It wouldn't hurt to have some cutting oil present. It will save your drill bits.
Agreed. A little used motor oil or WD-40 goes a long way. Keep high pressure and medium speed, not full speed.

I'd just go grab a box set of DeWalt bits at Lowe's, Home Depot, etc. Those are all I use. I've used a whole lot of different drill bits and the Dewalts are good for the money, and fairly often on sale.

I also just resharpen mine when it gets time instead of buying new. I haven't bought drill bits in - man, probably 2 years. Easiest way is on a bench grinder but you can do it with an angle grinder in a pinch.

What's that app? I want that.
It’s called iEngineer.

Very handy tool. You do need to pay a small fee to get metric hardware, but I think it’s like $1.99 or something. I’ve had it for years.

Here is the link to the Apple App Store. Not sure if there is an android version or not.

Killer! Looks like it's not on Android, but I'll get it on my work phone. Thanks!
