Easy-Use Spade Drill Bit

Spade drill bits are routinely used by electricians who do wiring and cabling, especially for drilling holes in wood for conduit runs. But traditional spade bits sometimes vibrate badly and dull after just a few uses. The new IDEAL Power-Spade spade bit helps eliminate these problems to provide an increased level of performance, whether the user is boring through wood, cement board, composite enclosures, or ceiling tile. Sporting a unique full-cone threaded tip, the Power-Spade operates fast, requiring up to 50% less force to achieve faster cuts than other leading competitors’ spade bits. Self-feeding action promotes smoother, vibration-free drilling while the contoured paddle quickly removes chips from the hole, preventing lockup. This contoured paddle also creates a more aggressive cutting blade angle than traditional straight spades, resulting in faster penetration and removal for optimum hole finish. Breakouts are virtually eliminated by the bit’s spur and reamer that perfectly scribes the outside of holes. The bit is available in a range of sizes from 0.5 inch to 1.25 inches.
