|GENERAL PURPOSE TREATED: The Black-Oxide treatment increases abrasion resistance, allows for increased chip flow, and helps eliminate chip welding. Used for drilling cast iron and carbon steels.|
|HEAVY DUTY TREATED: Designed for drilling cotter pin holes and steering knules, it is also recommended for drilling high tensile strength steel. The heavy-duty drill is furnished with a 135° Split Point except in sizes smaller than 1/16th in fractional sizes and 52 in wire gauge sizes. The self-centering split-point helps eliminate walking at the drill point to provide more accurate drilling. The Black-Oxide treatment increases abrasion resistance, allows for increased chip flow, and helps eliminate chip welding.|
