Spade Drills

Are you looking for a much faster way to produce large diameter holes or special contours? Spade drills offer some distinct advantages over twist drills.

  • Runs at higher speeds and feed rates without tool breakage.
  • Drills in one-pass. A chip curl is ground along the cutting edges to break the chips as they form. Chip breaker grooves direct the small, narrow metal chips out of the hole so you can complete the hole in one pass. The efficient removal of chips also keeps the spade drill more rigid, improving drill performance and precision.
  • Lasts longer. The cutting angles provide greater support of the cutting edges so tools last longer. And all Muskegon Tool spades can be reground to extend their life making them a cost-efficient tooling option.
