Long Reach Drills are suitable for all general purpose drilling where extra reach is required.
They are suitable for drilling:
Wood – All types
Plastic – All types
Metal – Brass, Steel, Aluminium and Stainless Steel at reduced speed using cutting fluid
Long Reach Drills have self centring 135° Split Point for fast penetration and reduced end thrust. They are ideal for cutting harder steel materials and minimise work hardening of the substrate. These drills feature a black finish (also called blue finish).
Long Reach Drillls are not designed to drill deep holes. Maximum hole depth must be less than the flute length (FL) of the drill. Deep hole drilling requires the use of a Bordo Long Series Drill, Bordo Extra Deep Hole Drill or Bordo Auger Bit depending on the material being drilled.
