Metal Monday: Drill Bits for Scrap

65-CarbideiScrappers….What’s going on!?!?!?!

We cant believe that the weekend went so quick again and here we are on Mondays, but Metal Mondays is in full effect today!

A lot of people ask about about drill bits and the different types of bits that are out there. The most common drill bit is a hard steel drillbit, those are the ones that you will most likely have in your toolbox. But there there are two other ones that you will want to look out for.

Carbide – Most commonly used in machine shops and other high tooling locations, this material is very expensive to buy and also to scrap. You won’t find it too often during your household cleanouts, as Carbide is not really needed at home locations.

High Speed Steel – another type of very hard drill bit, these bits are generally 3-10 times more valuable than normal steel…and sometimes can be resold to companies that can sharpen and resell the tools.

Hope this helps a little bit, always be on the look out for bits!

Scrap ya later!
