This step drill is designed to drill holes and recesses to snugly fit the specialized screws and handle fasteners used in the knife and gun-making industry. It will also work for many other applications where you are recessing appropriately sized screws. These are made from high-quality HSS bits. Each one is turned to our rigid specifications and is very precise. They feature a brad-point tip to center the entry point on your material (essential to accurate hole placement). We do not recommend using this model on steel or metal as they are designed for handle materials and composites, such as wood, bone, carbon fiber, phenolic resin-based materials, and more. They also work well for many other specialty precision uses, such as modeling, woodworking, and crafts.
This model is designed for setting Loveless-style fasteners (shown in the image) or any fastener featuring a 0.165 inch pilot diameter and a 0.312 inch head diameter, or less.
