Description

In Detail

These SELFCUT flat bits differ from conventional flat bits as they have a self cutting threaded point to draw them into the work, combine this with the 2 cutting spurs they will cut quickly at a good feed rate. The tip and cutting edges are precision-ground for dimensionally correct bore holes. They all have a 1/4" hexagonal shank as per DIN 3126-E6.3. Suitable for boring holes in hard and soft woods as well as light building materials. The correct drill speed must be selected and this is stated on the packed dependent on the size. A 152mm long extension is available separately.

Good for their intended purpose

These drill bits are not intended to be used by cabinet makers etc. for precision boring. They are designed for drilling a quick hole through softwood such as joists. I use them in a little 10,8v makita & have never had a problem.

Waste of time and money

Bought this thinking it might save time as my old cheapo one was causing wood to smoulder.
Looked the business in the pack. When I did a few sample tries on an old bit of timber just jammed instantly and was difficult to pull out even in reverse. This time burning wood was replaced by the smaell of overheating electric drill motor. Tried it once on the joists in the loft and went back to my old cheapo one. Wasted me time and money!

leads to drill stalling - very painful

I really don't like these - the tip of the bit grabs the wood too hard, meaning that the bit tries to "bite" the workpiece too fast. When drilling I want to go at the speed I choose, not the speed the bit wants to go at. Because it tries to drill in too fast, it gets stuck too easily leading to a painful hand-wrench when the drill stalls. Again - because it tends to stall you have to run the drill at top speed, so you don't have as much control. It gets really, really hot during use, and since it doesn't throw the debris out behind it, I've nearly started a fire with one of these.

keeps jamming

Like the previous reviewer, but simply in softwood. The bit works if everything is good, very fast and striaght, BUT if anything disturbs the cut then it jams almost solid. That long threaded section holds the bit tight and there is no chance of running in reverse. Trying to free it will burn out drills as it is jammed that tightly
