What are the different grades of drill rods?

Drill rod is tool steel, which is referenced by the following grades, per AISI standards: W‑1, O‑1, A‑2, S‑7, D‑2, M‑2, and H‑13. Certain grades of tool steel have similar alloy properties to 4140, but not all tool steel is 4140.

How do I identify a drill rod?

Some manufacturers paint the drill rod color code on at least one end of the rod. Others put a color-coded label on the package. There is no industry standard recognized by all manufacturers.

What is the strongest type of drill?

Cobalt (HSCO) includes between 5 and 8% cobalt in the base, making it an excellent option for drilling into harder steel and stainless steel. Carbide is the strongest drill bit for metal and is typically reserved for professional-grade tools.
