Drill bits may not be sexy, but they are pretty essential, so it’s good to stay current with new products. Irwin just released its new Multi-Material “Jobber” Length drill bits. These feature diamond-ground carbide tips and a double-milled flute to help guide material out of the hole. They’re designed with brick, block, tile, metal, wood, plastic and marble in mind. Compatible with all 1/2″ and 3/8” chucks, you can get them in 3- to 5-inch jobber lengths and also 16-inch extended lengths. Diameters range from 1/8 to 1/2 inches.
