Nice drill and incredibly useful piece of kit. I barely use drill bits in mine now- bought a MT mag drill holder/ adapter and use mag drill cutters in it for probably 99% of the holes drilled. When the feed and speed is set correctly the speed of these cutters is unreal.
Just a thought and much more cost effective perhaps than scouring the net for used twist drills.

Bought another drill but never used it really after buying a mag drill.
Eventually it developed a problem so when scrap was high it went.
