Dewalt 12v Impact and Combi Drill Bits Advice

Hello,

I have recently started to build up my tool collection. I have bought a Dewalt 12v Impact and Combi Drill. I will probably get an 18V later on in the year. Question is what Drill bits for both would you recommend?

What you drilling ?

I tend to buy good quality drill bits as they can last longer / stay sharper for longer...

Sometimes a drill bit kit can be a good starting point if you’ve nothing and you can replace / add to it as required.

Saw a DeWalt drill bit set including some screwdriver bits on offer the other day - check out Screwfix and Toolstation for ideas

Dewalt masonry bits are my go to for smaller sizes not needing SDS.
