Auger wood bits are made from high-quality tool steel. Thanks to the self-centering screw point, auger bits move quickly and stably through the wood. Thanks to the non-axis spiral, the chips are discharged even faster than with the traditional spiral. Suitable for drilling deeper holes in soft wood.

To countersink the screw head, or to align it exactly with the surface, is a countersink. HSS ground countersinks are made from high-quality high-speed steel. Completely sharpening during the production process creates a very sharp countersink with high precision. As a result, the drills in combination with cutting oil have a very long service life. The countersink is galvanized and deburred in just one operation.
