If you are a professional and plan on using the bit a lot, you may want to buy a few extra so you always have one on hand when you need it.

What Can It Be Used For?

There are many different things you can use the bit for. It’s small design, makes it a great tool for anyone who wants to do minor drilling around the house. It can be used to make holes in walls for electrical wires or pipes. It can be used to hang pictures, mirrors or other decor on the wall. It can also be used to make pilot holes when installing screws.

It can also be used in many different types of materials. The bit is small enough to drill into wood, plastic, drywall, brick and even soft metals like copper, aluminum and soft steel.

Things to Watch Out For

When using the bit, it is important that you only use it on materials that are similar in hardness. For example, you should not use it on heavy duty materials like cast iron or steel because it will get dull very quickly.

You should also be careful not to apply too much pressure when drilling. If you do, it will cause the bit to break or bend. This means that you cannot press down too hard with your hands or use a drill that has too much power.

Also, don’t use the bit for extended periods of time. It can only handle light to medium duty drilling. If you try to use it for heavy duty work, it will get dull very quickly and will probably snap in two.

Lastly, always keep an eye on the bit when you are drilling. This may sound silly, but people often let their attention wander when using power tools. If you aren’t paying attention, you could end up drilling the bit too far into the material and it will get stuck. At this point you will either need to drill it out or replace it.

My Final Opinion

I think the bit is a good choice for people who want to do some light duty drilling at home. It is perfect for household repairs and small projects. It can also be used by professionals who need to drill into wood or some types of metal.

However, I do not recommend it for heavy duty drilling jobs. If you are planning on using the drill bit for this purpose, I suggest you buy a bigger and more powerful one.
