Drill holes of many different sizes using a bit from one of our step drill bit sets. Invented in 1973 to be the most versatile of power tool accessories, these bits are favored by anyone who wants to save time switching out drill bits and exercise precise control over the holes they drill.
Unlike most drill bit sets, which are designed to bore holes of specific widths, each bit in a step drill bit set is a metal cone with many sharp steps carved into its surface. The deeper the bit goes into the material, the wider the resulting hole, allowing you to make large and small holes without changing drill bits. This saves time installing fixtures, when different fixtures require differently sized holes to be drilled all at once.
A titanium step drill bit is also a good choice when doing electrical work. The bit allows you to drill through sheet metal with ease, making it perfect for junction boxes and more. Rather than carrying around an entire set of standard twist bits or a complete auger drill bit set. Carry a step down drill bit set in your pocket and get the job done in a fraction of the time.
When cleaning up pre-drilled holes, a step drill bit set is a great help. The short length of each step makes these bits supremely maneuverable, allowing you to remove burrs quickly from plastic and sheet metal. Because of their maneuverability, step down drill bits are also more likely to drill clean holes to begin with, reducing the amount of time you'll spend filing.
The more you use your power drill, the more different sizes and types of bits you'll need. By investing in a good step drill bit set. However, you can eliminate many of the bits cluttering your tool box and achieve better results overall.
