IRWIN®, the leader in hand tools and power tool accessories, announced today the launch of SPEEDBOR SUPREME™ self-feed bits and auger bits. The new line of SPEEDBOR SUPREME™ bits are engineered for high performance wood drilling and are designed to withstand repeated nail strikes. The bits’ high-speed steel cutting edge maintain sharpness due to the durable bi-metal construction.
The SPEEDBOR SUPREME™ self-feed bits and auger bits provide users with 3X longer life* and durability on the jobsite, even cutting through nail embedded wood.
IRWIN SPEEDBOR SUPREME™ self-feed bits and auger bits are sold in a variety of lengths and diameters, allowing users to tackle challenging wood-drilling needs with ease. The bits are made to deliver fast, high performing drilling by cutting through both clean and nail embedded wood and feature a re-sharpenable cutting edge, aggressive screw tip and black oxide coating for enhanced corrosion resistance.
“Professionals know that durability is crucial on the jobsite, “said Harry Zhong, Senior Product Manager at Stanley Black & Decker. “IRWIN is committed to providing our valued users with accessory solutions that are designed to stand up to the toughest challenges every time they are put to use.”
