Topic tags/keywords: drill press bits

I just got home from my local Woodcraft store and wanted to share the “good Deal” I purchased. They have a 170 piece Brad Point Drill Bit Set regular price $59.99 on sale for $29.99 It has nineteen sizes from 1/16” too 3/8” with 5 – 10 bits of each size. I went to the store to get some cabinet scrapers and couldn’t pass this up.

I live a mile from a Rockler, and 26 miles from Woodcraft. I don’t get over there too often.

I got this set last time it was on sale. The bits aren’t great quality, but at this price for this many bits, I don’t feel bad about throwing them away when they break or get dull.

Hi Larry,

I am surprised that was all you bought. Every time I go in there I seem to come out with loads of stuff that I bought on impulse.

Oh I did impulse buy…big time. Went to get scrapers and ended up with the drill bits, Loc-Line hose pieces, adapters and small oval and rectangular end pieces for the Loc-line, Swedish scraper, new bastard file and burnisher, and some rubber band clamps for my wife (she just bought between 400-500 ceramic molds and needed large rubber bands to hold them together…gotta go find some old inner tubes to slice into rubber bands…waaay cheaper that way). And another 50” flat clamp. All in all a very nice shopping experience; especially when the wife kept bringing me things and saying “honey you need this too”. Now I gotta buy her a KILN lol.

I purchased the same set. Not great quality. The largest is maybe 5/16” if I remember right. Like Charlie, I thrown them out when they need sharpening or break.

I bought 30 lbs of assorted hign-speed steel drill bits on ebay a couple of years ago. I don’t think I’ll ever need to buy another one.

They also have a cheapy Tenon Saw on sale (lunch break just got back myself) it is made in England and was on special for 4.99. Not being a Neanderthal I did not have one and have been interested in testing out a Western style back saw. Once it is used I will post a review….
