What are Augers Used For? 

Augers are one of the most popular types of drill bits used to drill precise holes in wood. Wood auger bits have a sharp point at the tip that helps to ensure precise drilling. Most auger drill bits also have a screw-shaped head that makes them easier to drill.

Auger drill attachments come in a variety of shapes and range in diameter. Since augers are longer than many other types of drill bits, they offer a great solution for drilling long or deep holes.

What are the Benefits of Auger Drill Bits? 

Auger bits can be useful for a variety of projects that require making clean holes in wood. Many wood auger bits and auger bit extensions have guide screws on their tips that help to draw the bits into wood with much less force. Auger drill attachments help to provide the following results. 

  • Accurate drill depth: Augers can drill deep with minimal effort, making them a suitable option for many woodworking and construction-based projects. 
  • Uniform holes: Because of the sharp edges featured on an auger's bit tip, holes end up smooth and uniform all the way through.
  • Ease of drilling: The unique construction of auger tool attachments allows the bit to work its way through the workpiece with minimal effort from the operator. 
  • Minimal shavings: Because of its wide, deep flighting, an auger drill bit reduces shavings and prevents boreholes from becoming clogged. 

What to Look for When Shopping for Auger Drill Bits 

Aside from length and shank diameter, there are additional factors to consider when choosing the right auger bit for your project. Made for different purposes, some wood auger bits come with various features, such as: 

  • Wider flutes that ensure chips won't stick to the bit, even when boring into a material that contains glue or sap. 
  • Aggressive screw pitches for faster drilling through the thickest materials. 
  • Flex construction that works both horizontally and vertically for harder-to-reach areas. 
  • Self-feeding tips that deliver effortless, smooth drilling into wood. 
  • Dual-cutting edges for precise hole drilling in nail-embedded wood. 
  • Solid, carbon steel construction that provides extra rigidity when boring. 
  • Single-spur cutting edges for a smoother finish. 

When the project calls for extra torque and precision, get the right auger drill attachment to make the job seamless.
