These short pattern wood beaver drill bits are only 120mm long. When running a cable or pipe across the run of the joists, their short length enables you to get between the joists. The four flutes and four cutting edges offer rapid cutting with fast waste removal, whilst the four cutting spurs result in a clean break through. Designed especially for cordless drills, the short body length means as little friction as possible when drilling thereby maximising your battery's power. The 1/4" hex shank ensures these bits are easy to change in a chuck or hex bit holder. Supplied in a neat carry case, sizes 16mm, 20mm and 25mm.

Poor productBites hard with ability to cause injury. Avoid use within pedestal drill as work is lifted. Bits also tend to split timbers, softwood in this case, if drilling near ends.

Avoid for medium to hard timberI had the opportunity to use one of these in a 25mm dia for the first time recently. As with the reviewer above, I will not be doing so again. The issue I found is that the auger at the leading tip of the bit provides a powerful drawing action into the work piece. I was drilling into quality New Zealand pine, and found that the cutting edge of the bit just bound, violently, into the timber, as soon as the auger got bite into the timber -damaging it in the process. I dare say that if using soft timber it would be capable of drilling holes very quickly, but I would definitely avoid these if intending to use on harder materials -something which isn't covered in the product description.

Never againI used the 32mm Stubby bit and the first hole it drilled fine but after that it was a disaster. After the first hole I cleaned off the wood fragments from the thread section and the flutes so there was no excuse for the drill bit to stall but that is exactly what it did. I cleaned it off again and the same happened it went in a little and then stalled. I had a look at the bit each time and what I see as the problem is the flutes don't eject the wood fragments fast enough and they get compressed at the tip of the bit which then causes the wood to fill the grooves in the thread and the drill bit stops moving into the wood. I was going to use this 3 piece set but having tried the 32mm bit they are going back. Stick with a flat wood bit or self feed bits, they won't let you down. Never again will I buy anything Armeg, this isn't the first product of theirs that has left me down, save your money and buy a good make of flat or self feed bit, the flat bit is more reliable but not as durable and relies on you pushing it forward, the self feed can stall near the end of the cut as the thread has nothing to bite into, wiggle it or clean it off and it will go through.
