About Wood Drilling Bits
Wood drill bits are essential tools for any woodworking project. They can be used to create holes in hardwood, softwood, and even composite materials. Depending on the type of wood you are drilling into, the type of bit you need will vary.
Types of Wood Drilling Bits
The most common types of wood drill bits are brad point bits, spade bits, Forstner bits, and auger bits. Brad point bits are great for making clean holes in both softwoods and hardwoods. Spade bits are great for quickly drilling large diameter holes in woods like pine and fir. Forstner Bits provide a smooth finish when cutting through hardwoods like maple or oak. Auger Bits provide maximum torque when drilling through dense woods such as cherry or walnut.
Materials used for Wood Drilling Bits
Wood drill bits can be made from a variety of materials including high speed steel (HSS), cobalt steel (Cobalt M42), titanium nitride (TiN), carbide tipped (CT) and diamond coated (DC). HSS is the most commonly used material as it is strong yet flexible enough to withstand the rigors of woodworking projects. Cobalt M42 is an excellent choice for drilling into harder woods like oak due to its superior strength and heat resistance.
