DRILL BITS

We usually have over 1500 single spiral ("Irwin" style) and double spiral ("Jennings" style) bits in stock at any time. We get our bits from various sources. When they arrive in the shop, they are sorted and as many as half will be culled before they are stored.

Rust is the biggest problem when it comes time to recondition an auger bit. They are generally soaked in a chelating agent (Evapo Rust) or run through an electrolysis bath in the first stage of restoration. After this, they are cleaned with a buffing wheel before going on to sharpening and dipping the tangs in our special paint.

Double Spiral No. 12 (3/4 inch) bit

Each bit is checked for quality and tested several times during the restoration process. Bits are wrapped similar to the originals, but this is not done until just prior to shipment in order to maintain quality control. It's impossible to make many of these bits look as they did when new, but we try to make each one look as good as possible and function as well as they day it was made.

SETS: Bits can be bought individually or in sets. Postage is factored into the price of all our products, so obviously we can offer a lower deal for a set of bits. A "set" is considered six or more bits in any combination of styles and sizes.

We also offer prepacked sets. For single spiral bits, these are based on a sticker published by the Irwin Bit Company. Double spiral bits are offered as a "full" thirteen piece set. Remember however, any six bits will be priced as a "set".

PRICES: "Single bits", that is any number from one to five, are $16 apiece. Sets, groups of six or more, are $9 apiece.

SCREW DRIVER BITS: Some of the sets mentioned above will come with screw driver bits, but they will also be offered indiviually or as part of a six or more set. Screw driver bits are considered bits for pricing purposes, and are offered by size, so see their shopping cart for specific information.

TWIST DRILLS: Yes, you can drill metal with a hand brace! We do have a number of twist drills on hand. They are priced the same as auger bits, but can only be offered 'stock on hand'. It's a good idea to contact us if you are interested in purchasing twist drills.

SPECIALTY BITS: At any time we acquire bits other than auger bits. They might include spoon, gimlet or brad point bits. These are prepared and offered up individually, but feel free to contact us if you are looking for a particular type or size of bit.

COLLECTOR BITS: This is a catch all category that includes rare and/or unique bits that may or may not serve a function. We come across these frequently in our searches. These bits are priced indivually and sold "as is" to collectors. Note that this category includes No. 3 (3/16 in) auger bits. We usually have several single and double spiral versions of these on hand. If you are a collector looking for something to round out a set, please contact us.
