KANSAS CITY, Mo., March 2, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Spyder® today unveiled its highest-performance drilling accessories yet — the new STINGER™ Mach-Blue™ high-speed steel (HSS) bits for wood and metal drilling, which will be available as a home center exclusive at Lowe’s.
The bits mark the debut of Spyder’s proprietary Mach-Blue™ armor plating, an ultra-hard surface plating that helps retain sharp cutting edges and reduce heat build-up, resulting in faster cuts and exceptionally long life. The Mach-Blue™ plating gives the bits an eye-catching, iridescent blue finish that performs like nothing else on the market.
Beneath the plating, the bits are constructed of heat-treated M-Series tool steel, known for its durability and resistance to breakage. They are optimized for use in wood, steel, mild steel, aluminum, stacked materials and other tough-to-drill alloys.
The new HSS bits join Spyder’s other STINGER™ drilling accessories, which include auger, power and spade bits. The HSS bits are Spyder’s first-ever standard-size drill bits, but there is nothing standard about their performance, said Matt Tyson, Senior Product Manager at Spyder.
“Mach-Blue™ bits are engineered to drill quickly and cleanly over and over,” Tyson said. “They cut cleaner and last significantly longer than other high-quality titanium plated or cobalt bits, even when drilling dense, thick metal.”
STINGER™ Mach-Blue™ HSS bits have been shown to drill up to 100 times more holes than titanium or black oxide drill bits before a replacement is required, and to make holes up to eight times faster than titanium drill bits.
Other features include a self-centering split point design that won’t walk or wander, even on pre-hardened or curved surfaces. The impact-rated 1/4″ speed hex shank allows the bit to be used in quick-change impacting drivers as well as conventional three-jaw chucks in hand drills and drill presses. The high-performance, jobber-length bits are made in the USA.
STINGER™ Mach-Blue™ armor plated HSS drill bits are available in a 10-piece kit with an MSRP of $39.98. The kit includes 1/16″, 5/64″, 3/32″, 1/8″, 5/32″, 3/16″, 7/32″, 1/4″, 5/16″ and 3/8″ bits, and a durable case with rubberized corners. Individual bits in diameters from 1/16″ to 1/2″ are sold separately.
STINGER™ Mach-Blue™ armor plated HSS drill bits and other additions to the STINGER™ line of drilling and wood-boring tools will be available online at Lowes.com and rolling out to Lowe’s stores nationwide this month.
