Get the Trickiest Job Done with a Custom Spot Drill

Drilling an ultra-precise hole can be tough. Material behavior, surface irregularities, and drill point geometry can all be factors leading to inaccurate holes, wasted time, and extended jobs that lead to loss of profits and frustrated clients. Luckily there’s a solution to your dilemma. Aronson-Campbell Custom Grinding can make you a custom spot drill to handle the trickiest situation, and you’ll be on your merry way with no more difficulties or messy drill jobs.

What the Tool Does

A spot drill, if used properly, will eliminate the chance of a drill walking, thus helping you ensure a more accurate and polished final product. With this trusty tool in hand, you can create a small divot to correctly locate the center of a drill when initiating a plunge. This tiny initial hole allows you to align the tip of your standard drill perfectly to the spot where the drill hole needs to be made so that your final result is perfectly in place. This is especially helpful when you have an irregular surface facing you. With a spot drill, you can mark the drill holes on the sides of cylinders, or inclined planes, etc., so that your drill is in the right place when you initiate your final plunge.

The Critical Measurement

Because creating that small divot as a guide is the main purpose of this tool, the most important measurement you can give us is the drill point angle. Depending on what drill you’ll be following up with, you can choose between industry standard measurements such as 60°, 82°, 90°, 120°, 135°, and 140°, or else pick something totally custom and weird to suit the unique needs of your job.

We all like to have tools that fulfill multiple functions, but sometimes you just need that tool that does just one thing super well. A spot drill can be your friend for just such situations. If it sounds like something that can help you handle the odd shapes and materials in the workpiece you’ve got in front of you, get in touch with us today!
