Milwaukee Tool Red Helix Cobalt Drill Bits

Milwaukee Tool has introduced the next generation of its Red Helix Cobalt Drill Bits. Engineered for durability and longer life in hard metal applications, these new bits provide up to 15 times the longevity of black oxide drill bits, the company says. Much like their predecessors, the next generation of Red Helix Cobalt Drill Bits are designed with a Variable Helix that includes a 35° helix angle that varies along the flute, ending at 15° to limit heat build-up. New to this next generation of the drill bits are two things: a Quad Edge Tip and Enhanced Tapered Web. The Quad Edge Tip is designed to decrease heat buildup and enable users to drill faster. A 135° split point tip is said to deliver a precision start and prevent walking for faster, more accurate holes in hard metal, PVC and wood. Red Helix Cobalt Drill Bits are available in sizes ranging from 1/16″ to 1/2″, as well as in sets of 15, 23, and 29 pieces.
