Ideal Industries Power-Spade drill bit
By Alyssa Dalton
May 22, 2012 – Ideal Industries claims its new Power-Spade spade bit helps eliminate problems to provide an increased level of performance, whether the user is boring through wood, cement board, composite enclosures or ceiling tile. The Power-Spade sports a full-cone threaded tip and self-feeding action to promote smoother, vibration-free drilling while the contoured paddle helps remove chips from the hole. The bit comes in a size range of 1/2″ to 1-1/4″, including standard shank bits and “stubby” short shank models (3/4″, 7/8″, 1″) that permit access in tight areas such as between studs or inside cabinets where standard length spades will not fit.
