I'm looking for 1/8 inch brad point bits for my drill press.
I've gone through a few DeWalt bits that I source at home depot.
I find these bits to be too flexible and tend to walk unless you are 100% on line. This is driving me nuts.
I take the time to line up my drilling jig and I'm still getting more than the occasional curve-ball.
I can see the bit flex as it's going into the wood. I use a lot of cedar, so it's not a problem with the wood being too hard. I go slowly and never put too much pressure on the bit. I rarely drill more than 2 inches to keep a good amount of the bit shaft chucked in hopes of mitigating the flex. .
Is anyone using something better?
