drill bit

The pointed part of a drill that bores a hole into the surface or material being drilled. I think we'll need a different size drill bit to make a bigger hole in this wood.

[8] designed a lab-scale testing system to test drilling performance of a drill bit and investigated the effect of bit design factors on the performance of drilling.
The response characteristics of a drill bit (i.e., the damped characteristics) can be under, critical, or overdamped given its motion equation, that is, (1).
This study defined equations for the motion of a drill bit when struck by a piston and expanded the dynamic properties of the drill bit based on the conditions [zeta] and [alpha].
This paper proposed six conditions for the dynamics of a drill bit struck by a piston impact, as summarized below.
The tendency of a drill bit to drill over size is known as runout, and can be minimized by step drilling to within about 1/64" (.015") of full size, then using the full-sized bit to finish the hole.
Rochelle Park, NJ, March 14, 2013 --(PR.com)-- For every screw there is a driver, for every fastener, a drill bit. But as any contractor will tell you, having the right pair on hand when you need them can pose a challenge.
Attach a masonry drill bit piece or a drill bit designed for drilling ceramic tiles to your drill and start to drill your tile.
Choose a drill bit with a diameter equal to the screw shank, not including the threads.
A It will obviously be much easier if you clamp the tiles down on a workbench when doing the drilling and also use a drill bit guide to keep the bit into position, but the real trick is to keep the bit wet.
* Drill stop collar attaches to a drill bit to prevent the bit from going further than desired.
Sandvik Rock Tools (SRT) of Sweden has developed a program called CASE (computer aided simulation of efficiency) which, in combination with a so-called force-penetration test which determines the likely performance of a drill bit in any given rock type, can simulate real drilling operations and calculate the efficiency of the drilling system, and optimize the choice of drill tools.
When a drill bit is new, it has a rock resistance value somewhat lower than the optimum for the drilling equipment that is being used.
In practice, hold the screw up to the light and match a drill bit to the shank diameter.
You just stick a drill bit in your drill and pull the trigger.
A chuck (opening photo) clamps around a drill bit while a motor spins it around.
