SpeedFeed Bits: Faster Cleaner Drilling
When you are on the job, do you like to do things the easy way, or the hard way? The fast way, or the slow way? Unless you work for the government, you would probably pick the fast and easy way. The new Speed Feed bits from Milwaukee were designed to be both faster and easier to use versus your typical spade bit, and are obviously not meant for government workers. “How much faster?” you ask. Up to 10x faster. I know what you are thinking; A cut that fast must leave a blowout on the backside of the lumber and an ugly hole. According to Milwaukee, the Speed Feed bits were specifically designed to do things faster, but also leave you with a super clean hole.
From what I can gather from the photograph, the Speed Feed bits look like a cross between a Bosch DareDevil bit and a tapered auger bit. I know the Bosch bits work great and leave a clean hole, so if that is any indication, we are probably looking at a winner.
Milwaukee Speed Feed bits will be available in 6” lengths, ranging in sizes from 1/2” - 1-1/4”. They will also sell in 3 piece, 4 piece, and 6 piece sets. No word on pricing or when they will hit stores.
