6 Piece Bushcraft Survival Auger Kit with T-Handle and 5 Auger Bits in Tool Roll
This 6 piece Bushcraft auger bit set by Woodowl is designed to effortlessly bore holes in wood when off the grid. This set allows you to bore the perfect size hole needed for any situation. The perfect size hole can be made for lashings, hooks, dowel pegs, camp furniture, cooking systems, rocket stoves, shelters, traps, mallets, sawhorses, tapping trees for sap and wasting away material when making bowls and cups. Deep holes can be even be drilled in logs to extract dry wood for starting fires. The kit is easily to transport and weights just 2.3 pounds.
The set includes the following items:
The 1” diameter x 8” long hardwood T-handle is fitted with a solid brass hex adapter that accepts both 1/4” and 5/16” hex shanks, the most common sizes found on auger bits. Bits can be easily changed by loosening and tightening the 9/16" stainless steel knurled knob. The T-handle provides sufficient leverage for turning bits up to 1-1/2” in diameter.
The set includes the following auger bit sizes: 3/8",1/2”, 5/8”, 3/4” and 1”. These auger bits are made in Japan by Woodowl and are the finest auger bits available anywhere. See our auger bits review HERE. These bits are classified as Combination Spurred Ship Auger Bits due to the single flute, single cutting head and single spur (the outer cutting edge that scores the outside of the hole). They will cut very cleanly because the spur scores the outside perimeter of the hole before the cutter head clears material from the hole. These bits cut very fast due to the single flute design which provides excellent chip evacuation. They come hand sharpened from the factory which enhances cutting speed. These bits are not cast or forged but milled and ground from solid round blanks of steel. This machining process produces bits that are perfectly concentric with very little wobble. They will drill accurate diameter holes and require less energy to power through both wet and dry wood. The sharp lead screws are precision ground and machined allowing these bits to start immediately into wood once the drill starts to turn. The lead screw then pulls the bit straight and true through all types of wood with minimal wandering. These bits are made from high-carbon S55C steel specially designed for WoodOwl bits. The cutting heads are fully induction hardened to 58 HRC. The flutes have a phosphate coating (Parkerizing) to eliminate clogging, facilitate chip ejection and to protect from corrosion. These bits can be resharpened using any auger sharpening file.
