Here’s my .02. I will not buy a HSS (steel) bits, only carbide tipped. I’ve found the solid carbide bits are brittle and tend to break. As for buying sets of bits, I still have brand new bits that came in sets I bought 30 years ago, and have never used. I would rather spend the money on what I’ll use. As for brands, I have no real preference except for a sale item from a top brand that is appreciably less than another top brand.

DEBBIE - Don’t think it’s OK for a bit to break. It’s not pretty what pieces of steel traveling 10,000 – 25,000 RPM’s can do, or go through.
