Auger drill bits are designed for drilling holes into wood. They are known for their distinctive spiral grooves along the shaft, like a corkscrew. These are called flutes and have a sharp point on the tip for added precision. Auger drill bits come in multi-piece sets with a variety of sizes included for different jobs.
What Are Auger Drill Bits Used For?
Auger drill bits can make deep, clean holes in wood with larger diameters than other drill bits. The auger-style flutes ensure maximum depth and accuracy while drilling. Auger bits are often manufactured using hardened high carbon steel, which adds sharpness and reduces the need for regular maintenance.
