They've got carbide, cobalt and tin coated, your choice.

When you walk in take a right and go back towards the front wall.

carbide should only be used on exotic metals, hastalloy, inconel, tungsten, etc. ihmo where burning the drill out is worth the cost

what r u trying to drill

FYI - if you break a HSS (high speed steel) drill in a part, a carbide dril can get it out but u would need a stable and sturdy machine, if u break a carbide drill in a hole, chipping or burn it out with EDM, good luck on the EDM shops

anything on your bike is HSS dril material

if u have any other questions about drilling ill gladly answer to the best of my experience

i broke a bolt in a marine engine head and then broke the extractor in it now i need to drill all the way through it. the broken extractor chews up any bit i put in it. any suggestions? preferably w/o buying a new powerhead.
a cousin of mine is supposed to grab some carbide bits from the machine shop where he works, but he's so unreliable, i'm trying to find it elsewhere.

ok the the extractor should be near the top of the hole which greatly reduces your risk of lodging the carbide, get some center drills too just to start straight,, they ( and the carbide) should cut the extractor easily, u wanna put like 10lbs of pressure while drlling that out, also about 750 ish rpm, and clamp the head down firmly dont let your friend hold the part while u drill (just fyi) and constant compressed air to cool the drill (30psi)
its gonna seem like nothings happening at first then the extractor is gnna get hot and cut like butter do not press hard to get done fast this a slow process, let the drill work
i hope this helps

thanks for the advice, but the head is still attached to the boat, removing it is out of the question. the hole has already been started, hopefully everything works out tomorrow. thanks again.
