Spade Drill Bits

Spade Drill Bits feature a 2-sided, flattened flute rather than a helical pattern and are designed to cut shallow holes. They are also useful for drilling into thin sheets of metal. Because of its unique design, when used properly, the bit won't grab onto the metal. Solid carbide bits are capable of drilling most materials while holding an edge and lasting longer than bits constructed of other materials. However, due to their extreme hardness, they are also brittle and subject to breakage if not held at a constant angle during drilling. AFT offers spade drills from HTC with overall lengths ranging from 1-1/2" to 3" and diameters from 1/8" to 1/2". Contact us with any questions regarding drilling accessories. We're here to help!
