Product Description

Size: 1/2-by-18-Inch

Product Description

The Milwaukee 1/2 In. x 18 In. Ship auger bit drills through up to 2X the nails of competitive auger bits without needing resharpening. Drill into clean or nail-embedded wood with confidence when installing Romex wire, PEX water lines, rebar, bolts, and rope in piers, playground equipment and landscaping. The flutes are wider for maximum chip removal, even in deep holes. The polished and coated flute finish means chips wont stick to the bit, even when drilling in material that contains sap or glue. The through-center cutting design creates a more solid striking point against nails compared to the competitions ahead-of-center and behind-center designs. The longer shaft length makes it easy to drill deeper or overhead without an extension.

From the Manufacturer

Milwaukee ship auger bits have a new through center cutting design for improved life in nail-embedded wood. The flutes are coated, which produces a non-stick surface for fast and smooth chip ejection, especially in deep holes. The shanks are also impact rated for added durability and versatility no matter the trade. Ideal for electricians, plumbers, utilities and any trade requiring fast hole drilling in clean or nail-embedded wood. Induction Hardened Tip for Added Nail Durability. Coated Flutes for Fast Chip Removal. Impact Rated Shank

I used to order these for my company as I had thought they were of a good quality and had good customer support, that and they were the only 1-1/2" bits I could find. But after having four of them in a row shear at the drive end after a week of use I was sure that they had either got a bad steel shipment or had cheaper out. Which wouldn't be so bad if milwalkie was at all interested in fixing a potential problem with there manufacturing.

Long story short save yourself time and money buy the more expensive wood owls or Lenox bits

I will not be buying one of these again

I ordered the milwaukee 7/8by 18 ship auger bit,very will finished,nice polish on it,but it didn,t size at 7/8,it was stamped right on the bit,and the tube it came in,but it was 13/16.I kept it and ordered a dewalt 7/8 bit,it was smaller than 7/8,but bigger than 13/16,and i sent it back.the bit was not stamped dewalt,just 7/8,check your bits after you get them so you will get what you want. I bought wood owl,no problem very good bits,made in japan excellent bits.amazon had fast shipping

This bit is perfect for anyone needing to drill large holes through a few inches of wood repeatedly. Eats through nails like butter and requires little force by the user as the bit pulls itself through the material with ease. Does require a very strong drill though and I use the Milwaukee Super Hawg.

These things are hopeless! The Chinese don't even bother to sharpen off the paint on the edges. The steel is soft. They are easy to sharpen with a file - as long as you do it frequently. This design has no spurs - just a single dull cutting edge. They will bore a hole but not cleanly.

This auger bit is nice and beefy. Note that the shank is 7/16, not 3/8, and these larger auger bits require a pretty beefy drill as the self-feed function really works-whether your drill is ready or not. The bit is not exactly as pictured.
