TOOL REVIEW – Bosch Carbide Tipped Drill Bit Set for Drilling Natural Stone, Granite, Slate, Ceramic and Glass Tiles
Electricians often work around tile and stone when installing receptacles, so having a unique selection of bits is essential. Let’s check out these carbide-tipped tile bits by Bosch and see how they do.
Today I’m testing out this 70-piece Ryobi impact-driving bit set.

Today I got to test out the new 142-piece Milwaukee Shockwave impact duty driver bit set. It is four small containers of a massive assortment of bits that are all in the Shockwave line and meant for use with an impact driver.

The kit comes with 142 bits including Robertson, Philips, and flats.
