Drill bits


I am useing cutters to drill holes size 10-14mm through 8-12mm mild steel.The bits tend to snap easily due to vibration of the work surface. Is there a particular make of cutter more suitable for this application other then the standard bit ie. titanium ....?

any reccomendations would be appreciated

Drill bits

Better secure the material to eliminate the vibration. Clamps come in all kinds of sizes and shapes.

Drill bits

im using standard cutter drill bits , this type shank annular cutters

securing the surface is not possible as its part of a large structure
that vibrates constantly.

sometimes they snap on break through.

would a different alloy cutter make any diffrence? if so wich type?
