I've been seeing these drill bits a lot lately. I've heard that they are mostly for thin metal. Anyone have any experience with them?

Thanks!!

uniwhat?? :confused:
Unibit or a step-bit. Used for making various sized holes in sheet products.
Thing I like about them is that the holes always come out perfectly sized and round where sometimes I get some ovelling when doing holes in thin stock with a drill bit

I've used one to enlarge holes in sheet metal, and it worked good.

I think it's the only bit these :clown:'s own.....

:laughing: :laughing: :laughing: No doubt.

I've used them to open up the holes for the body mounts on my Wag to fit the later style body mounts, was a helluva lot easier than trying to work with what woulda been the same size drill bit.

Also a few times to open up holes in 3/16 or 1/4 in a drill press. Saved some time swapping bits in increments; but it'd be damn expensive to only use unibits.

They have them all the way to 1 3/8 ths even.
I use them all the time. Even on 1/4" stuff., you just have to drill from both sides.

Ovals? Hell I'd be happy with ovals, only thing I ever got were triangles with regular bits :D

Those things are a godsend.

Unibit's are the shit. They are pricey but well worth it, I use mine up to 1/4" thick. Just keep them well oiled while cutting and they will last a looooong time :)


Oh and yes use a pilot hole 1st:D

I have several sets of unibits i really like them but i like my roto broachs better. I like the unibits for smoothing the edges of the hole
