The precision bodies have an improved pocket design and innovative clamping system that provide stable performance after multiple tip indexes. These drill bodies also feature twisted coolant holes, polished flutes, and a PVD-coating that allows smooth chip evacuation and prolonged body life. Each body accepts a range of tips that covers .040” (1mm).

DRILL BODY COMPARISON: GOLD TWIST VS. QWIK TWIST
The new Gold Twist pocket design’s contact/clamping area is three times deeper than our current Qwik Twist drill. The accuracy of the added cylinder to the clamping area improves rigidity and helps reduce internal stresses. The two precision ground positive stop locations improve the drilling tips’ position and support.
