Featuring a dual-flute design delivering up to 2X faster whole times, up to 4X longer life and up to 50% more holes per battery charge than the competition. Ideal for drilling large and small-diameter holes in steel and plastic. The Rapid Strike tip allows for fast, accurate starts that generate less heat, resulting in longer bit tip life. Black oxide coating also enhances durability, whole quality and bit life. For user convenience and accuracy, each bit has laser-engraved reference marks you can see while drilling.

Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very fine step-drill! Works really good. A good homeowner cordless drill can spin it without jamming. Cuts mild steel (such as breaker-box metal) easily. Aimed at conduit sizes. Far quicker than the old screw-punch. For-sure better than lower-price step-drills. It claims "2-hole". It is clearly marked and spaced to do two common conduit sizes. However it has about 16 steps, and you can stop within about 1/16th inch of any odd-size hole you need from about 3/8" to 1-1/8". In this price class, it really should come-with some form of storage so it won't go blunt in your toolbox. The packaging could have been a fine storage pouch, but isn't. Find a pill-bottle or something. March 18, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Impressive Stepped Drill Bit This singe drill bit is capable of gradually opening holes starting at 3/16' to 1-1/8" even though the name suggests a smaller specific range. The tip of the bit is elongated to start the hole at ~3/16". It was effortless to go from that to larger hole sizes in 1/16" increments. There are a lot of positive attributes: It was designed for cordless drills. It has two cutting surfaces that make the bit work efficiently. The bit shaft has flat spots in a triangular orientation to allow the drill chuck to secure the bit tightly. It has the 7/8" and 1-1/8" dimensions marked clearly. It has a nice black finish to it. It is marked USA on the collar. For the test, it cut through PVC pipe easily. Reaming out the desired hole size was easy to do. March 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great tool The step bit is a great tool. Fits on a drill chuck as small as 3/8" which easily adapts to my battery drill. Sure it's expensive but, I only have one bit to carry around! Cuts clean and precise. Would recommend to a friend. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Making holes in metal surfaces made supereasy Unlike other drill bits that makes you stop and go through multiple steps in making holes in metallic surfaces, This drill bit allows you to do the job in one go. It is well made and easy to use. I have included a video of making a hole in a 1/4" wall bracket. As you can see it allowed me to do that in one go. Made in USA. Nice bit to have April 9, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by High Quality Tool I work occasionally with thin materials, including sheet metal, Lexan and glass-reinforced plastics. This tool is great for drilling in these materials and reaming holes in previously drilled materials of this type. It does not grab or bind like a saw or twist drill. It is great to be able to buy a tool like this that is made in the USA, a factor in buying decisions I make. I have had great experience with Milwaukee brand tool durability and expect that this tool will not be an exception. March 12, 2014
