Spade Drill Bits
A spade drill bit is a special kind of drill bit used for drilling wide holes into wood at a high rpm. Typically, these holes are needed for cables or pipes. A spade drill bit is also referred to as a flat wood drill bit. Since these drill bits require a high rpm, you will always need to use them with an electric drill. If you want to drill deep holes, for instance when drilling through a hollow wall, you can opt for an extension piece.
Wovar offers individual spade drill bits as well as spade bit sets. Our drill bit sets have the same high quality as the individual spade bits. These flat bits are best suited for drilling into softwood, such as pine. For drilling holes in hardwood, we recommend using hardwood drill bits or auger drill bits. For drilling small holes in softwood, pick our wood drill bits.
