Irwin Step Individual Bits
Every IRWIN® step drill bit produces several different hole sizes, so you don't have to change bits for every cut. This saves time when you need to drill multiple holes of various sizes in a single project or enlarge a pre-existing hole. While Irwin standard twist individual bits can produce similar results, these specialized accessories help you maintain control over thin and flexible materials while you work.
There are several different types of Irwin step drill bits, including ones that can cut through thin metal, wood, plexiglass and laminate. General purpose Irwin step drill bits may provide the best value when you need to work with sheet metal and flexible plastic. Many of them have SpeedPoint™ tips that keep their points centered over your target, so nothing moves when you add pressure. These bits often feature single flutes that run straight up the side to prevent any loss of control during the process.
If you work with heavier materials, you may prefer Irwin step drill bits for metal. They have many of the same features as the ones you might use for thin stock, including the straight flutes and SpeedPoint tips, but they're made of stronger materials. This gives them the same level of durability you might find with the Irwin countersink drill bits you use with metal or the durable auger and spade individual bits, and they withstand high levels of heat without bending. Irwin step drill bits have engraved markers on their sides to show you the precise measurements at each step, so you know how wide the hole is at every depth.
Whether you're drilling into metal or a flexible alternative material, especially when you need to produce several different hole sizes on a single project, there are plenty of reasons to use Irwin step drill bits. Find the ideal bit for your next job right here.
