Dewalt just announced new titanium nitride-coated Impact Ready step drill bits. The beauty of step drill bits is that they can go from no-hole to large-hole very quickly as there’s no need to swap between 2, 3, or even more intermediate drill bit sizes. And the beauty of impact drivers are their small size and inherent ability to deliver high reactionless torque.
These step drill bits are optimized for use with cordless impact drivers, but they can also be used with any rotary drills or drivers that can accommodate 1/4″ hex shafts.
- split point starts drilling on contact
- spiral flutes for faster drilling

- said to be 40% faster than other models

Dewalt designed the new step drill bit for professionals – carpenters, glaziers, electricians, and HVAC pros – and anyone else needing to drill 1/8″ to 1-1/8″ burr-free holes in sheet metal materials.
These new bits will be available starting in July 2012.
