Reduced Shank Drill Bits

Do you need reduced shank drill bits for your construction project? If you do, FMW Fasteners can supply them. Perhaps you’re not sure if reduced shank drill bits are right for your job. If your construction job requires fastening any pieces together, and most do, you will usually want a power drill or cordless screwdriver to quickly, precisely and easily drive your screws into your workpiece. As you may know, such a drill or screwdriver requires a bit — a piece that engages with the screw to drive it in. In some cases, this bit will be a reduced shank drill bit, such as the ones below:

A drill bit is made up of three basic parts:

  • The tip, which is the part that engages with the screw drive.
  • The shank, which fits into a part of the drill called a chuck, which turns the bit once the power is engaged.
  • The torsion zone, which is the part in between.

Your bit must have the right tip to fit your fastener and the right shank to fit your drill chuck.

A Wide Variety of Shank Drill Bits So You Can Find What You Need

In some cases, the bit you want to use may not fit your drill because the diameter of the bit is too wide for the chuck. In these cases, you want reduced shank drill bits. These are drill bits with a smaller diameter than standard drill bits to accommodate your drill, allowing a tight grip for the torque and accuracy you need.
