360° Cutting and Drilling Make Rover Bits an All Around Winner

Combining the “best” qualities of forstner, auger, and spade bits, patented Rover Bits drill vertically and cut horizontally to the 6″ shank. Plus, unlike a forstner bit, Rover bits can be used in hand tools like a drill for amazing free-form drilling versatility. Rover Bits don’t rip up material, leaving a clean, finished flat-bottom hole ready for whatever the application. These bits were made for wood but can also power through plaster, sheet metal, solid surface material and even carbon fiber, an up-and-coming material on everyone’s hot list. That’s what makes the best rover bits you’ll ever own. Please do not use Rover Bits to drill stone or masonry.


Bad Dog Rover Bits do not rip up material, leaving a cleaner hole than the typical bit to save you finish time. That’s what makes them the best rover bits you’ll ever own. Rover Bits work equally as well in soft or hardwood like oak, rosewood, or walnut. But don’t limit the use of your Rover Bits to wood and wood products like composite and particle board! Try them on carbon fiber, solid surface material and sheet aluminum. You’ll find technical details below to help you best use your Rover Bits on each material. Please do NOT use Rover Bits to drill stone or masonry.

Bad Dog Rover Bits are made with a special combination of carbide to resist chipping and breaking so they can even handle the occasional nail! Rover Bits can be used for operations ranging from drilling a simple hole to using its side-cutting capabilities to carve, make free-hand pocket holes, and the signature Quick Mortise™ to install locks in record time with no secondary operations.
