Please refer to the main page for more specific information
Our range of HSS titanium coated drill bits are precision ground for extremely high performance. The reduced friction created by the tin coating means these drill bits can last up to 3 x longer than non coated drill bits and up to 10 x longer than rolled drill bits. Often called jobber drill bits these are the most universal and popular style drill bit in our range. They can drill through a variety of hard materials such as ferrous and non-ferrous steels, hardened steels, wood, plastic and other general construction materials.
The 118 degree precision split point allows the drill bit to grip instantly resulting in higher precision, accuracy and significantly faster drilling speeds. Our drill bits have been designed with specific performance features required to enhance productivity, lifetime, speed, efficiency and customer value. All HSS drill bits are manufactured in Denmark to European standard DIN338.

Flat spade bits drills are for drilling large holes in timber or plastics. Often referred to as wood, spade or dowel bits, these spade drill bits are made from extra hardened steel with toughened shanks. Features a central point and two raised spurs to keep the drill bit straight when operating. The curve spurs also help with timber chip clearance during drilling, particularly when drilling larger sized holes, this also reduces resistance when drilling which increases the efficiency and battery life of your handheld power drill. The faces are precision ground for higher performance and feature a quick chuck fitting for fast and easy bit changes whilst on the job site.

Brad point wood drill bits are a type of HSS drills above but with an added centre point. These are predominantly used in fine wood working as the sharpened angle points product less timber chipping than standard hss and the centre point prevents drill 'walk'. Our range of brad point drill bits are precision ground, making them perfect for use in dowelling, cabinetry and other woodworking applications where an exact sized hole is required. The cutting spurs around the centre point reduce splintering and provide smooth, clean exit holes with no blowout in the material. These are specifically for use in timber applications.
