Right now you can get Milwaukee’s 48-89-1105 1/16″ to-1/2″ titanium coated 20-piece twist drill bit set for $24.99, about half off retail and the lowest price we found online.
According to Milwaukee’s website, the set comes with three flat, no-spin shanks at 13/64″ and larger to prevent slipping in the chuck and a 135-degree split point that self-centers to reduce “walking.” The titanium coating allows bits to withstands high temperatures by reducing friction and increasing resistance to wear over time.
Reviews [What’s This?] over at Amazon indicate that the bits are quite sharp right out of the box. This set may not be the highest quality set of bits out there, but it’s a good basic 20-piece set for a reasonable price, and it seems most of the customer reviews are positive about the general durability.
