Where to buy good quality drill bit?

Recommended Posts

any neighbor hardware stores will sell the bits. else you can go to self-fix or homefix to buy the bits. make sure you get the correct type of drill bits for drilling walls and you have a hammer drill as well.

if you are planning to drill tiles, buy the type of drill bits for drilling tiles instead using the masonry bit for drilling walls. set your drill to normal drilling mode instead of hammer drilling mode. this will miminise the chances of cracking/chipping the tiles when drilling. after drilling through the tile, change to the masonry bit to drill the wall behind the tile so as not to damage the tile drill bit.

most contractors can't be bothered to use a tile drill bit when drilling the tiles in toilet or kitchen and cause cracks/chips on the tile.

Would agree with this totally, good advice

You will need to decide what drill bit size to buy and the corresponding anchor size that will fit into the drill hole. I suggest using a 6mm drill bit as a start.

That is actually a good idea because i think the last thing anyone would want to have is hole patches so start with a small hole first and then work your way up if needed
