IRWIN SPEEDBOR Max Speed Auger Drill Bit Set
IRWIN SPEEDBOR Max Speed Auger Bit Set, 6 Piece, 3041006

1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8, 1 and 1-1/4-inch bits.

Check Price and Availability

Tri-Flute design, 3 cutting edges, full screw tip allows to self-feed.
Grooved hex shank, fit all standard 1/4″ quick change chucks.
Speedbor are better behaved than the larger diameter bits. If you need a cleaner hole, better to use a Forstner with a drills extension.
The flutes are really sharp and they motor through most wood almost dangerously fast if you aren’t careful. A big challenge is finding a way to support the drill firmly in place so that the holes would be drilled straight and true. They cut good, sharp holes, and the fluted design clears the chips quite well.
You will need a drill with a lot of low-speed torque to do it, or the self-feeding screw tip will rapidly draw the bit into contact with the material and stall the drill.

Medium-fast screw point ideal for general wood boring applications, full-length heat treated bit guards against bending, double spur, double cutter design – clean hole finish.
These augers aren’t in the highest league. The cutting edges have large burrs, and the cutting edge geometry and reliefs vary.
The performance is quite good, however. They bore straight, largely clean holes, which for most users are adequate.

Irwin Tools 43612 Auger Drill Bit

3/4-Inch 62T Series

Check Price and Availability

Medium-fast screw point, full-length heat treated bit guards, double spur, double cutter design.
The tool has a square tapered shank at one end that fits into a square hole in the bottom of the brace chuck; this keeps it from slipping in the brace while drilling. The jaws of the brace clamp the round shaft of the brace in place.
The tip of an auger has a tapered screw point that not only starts the bit at the precise point you wish to drill a hole, but also guides the tool through the wood as you drill. The screw point transfers the lateral circular motion into a vertical force that helps pull the but down through the wood as you drill. The end of the bit has two cutting edges.
