Does anyone know the difference between steel and titanium bits. I guess titanium is harder. I ask because I recently bouhgt a multi bit set and for every steel bit there was also a titanium one. So when do I use which and for what ????

Titanimu bits are an inexxpensive bits with a sprayed on powder coating and heated to 650 degree.
They only run cooler, and do not cut as well as a better quality of american made bit in 118 degree. This is an upgrade for selling bits, and you will find this in most tiawan or china made products. the better bits to use in most common steel cutting jobs are a cobalt drill bit. In drilling any type of job, it is better to use the correct size bit and don"t use a pilot drill. what happens when you use a pilot, the main bit will cut on the point dulling or sometimes chipping and will not cut. Once a chip occours on the point, the bit is worthless.
