Certain drilling jobs demand precision that standard twist bits can't provide. Brad point bits help prevent chip-out on wood and finished surfaces.

We offer premium brad point bits with twin grooved flutes. This ingenious feature improves guidance, clears wood from the hole more efficiently, and prevents burn marks.

Durable machined alloy tool steel, and are available in fractional and metric sets of 7.

Excellent set

As expected, those bits are really precise and did the job without any chip-out.
However, I broke the littlest one in my guitar making a hole from the electronics cavity to the bridge, but I think I was not using it as gently as I should have. So be careful with that one!

Best ever, of all time

I have been modifying guitars for over 15 years, not until this year have I begun the process of building a guitar. After testing out the current hardware store bits on extra maple and swamp ash laying around and seeing all the chips, fuzzy edges and ugly holes I decided to grab a set of the fractional bits and I couldn't be happier. So far, I've tested them out on my scrap wood and the holes came out clean with minimal fuzzies on the exit hole, but it's not a big deal at all. Best drill bits ever, of all time.

Works Well

This set of drills has been invaluable for producing neat holes without chipping and preserving the finish when drilling prefinished bodies for pick guards etc.

Stew Mac does everything better

Why is it that everything i get from Stew Mac works so much better than its hardware-store-variety counterpart? I've used these to drill new Tune-o-Matic bridge posts, piezo cable holes in acoustic bridges, Pot holes on the face of a resonator, strap button pilot holes.. and they just work better than any other drill bits I've owned (which is a LOT). When it comes to tools, even ones available at local hardware stores in Sydney, I just wouldn't use anything but Stew Mac.

great set

I looked all over for a set like this in the big box stores. If anyone is into building guitars you need a good set of brad point bits
