- When drilling through hard materials, such as stainless steel or titanium, it is important to use the right wire size and type of drill bit. One of the options is to use a 26 cobalt drill bit, which has a higher percentage of cobalt alloy in the steel composition. This makes the drill bit more resistant to heat and wear and allows it to cut through tough metals with less effort. However, there are some drawbacks to using a 26 cobalt drill bit, such as higher cost, lower availability, and increased risk of breaking. Therefore, it is advisable to follow some best practices when using this type of drill bit, such as:
– Use a low drilling speed and moderate pressure to avoid overheating the drill bit and the workpiece.
– Use a cutting fluid or lubricant to reduce friction and improve chip removal.
– Use a pilot hole or a center punch to guide the drill bit and prevent it from wandering or slipping.
– Use a drill press or a steady hand to ensure accuracy and stability.
– Sharpen the drill bit regularly or replace it when it becomes dull or damaged.
By following these tips, you can make the most of your 26 cobalt drill bit and achieve precise and clean holes in hard materials.
