One of the best tools to have on your tool bench is a quality screwdriver power drill. And along with your power drill, you'll also need quality drill bit sets. After all, every task is different and will require different sizes and types of bits to match the task at hand.

This article takes a look at how to choose the right screwdriver bit set. Keep reading to discover insight into buying the best equipment for your tool bench.

Drill Bit Materials

Before you buy drill bits for your next project, you'll need to consider the type of materials you'll be working with. This will help you choose the right drill bit material for the task. Here's an overview of bit materials.

  • Steel
  • Carbide Tipped
  • Titanium Coated
  • Cobalt
  • High-Speed Steel

Each of these serves a specific purpose.

For example, steel bits are inexpensive and good for softwood but will dull quickly or break when used on hardwood. Cobalt tipped bits are extremely hard and work well even when heat builds up, making it perfect for drilling into stainless steel and other types of metal. Titanium is a tough material that tends to stay sharp longer than steel or high-speed steel. Carbide is extremely strong and will stay sharp the longest, while high-speed steel is a slightly superior version of a steel bit.

Drill Bit Tips

Just as there are different bit materials for each task, different tip designs serve different purposes.

For example, a twist bit is best for softwood. A spear point used at low speed is ideal for tile and glass. A hole saw or paddle bit is best for making larger holes, and a step bit at low speeds is typically the right choice for drilling into metal.

Drill Bit Styles

Drill bits come in numerous styles. They include twist, brad point, adjustable wood bit, spade bit, hole saw, auger bit, step bit, and Forstner bit.

Knowing What You Need

A well-rounded tool bench will feature a wide variety of bits, including an array of bit styles, materials, and tips. After all, you never know what kind of project will come up that requires a specific bit for making the job as easy as possible.

The selection that comes in a basic bit set will likely be limited to several sizes of twist bits, and perhaps a few paddle bits. That's why investing in a more advanced screwdriver bit set is a smart move. For example, a 32pc De-spacer bit wrench set would be the ideal addition to any home tool bench.
