While these drill bits aren't made for masonry, they are perfect for the jobs you'll need around the house. Most DIY around the house will be drilling into wood or drywall, and these drill bits are perfect for the job. These are the drill bits I use around my home, and they never let me down.
When you are just starting in your own home, there is so much you need to buy to get ready. I recently purchased this drill bit set for a friend moving into their first home. It has bits for wood and masonry, as well as screwdriver bits and even a countersink drill for making things look good. You may want to replace this set has you become more adept, but for a beginner, this is a great place to start.
I have multiple different drills for different jobs, but my favorite is my impact drill. It never fails to get the job done. These drill bits from Makita are specifically designed to fit in an impact drill, and, because they are Makita, these drill bits will last you practically forever. Makita makes some of the best tools you can buy, and its drill bits are no exception.
Because almost all of the houses in the US are made of wood, having a good set of drill bits designed for wood is a must. But when you use a lot of wood, you also use a lot of screws. This multi-box set of drill and driver bits from DeWalt has everything you need to build an entire wood house from scratch! OK, maybe not from scratch, but it will undoubtedly do any DIY job you'll need.
This drill bit set is a cornucopia of fantastic drill bits. Not only does it have screwdriver bits, countersink bits, and titanium bits, it also has a set of masonry drill bits. These allow you to drill into fireplaces and other stonework quickly and easily. It also has a small ratchet screwdriver to help you with handheld projects and a small extendable magnet to help you pick up the screws you lose down the back of the sofa!
Drill down into the job
Having a drill bit set, instead of loose drill bits means you will always find the bit you need. At least, you will if you always remember to put them back. Having a set like this also means you are likely to have the right size bit for the job you have on hand.
My favorite drill bits are the DeWalt Titanium drill bits. They have lasted a good long while now, and are still sharp and accurate. I use them weekly to do DIY projects, and they never fail.
If you are looking to fill your toolbox for any eventuality, then the Bosch 91-piece is the right set. With masonry drill bits and screwdriver bits aplenty, you'll have everything you need for just about any job.
