The Best Design In Spade Bits: Whether you're trying to drive, drill, punch or knock out holes, you've always known the name Greenlee is synonymous with homemaking. That's because
Greenlee consistently listens to the customer in order to bring new innovative hole-making products to market that are designed to make your job faster, safer, and easier.
Now, Greenlee's developed the latest in spade bit technology. With these new Self-Feeding Spade Bits, it's that much easier to get through the entire thickness of the wood. This design requires considerably less force to accomplish the hole, which reduces operator fatigue and increases user comfort. Less Force Means Less Vibration!
When you're drilling with standard spade bits, you're likely accustomed to substantial vibration and jerking due to the force needed to leverage the spade bit through the wood. Not a problem with the new Greenlee Self-Feeding Spade Bit. You don't need to use the same amount of force and that means less vibration and jerkiness and less torque on your hand or wrist.
Threaded/Toothed Design Delivers: While some bits claim to be self-threading, only the tip of the bit may actually be threaded. So as soon as the tip breaks through the back of the wood, all the pulling/threading power is lost. But this isn't the case with the new Greenlee Self-Feeding Spade Bit. With its threaded/toothed design, once the bit's teeth grab the wood, the bit pulls its way all the way through. Drilling in tight or awkward positions just got a whole lot easier.
Easily Enlarges Existing Holes: None of the current spade bits on the market today allow for the enlargement of existing holes. Once a hole has been made, it's extremely difficult to enlarge the hole. However, the new Self-Feeding Spade Bit's tapered head design allows you to easily start the head of the next size bit in the existing hole and drill the hole out to the new size. Problem solved.
