Irwin Tools, a leading manufacturer and distributor of hand tools and power tool accessories, has expanded its existing wood drilling range.

The Irwin brand continues to innovate with the introduction of long- and short-length bits to its current Blue Groove 6X wood boring range.

Until now, Blue Groove 6X bits were only available in 6in length. To provide increased functionality, Irwin has added 4in and 16in Blue Groove 6X short-and long-length bits. Unlike spade bits that have spurs to scribe holes when cutting, Irwin Blue Groove 6X bits have a tapered three-flute design for faster chip ejection and less binding.

The new wood boring bits deliver the same performance and reliability associated with Irwin’s existing Blue Groove 6X bits, but with added functionality. The 16in gives extended reach and the 4in is excellent for tight work between joists – the 16in has the addition of a flute hole for wire pulling, providing tradesmen with additional options to get jobs done.

Irwin Blue Groove 6X RRP is from £7.69 to £57.17 depending on the specification
