T-A®    360 Icon
The T-A spade drill is an excellent choice for general purpose drilling. The design provides fast penetration rates that produce good hole size and finish. Standard geometry combines highly efficient and stable cutting action to minimize power consumption. Recommended for use in most steels including 4150, cast irons, high-temperature alloys and aluminum alloys.
