This in an excellent kit for on-site installation work. It contains a useful assortment of drill bits, countersinks, stop collars and plug cutters in a variety of sizes. It is supplied in a custom black-and-yellow T-Loc mini Systainer case with two French-fitted trays made of firm closed-cell EVA foam. Each tray has a contrasting inner layer to let you see at a glance if anything is missing. The kit includes:
- 5 Imperial HSS brad-point bits: 1/8", 3/16", 1/4", 5/16" and 3/8"
- 5 metric HSS brad-point bits: 4mm, 5mm, 6mm, 8mm and 10mm
- 5 tapered HSS bits and 5 matching countersinks for screw sizes #6, #8, #10, #12 and #14
- 2 Veritas Tapered Snug-Plug Cutters: 3/8" and 1/2"
- 2 stop collars: 3/8" for #6 & #8 bits and 1/2" for #10, #12 and #14 bits
- 2 hinged nylon storage boxes (for your own stuff!)
The brad-point drills have polished flutes for superior chip clearance and sharply defined lips to score the hole perimeter for clean entry and smooth sidewalls. Made from high-speed steel, they are not subject to burning and stay sharp longer than carbon-steel bits. A selection of common metric sizes is included for use on 32mm system cabinetry and with metric fasteners.
The tapered HSS bits match the shapes of wood screws so that screw threads grip for their entire length. Used in combination with the hardened countersink/counterbore cutters and the stop collars, they let you set the bit for flush countersinking to a full 1/2" of counterbore.
Our patented Snug-Plug cutters make smooth-sided, slightly tapered plugs. The first 1/8" of the plug is the stated size, and the rest flares out at a 3° included angle to ensure a perfect fit. Sizes included will plug the counterbores made by the tapered bit sets.
Two 3 1/4" × 1 7/32" × 7/16" hinged nylon boxes provide storage space for small items such as fasteners or driver bits.
Drills, countersinks, cutters and boxes are made in USA, Canada and France; Systainer case made in Germany.
The full price of the components if ordered individually is $325. An excellent value in a useful kit.
