Railroad Tie Boring Bits – Single Flute – Single flute tie boring bits are designed explicitly for drilling spike holes in the railway cross ties. Furthermore, the single flute goes in like a screw-like movement, feeding itself into the railway material, while also removing the chipping. With the open flute design, it prevents the chip from packing and also reduces wood burning.
Railroad Tie Boring Bits – Two Flute – Double flute tie boring bits are made just for drilling holes into railway cross ties. The double flute creates ease of penetration with rapid chip removal within the hardwood drilling process.
Railroad Track Bits – The flat beaded track bit was created for heavy-duty portable track repair work in the field and fits various machines. They are available in the single end or a cost-saving double end style. Both of these styles come available in hard nitride coating for longer lasting tool life of 50 to 300 percent, depending on your working conditions.
When drilling within forestry, there are different types of drill bits and methods you can use such as counterbore and countersinking. While countersinking creates a conical cavity that matches the angled shape of the underside of a flathead screw; counterboring creates a flat-bottom cavity. Thus, allowing the head of the screw or bolt to be used with a washer, and it’s a flat underside to rest within the counterbore.
The counterbore tool is a specialized drill bit that creates the hole for the body of the fastener and a larger size cavity for its head, both at the same time. Typically, the fastener chosen is a flat-head bottom screw such as a round head for a pan head screw.

By using a counterbore, the individual has the opportunity for hiding the fastener completely during the joining process. The fastener can be made to either flush with, or below the surface of the work piece in a way that does not mess up the design. When you work with wood, increasing the depth of the counterbore beyond the thickness of the fastener head means there is room for a wooden plug to be fixed in the extra space. This completely conceals the fastener and gives a continuous wood surface.
Wiring Security & Alarms
Steel Drill Bits – These bits often are sold in a drill bit set. These are necessary tools that work for a lot of jobs. When it comes to alarm installation, they are the best types of drill bits when making holes for magnets. They also work well for pilot holes for long drill bits.
Long Drill Bits – Also known as bell hangers, flexible, or flex bits are also a good selection that comes in sizes of 12 inches up to 4, 5, or 6 feet, all of which depends on the size of your house. The most effective diameter will most likely be 3/8 inches since this matches the size of standard hardwire contacts.
Auger Drill Bits – The best bits to use for log homes are going to be Auger drill bits. They provide a long lasting edge design. This bit requires less power from your drill, leaving a smooth hole wall. You can’t do better than this wood auger bit in the industry. The heavier weight can withstand the rigors of the job as well.
Power & Utilities
Wood Pole Bits – These bits are designed to bore holes in any wood quickly and efficiently while maintaining its sharp carbide tip longer than other drill bits in the market. The wood pole bits produce an incredibly smooth hole that leaves little to no residue. Carbide tipped wood auger drill bits require less torque to operate and can be used with electric, air, or gasoline powered drill motors and impact wrenches.
Multi-Purpose Drill Bits – The multi-grind bit features sharp edges that are tough enough for metal and masonry applications. The bit’s robust tungsten carbide ensures no skating, clean holes, and long life in construction materials. Whether you’re a pro or DIY kind of person, the multi-purpose drill bit set can drill in a wide variety of materials, so it saves you time in your drilling process and leaves less of a hassle carrying around a bunch of drill bits with you.
Bell hanger’s Extension Drill Bits – Designed for drilling holes through masonry, concrete block, and electrical. Therefore, wiring can be threaded through these holes for cable; TV, telephone lines, alarm systems, computer networks, and other electrical installations. These drill bits have a hole in the flute, sometimes referred to as a fish eye; for connecting the wire to the drill and then used to pull fish wire, cable, or pipe through the wall.
Bait Station Auger Drill Bit – This Carbide Tipped Auger Bit is used mostly for drilling holes into the ground. These bits do a great job of cutting through any type of soil except for hard pan. The bit varies between 24″ long and 2.75″ wide. This width is ideal for termite stations, and it only needs to go down 10″ to get a hole deep enough.
Treating Rods – These bits are used to drill holes through the floor and wall. Then a side or end opening is created so the treating rod inserted, is past the drilled hole and into the soil or it can negate the area where the pesticides are applied.
Carbide Tipped Hammer Drill Bits – These SDS drill bits have maximum drilling torque that allows them to drill into the ground quicker than other drill bits.
Storm Shutters & Hurricanes
Hurricane Anchor Drill Bits – These bits designs originate from a combination of masonry bits that were made for masonry anchors. Anchor drill bits are used for reliable hurricane shutter installations; which drills holes repeatedly for the hurricane anchor lead shields, as well as, small holes that allow clearance for a screw or bolt to pass through.
Drill Bits for Hard Steel
Carbide Tipped Drill Bits – Carbide tipped drill bits are ideal for locksmiths, auto mechanics, and any other operating drilling into hardened steel. The drill bits can drill out broken bolts, studs, taps, and other drill bits. They also cut hard steel such as safes and bearing races. The carbide is designed to avoid chipping and dissipate the heat. Carbide drill bits are primarily used for hardened steel and don’t work nearly as well on softer materials.
