Wood  Boring Drill Bits


Are you interested in buying wood boring drill bits? Then you will need to know some more about wood boring drill bits to make sure you get your money's worth. Here is some more information on the subject:

Some wood boring drill bits have cutting heads that are easily retractable. They also include cutting wings and pilot screws that are self-feeding. This type is usually preferred by contractors, and by professional builders and workers. The sturdy helical head is also said to perform much better than the flat ones. This is because the first cuts are made much faster, and it does not require very much axial force. These heavy drills also have a pilot screw that is very useful in pulling the cutting head into a piece of wood, because of the tapered threads it has.

There are, however, some disadvantages that these heavy wood boring drill bits have. One of these disadvantages is that the cutting head has a square profile. These squared surfaces usually hang up at the exit end of the drilled hole when the cutting head retracts through the hole. Another disadvantage is that a pilot screw can be damaged after intense use, or after using it on hard material. A pilot screw is also usually difficult to repair or sharpen.
