A masonry drill bit set is specifically designed to drill into such materials as stone, brick and concrete. These bits are most frequently used in hammer drills although they do not remove debris from the hole you are creating. You must stop every so often and do this yourself. These bits can become very hot during use so they must cool down before being changed. When you go to choose your bit set, consider the job you are undertaking. Tungsten carbide bits are the preferred choice as they are very strong, but durium tipped bits are becoming more common as they are made of a strong silicon bronze alloy. Just remember, these bits do work best when sharp so consider the cost of having the bits professionally sharpened when purchasing.
