Bosch 16mm Flat Bit
This Bosch 16mm flat bit (part number 2-608-587-573) has an excellent price/performance ratio, making it a cost-effective alternative to an auger bit. It is ideal for drilling holes in softwood, hardwood, plasterboard, and other light building materials.
This spade drill bit is part of the Bosch “Self-Cut” range. It features a self-feeding threaded tip, which enables the bit to pull itself through the workpiece. This reduces the amount of effort required from the user, whilst also making drilling cleaner, more accurate, and quicker. In fact, these bits are FIVE times faster than standard flat wood bits!
It also features precision-ground tip and cutting edges to improve drilling accuracy and stability, as well as a specially shaped spade that enables fast chip removal.
