    looking for a certain drill bit......

    Do they make a drill bit that cuts sideways? I'm looking for one that I can make slots in metal with. It has to be something I can use with a regular hand held drill. Do they make something like that?

    You can use either a end mill or a rotary file bit. For a hand drill I'd use a double cut rotary file bit but you'd be better off using a small air grinder for the speed. Hope this helps.............http://www.discount-tools.com/rfilesindexmain1.htm
