I have asked questions about drills and screws and have gotten all kinds of answers but let me ask some particular questions about drills.

Nick mentioned the fallacy of us when we mistakenly buy high priced drills and cheap drill bits.

First let me say I use Shopsmith brad point drills https://mechanicguides.com/best-cobalt-drill-bit-sets and I'm very happy. I also have a set of Sears Craftsman twist drills that have served me well but I need to replace. My Forstner bits were a set sold by Delta, and I usually use Black & decker or Irwin spade bits.

I like my brad point drills from Shopsmith so lets move on to twist drills. I want to buy a real good set of twist drills immediately.
What brand twist drills do you use?
Are Titianium bits worth the money?
How about cobalt bits?
where do you get you bits?

Also looking for advice on counter sinks, auger bits, and anything else used in wood working drilling operations.

A woodworking forum might be a better place to ask for this info.

And whose Nick?

Lets let this play out.
Preferred company in profile is "Storm" not "Google", which is a spam bot tell.
