When comparing drill bits, price of the drill should not be the determining factor in your purchasing decision. For example, if Drill A cost $50 and Drill B cost $75, is Drill A always the better value? Even if both drills performed with the same quality of cutting, you couldn’t accurately determine that Drill A was the better choice. The life of both drill bits, or simply put, price per hole drilled is a much more accurate comparison of the value of each tool.
If Drill A at $50 can cut 1,000 holes over its lifetime, then its price per hole drilled would be $0.05 per hole. If the more expensive Drill B at $75 can cut 2,000 holes, then its price per hole drilled would be $0.0375 per hole. Drill B gives you a 25% savings over Drill A and offers the better value.
