Drill bits with a large (or flat) drill bit angle, such as a 135° split-point angle, are used for drilling harder materials such as … These angles are an artifact from the time when drilling was largely a manual process, and the drill bits were conventional conical shapes. Flatter points, such as those with 135-degree angles, are suited for drilling into harder material. The chisel edge is what consumes a great deal of the thrust in drilling. Split points seem to self-center better. If you have questions about the right drill point for your job, just ask us at Regal Cutting Tools. The 118° tips are for general purpose drilling. Bosch Bl14 14Pc. 1/8" drills 10" long with a conventional point have been known to bend to the point of looking like a jump rope [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/shocked.gif"%20alt="[/img] Now THAT, will get your attention! 1 X 118 degree le The tips and the round shanks are ideal for drilling precise holes in wood, plastic, and soft metal.

You can easily wholesale quality 118 degree drill at wholesale prices on Made-in-China.com. Today, with advanced drilling machines, multi-faceted drill points are the norm. The different configurations are selected based on the drilling application—for example: Conventional points with 118° point angles are used most commonly for drilling in a wide array of materials. A 135° drill is flatter than 118°, which means that more of its cutting lips engage with the material surface sooner to begin the full metal cutting action. Grainger's got your back. A 118° drill bit angle is common on general purpose drill bits used for drilling a range of materials, such as wood, aluminum, and plastic. ( My memory could be wrong on this one ). There are three commonly used angles in consumer drill bits: 90-degrees, 118-degrees, and 135-degrees. Harder materials, such as stainless steel or titanium, will require a flatter, heavy duty drill bit, such as a 135° split-point bit.

Drawbacks are considerable extra expense in producing and sharpening a much more geometrically complex form. They may require a pilot hole to keep the bit from wandering. Benefits are reduced drilling thrust and better self-centering. Check out our guide below for what angles are optimal based on the material that is being drilled: There are a number of drill point configurations and these may be found in both 118° and 135° variants. Carbide Drill Bits with Coolant Holes. The general purpose drill points found on most jobber drills are 118° angled drills. In addition to the drill point angle, factors that can affect successful drilling include: There are two main characteristics that define a drill point.
