The Forgemaster Wood Auger Drill Bits have specially designed, ground and sharpened cutting edges. The raised leading cutting edge scores the diameter of the hole to prevent unwanted chipping of the material. Heat treated for strength and durability.
The screwed point eliminates the potential for the bit to wander, and pulls the bit through the material during drilling. This provides faster, cleaner and more accurate holes. The flute of the auger bit has been engineered to remove the debris as quickly and efficiently as possible, it also helps to dissipate heat more effectively. The hexagon shank will fit in most rotary drill machines and braces, it also reduces slipping.
Auger bits are traditionally used by tradesmen on 'final fix' jobs or work where the cut surface will be visible. Suitable for drilling hard and soft wood, plywood and particle boards including MDF and chipboard.
