Can anybody recommend some decent micro drill bits....
The 0.5mm from the last two packs did not last long and im careful....

If i can get a pack of .5mm bits it would be better..

I dont need the the actual drill as ive got two of them..

Hi Ant62.

I've got a couple of Micro-drill sets myself and they've both begun to lose the smallest ones! I now find it better to get a pack of 10 of one size off ebay to replace the broken ones with a few spares for later! O.5mm bits are about £3 - £4 for a pack of 10.
PS It doesn't matter how careful you are - they'll go ping eventually!Cursing

Cheers chaps..
Ive ordered a 10pk off ebay and some ftom uk dtills which look quality...

What really cheesed me off (being polite) is the fact i was at the point on the albatross build thst really needed the .5mm drill bit....Angry
Ive tried the .45mm and the .55mm and there just isnt enough twist on the drill and not they are not sharpe enough....

Have to wait now.....

A mate said call in B&Q and go to the dremmel section as he is sure they do a .5mm two pk.......

Well have a gander later..


Called into B&Q and nothing that small in the store....
Oh well i tried.
