In Detail

Specifically designed to drill accurate holes in the end grain of wood mounted on the woodturning lathe, the parabolic flute design of this bit clears the chips quickly and prevents chip burn. As with all long hole augers, frequent withdrawing will help to clear the waste and reduce the risk of overheating. Dimensions are 880mm overall with 6.5mm shank and a bit diameter of 8mm at the tip tapering to 7.9mm for clearance. Made in Austria from top quality HSS-M2 steel. A worthwhile accessory is the "twist-lock" handle (178 x 30mm) which is available separately. Made in Axminster from steel with a comfortable rubber grip, this handle will allow accurate hole depth and prevent accidental contact of the bit with your counterbore drive.

very good

first attempt at boring through a table lamp approx 12" tall i manage to create a perfect hole from one end to the other,
i went half way through then turn the lamp around and went half way again meeting in the middle couldn't been easier.
I also purchase the evolution long boring handle to go with it, worked very well, one thing i will say a used the cheaper axminster hollow cup centre to do this and i did struggle a bit with chippings blocking the drill.I would recommend buying the evolution centre cup with ejection holes for easier drilling.

cracking service from axminster as usual
