Masonry drill bits are not very sharp but possess a hard carbide chisel tip - therefore you need a impact drill or a more powerful rotary hammer to be successful in most cases.

Once you're done drilling (make sure to wear personal protection against dust and stone chips!), you'll usually need wall anchors to secure anything in the hard substrate.

We can't just let everyone drill into the walls, but please don't hesitate to tell a manager if there is a spot that could really use a hole!

These special bits are not compatible with regular jawed drill chucks! They have grooves which allow them to move back and forth within an SDS chuck.

Our rotary hammer has a chuck for "SDS-plus" drill bits or chisels.

We currently have the following SDS drill bits:

  • 5 mm, short
  • 6 mm, short
  • 8 mm, short
  • 6 mm, long
