SERIES C CARBIDE COMMON 1/8 in.SHANK
This series of drill bits designed for drilling FR-4 circuit board materials feature common 1/8th in. shanks. The drill element is fabricated of solid carbide and the shanks are stainless steel. Carbide is the preferred material for drilling glass epoxy circuit board laminates due to its exceptional hardness. Unlike high speed steel bits which become dull quickly, these carbide bits are capable of several hundred or even thousands of hits before significant degradation of sharpness*. Designed for high speed equipment operating up to 80,000 RPM, these drills can also be used at lower speeds by using a slower feed rate. Due to the brittleness of carbide these drills are recommended for drill press use or use with precision equipment. Care must be taken not to drop or flex them as breakage may occur. Use these bits to make your own printed circuits or modify SURFBOARDS surface mount breadboards or other types of boards.
