Now feature thicker cutting edges and larger shanks.
As professional tradesmen continually seek power tool accessories that not only stand up on the job, but also help them do their jobs better and faster, Irwin Tools today announces the introduction of the next generation of best-in-class IRWIN SPEEDBOR wood drilling flat bits, that have a 40% thicker cutting edge and 25% larger shank, providing longer drilling life and added durability.
IRWIN SPEEDBOR invented the flat bit in 1968, and now, the most popular flat bit in the market is even better. Carpenters, plumbers and electricians won’t be disappointed with this latest innovation.
IRWIN SPEEDBOR flat bits still maintain the phenomenal speed and hole quality professional tradesmen have come to expect. The patented BLUE-GROOVE point and cutting edge, first introduced in 2006, provides fast chip removal and quickly cuts through wood.
Double cutting spurs scribe the outside of the hole, reducing breakout, and ensuring clean, true holes. Plus, these extremely durable bits have a 1/4” quick-change shank that is compatible with all standard drills and 1/4” chucks, including impact drills.
The latest IRWIN SPEEDBOR flat bits are available in a short 4-inch length for accessibility in tight spaces, a standard 6-inch length, and an extra-long 16-inch length for extended reach. They’re available in a full range of diameters, so there’s a bit that’s perfect for drilling any size hole.
IRWIN SPEEDBOR flat bits can be found at home centers, hardware stores, and industrial tool distributors throughout the U.S. and Canada. The suggested retail price of 4-inch and 6-inch flat bits ranges from $2.99 to $6.99, and 16-inch ranges from $8.99 to $13.99.
