Will this drill through black steel pipe?

I am trying to build to build a propane forge, so I need to drill holes in some steel pipe. Will this be able to do that?
Asked by: Zeke
Hi Zeke. Thank you for your great question. The Milwaukee Step Bit is designed for use in sheet metal and not for the thicker hard steel of a black gas pipe. You will want to use a Cobalt bit or a bit that is especially made to drill thru steel. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Milwaukee-Cobalt-Red-Helix-Drill-Bit-Kit-15-Piece-48-89-2331/205879044 Along with the steel drill bit, you will want to use a bit of oil to help reduce the temperature of the drill bit where it comes into contact with the steel pipe. Once you have marked the spot where you want to drill, use a hard steel punch to make a small indent in the pipe. Place you pipe into your vice to prevent any movement while you are drilling. Add a few drops of oil to the spot where you made your punch mark. Using a variable speed drill, start on a slow setting. Maintain the slow speed and allow the steel bit to cut thru the hardened steel pipe. Remember that more speed means more heat which will rapidly dull your dill bit. Repeat the process on the other holes. Please let us know if we can be of further assistance. Rick_HD_OC

#1 1/8 in.-1/2 in. x 1/32 in. Step Drill Bit is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 18.

Was making my own perforations in PVC Pipe for a french drain. Tried using a 1/2" spade bit first and it was extremely difficult. Bought this bit and found out immediately it is worth its weight in gold. Non only was I able to drill through sch 40 pvc pipe very quickly, my drill battery lasted much longer because of the ease of drilling. It was easy to pinpoint my drill mark and drill through it like butter. Very happy with the product in my application. I'm sure it would work well for other tasks as well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I feel stupid I feel stupid for never buying one of these before. I had to drill 8 1/2" holes thru 3/16 thick square tubing. Went through it like butter. Then I had to drill 96 3/8" holes thru 3/16" plate. Once again, no problem. The 3/16" step is pretty dull now but the time I saved is incredible. The bit doesn't owe me a dime. The rest of the bit is still good. I will buy again and also buy the whole set.
