NOTES: Many auger bits actually cut +/- .030 oversize…in part so the balance of the shaft/flites aren’t overheating with the friction of rubbing on the sides of the hole and part due to many woods appear to ‘swell’ a bit upon drilling. In effect, making the hole close to call size. Thus, it’s best to have a couple of brands of drill bits available as bits with the same call size…e.g. 1″, may not cut exactly the same.
NOTE: Not available in tapered… order the 12″ and trim to length…works pretty well as the 12″ taper are only tapered over 11″.
