Place to buy big drill bits?

Ok, I've been looking around and I need to find some drill bits. First I need a 51/64 and later a 61/64. The closest bit I can find to what I need is a 15/16th bit at Northern. I need a 51/64 with a reduced 1/2" shank and that is the next size up. Is there any place in town that is THE place to find stuff like this?

CW Rod off of the North Belt feeder, right before Aldine Westfield. I think it's on Gears Rd.?

You can probably order one online from McMaster Carr.

I'm pretty sure you'll just waste you time trying to find those sizes at any normal tool store. I've been through it already. I have a 15/16 if you can use it.

You should just buy a set of unibits (also called step bits). they are way way way better than regular drill bits anyway, especially for drilling metal. they aren't too cheap (figure about 30 bucks each) but I have 2 of em and between those 2 sizes I have just about any size I'd ever need to drill covered, up to and over an inch.

I love these things. The only problem is if you need to go through anything thicker than about 1/4 inch your out of luck.

15/16 is just a bit to small and I've got unibits. Only problem is this is to build hard tail struts for my bike to slam it so i want to make sure it fits right. The finished struts will be about 17mm thick so unibits won't make that hole.

Sears has nothing over 1/2 inch.

I've never heard of CWRod, I'll have to check them out. Thanks.

Try contacting one of the local W W Grainger sites - there are quite a few around town. Any one of them should be able to tell you the closest stocking site for the bits on the below link.

Rex Supply in Houston = For sure can get them, and most likely will have them. The style of bit you are looking for is known as : Silver & Deming.
