    Default Liberty drill bit

    I'd like to try using a proper maple tapping bit this season, but I can't justify paying the same amount in shipping for a single drill bit as the cost of it. So I looked to see what was available on Amazon. Only thing they have there in 5/16" is something from "Liberty":https://www.amazon.com/Liberty-Suppl...=3NGGMZGBCYRYU

    Anybody ever used one of these? Any good? Or should I just stick with the regular bit I've been using, and add a bit to my Bascom's order next year?
