auger bit - side and front view
Auger Bits are designed for boring holes in wood. They are available in several styles for various applications.

The six common design characteristics of an auger bit are:
  • Screw Point
    The screw point is at the tip of the bit and it provides hole location and self feeds the bit into wood.
  • Outlining Spur
    The outlining spur cuts the outline of the hole and helps the bit stay straight in the hole.
  • Cutting Edges
    The cutting edges act like a horizontal cutter and chip out wood in the hole.
  • Side Lip Cutter
    The side lip cutters act like vertical cutters and shave the sides of the hole.
  • Flute
    The flute or twist ejects the wood chips away from the cutter.
  • Shank
    The shank may be taper square, hexagon, or round depending upon what use it was designed for.
AUGER BITS
Auger Bits - Solid Center
Solid Center Auger Bits are designed for use in a hand bit brace and may be used for all general purpose boring in soft or hard woods. Polished finish, single flute design with double cutters, two outlining spurs, and a self feeding medium fast pitch screw point.
Auger Bits - Two Flute - Replaceable Screw Point
Two Flute Carbide Tipped Auger Bits are designed with a heavy duty milled flute design and a replaceable screw point to allow it to drill faster than conventional auger bits. Flutes are surface treated for corrosion resistance and fully heat treated to accept high torque load and guard against bit bending when using impact drills. They will drill precise holes in the hardest wood, creosoted poles, chipboard, and plywood.
