Good suggestions.  I'll check them out.

The main reason I want brad points is for precise positioning.

I just don't think I can get split points aligned on my layout marks as accurately.

Assuming you are using a drill press with the work piece locked down, you'll only need one brad point or a piece of drill rod with a machined center point to position your hole. Then swap out the centering bit for the real drill bit and have at it.

I ended up buying the 28 piece Fuller brad point set from Tools for Working Wood.
https://www.toolsforworkingwood.com/store/dept/CFF/item/MS-BPD.XX

Imperial sizes in 1/64 increments from 5/64 to 1/2" in a steel case.  Individual replacement bits are available.

Made in USA.  $200 + shipping which was surprisingly reasonable

It seemed expensive at first but not after I considered what I had spent on some Festool accessories.

I'm very impressed and can hardly wait to use them.
