Our woodworking expert George Vondriska teaches you about the range of drill bits that you might find in your workshop and helps you choose the right bit for your weekend shop projects. He discusses the specifications of and proper usage for a paddle or spade bit (good for DIY projects), a twist bit (good for drilling into metal), a brad point bit (good for drilling into woodworking projects), a hole saw (also good for DIY projects) and a forstner bit (good for drilling large and overlapping holes).
