These are Drill Bits that YOU submtted

One of the most interesting things I get to do is go through pictures of wells and well drilling machines and parts that you, the users of this site, come up with.  Here are drill bits that users have submitted.

 If you have created a drill bit for DIY well drilling, please send me a picture of it and I will post it!  Let me know if it is OK to use your name.  Send it to mike.willis@runbox.com   THANKS!!
