I have recently also found out that if I am careful not to let the drill bit get too hot, it lasts MUCH longer. So I drill like 3 holes, stop, then put in 3 dowels. Usually, especially this time of year, that's enough of a wait. Sometimes, I'll cut wood, check on the garden , do weights, or other activities while I wait. It makes a big difference.
