Drilling holes... Best cheapdrill bit

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I'm gonna have a crack at drilling some holes (not sure if that's the best term have a crack)

Has anyone had any experience with these three drill bits or can suggest any other sellers on Ebay?

I know they are the cheap and nasty options but most people have said they've had no problems if it's just a few holes and I'm not going to spent $150 on a pro drill bit may as well get someone to do it for that price...

Also if anyone has bought a few and had some extras they want to sell let me know.

Of if anyone wants to come gimme a hand I could fix you up cash or beer or what ever let me know.

Probably only need 2-4 drilled at the moment.

I bought a cheap nasty one from Hong Kong. Pretty sure they were $4 or $5 with free postage. Almost too good to be true(which im always very cautious of). But i drilled 5 or 6 holes with no dramas, Im sure the cheaper ones would lose their edge after a few holes. But even 5 holes is good for $5. Its not as hard to do as you think, give it a go.

I'm sure it could have done more, but i lost my drill bits in the floods. Since moving I don't have the space to be setting up any new tanks, so haven't done any more drilling. But I am helping a mate with a tank reno soon. Will be drilling 4 holes with a new cheapy off ebay. Will post pics of the build as we go. Sorry for thread hijack

Seem to vary slightly some have a larger slit at the tip of the bit others just look flimsy but pics don't mean too much from a Hong Kong ebay seller I guess...

Basicall looking to see if anyone got some of any particular seller that worked well..

Josh,

I got mine from Trade Tools & paid around $30 & it has done about 40 tanks, also got some Hong Kong Ebay ones in a package deal I did and the quality is not there and they came with a standard masonry bits and have never used them to compare them.
