An insert enables the flat on the moving jaw to rotate into perfect alignment and full contact with the matching flats of the tool. Standard models include through-hole, high-speed and quick-change.

According to the company, the typical brazed gundrill has a single-point, uncoated carbide tip, which doesn't allow for high-parameter drilling. A solid twist drill is better for high-feed drilling, but curved holes and chip clogging are common setbacks. As an alternative, the DeepTriDrill features one insert and two guide pads oriented in an optimized position on the drill head. The result is tight- tolerance drilling to high circularity and straight- ness with surface finish quality. Tungaloy America Inc., call 888-554-8394 or visit
