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.

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.

Its all in the Technique

From the chip-resistant carbide edge to the slim 6″ shank for better maneuverability and greater depth of cut, Rover Bits were made for working with wood, plastic, carbon fiber and even more!
ROUND HOLES (A)
Use like a traditional wood bit at any speed up to 2,500 RPM. Where there is a possibility of hitting a nail, increase drilling speed to 2,500 RPM.
QUICK MORTISE (B)
Install lock sets in record time with no secondary operations. Simply drill a series of overlapping holes to desired width and connect by side cutting with Rover Bits. Drill at any speed. Drill side-cuts at 2,000 RPM.
POCKET HOLES (C) & (D)
The strongest kind of screw joint. Use for building furniture, railing, and other wood projects. Also great for keyholes.
CARVING (E)
Use Rover Bits for rough wood carving or to hog out material for inserts.
ROVING (F)
Cut through material at seemingly impossible angles. Makes running wires or piping a snap. Use Rover Bits to make grooves for installation of wiring under flooring.
