Question:

What kind of drill bit will go threw steel?

I need to penetrate steel on my car but don't know which bit to use. Are there special bits for steel?

Answer:

it's go through steel buddy. But i would imagine that a majority of your standard bits out there will do it. I know there are material specific bits but i would say if you didn't have real expensive drill bits I would try pretty much any of them. If you are talking about the frame of your car or something that thick, then a heavy-duty would be necessary. Don't go drop a lot of money on a diamond bit unless you just keep tearing them up trying to drill through whatever it is you're trying to accomplish. Ive seen wood bits go through some heavy duty metal, so give it a try and save some money.

Yes. But normal drills are god for steel. Most good regular twist drills sold will go through mild steel no problem. Just so long as you don't buy a wood auger or a carbide-tipped concrete drill

I think you mean through being that said, they make special bits for drilling metal that you can pick up at any good hardware store ps if drilling on your car, be sure you don't drill into the gas tank, muffler, etc

Yes, they'll be marked HSS, High Speed Steel.
