The 14 Gauge SMART-BIT is a powerful, nifty, combination tool that simply and easily pre-drills and countersinks 14 gauge batten screws for use with hardwood, softwood and composite board, fixing into timber joists (preferbly softwood).
The bigger brother to the #7, #8, #10 and #12 in the range, the #14 is often used to pre-drill and countersink through hardwood timber such as Merbau. Through an easy, one step drilling motion, the specially designed Powerbolic bit fluting cuts through the timber quickly and efficiently. The end result - a neat countersink free of chipped, furry edges with a uniform depth everytime.
Any dril bits that need replacing can be easily swapped out via the grub screw and the supplied allen key.
These are very popular amongst our customers who range from carpenters, builders, decking contracts and DIYers and we highly recommend them for anyone considering building a deck or boardwalk with 14 gauge bugle batten screws.
