A week ago, I built a frame/stand for a 3 point hitch log splitter. When making the legs, I had to drill through, 1/4" and 3/16" angle iron for the pins to attach the legs. I started with my usual stash of bits, and quickly realized that they just weren't gonna do the job. I broke out my DeWalt drill bit set and they went through the stuff with absolutely no problem.
Interestingly...... I also tried some Harbor Freight bits, and they worked too. Normally, I hate those things, as they are set off center in the hex fitting, the hex fitting cracks, and the others just plain wobble when properly chucked. But this time......... they worked. Go figure!!
I have several Milwaukee tools that I bought when I built my house. I've grown to hate the hammer drill, as the chuck won't hold the drill bit tightly after a few minutes of drilling. Finally went out and bought a Bosch Bull Dog. Love it!!
