However, they cannot  drill  into concrete or metal as they require special  drill  bits. These  drill  bit sets have  drill  bits ranging from size eight millimeters to thirty two millimeters. Now if you need to have some concrete or masonry work done then you need the tungsten carbide  drill  sets as they have the required strength to  drill  holes through concrete. Mind you, they may be expensive than the regular steel bits.

Another advantage of a power  drill  is that they can work as screw drivers if you buy special hardened steel bits which have round shank on the top and the bit head is like a regular screwdriver. If you need to have the  drill  bits for use with nuts and fasteners then you will have to buy a  drill  bit set which has square base and round shaft. That square base fits into the fasteners and the round hole into the power  drill .

These  drill  bits have diamond either bonded or sintered onto the  drill  tip which helps  drill  holes easily into glass. There are special diamond  drill  bits which can also  drill  holes into the porcelain tiles.
