Re: Carbide drill bits?

...anyone can comment on using
carbide drill bits in the #60 to #80 range. Are they too brittle?
Can they be used in hand-held chucks?
They are pretty brittle, and in this regard I have not had good luck with them in hand-held chucks. In fact, I broke two within five minutes in this regard- never to be repeated except in a press.

Now others may be able to hold things more steady than I...
