FOCUS on cutters and drill bits: DART and Draper Tools

Torque's latest tool round-up includes premium cobalt holesaws from DART and cobalt drill bits from Draper Tools...


The Premium Cobalt Holesaw is the flagship product of DART Tool Group, which supplies a huge range of quality power tool accessories. The variable pitch and precision-set teeth allow for aggressive material penetration and swarf clearance, with enhanced heat and wear resistance so the holesaw can be used on the toughest of material – including steel, cast iron, aluminium, brass, wood and plastic.

DART says the Cobalt Holesaw has a track record of durability and performance – cited as ‘outlasting other leading brands by up to three times’. It guarantees a long life and exceptional ability to cut a range of materials.

Although regular holesaws may do the job, cutting thicker materials, such as steel, can cause the tool to become hot, which quickly increases the wear on the cutting surface and product life will be significantly reduced. The 8% Cobalt of DART’s Premium Holesaw avoids this very effectively, as the added cobalt absorbs and distributes the heat, extending the product life considerably.

The comprehensive DART holesaw range has one of the largest choices of sizes in the industry – starting at 14mm and going up to as large as 210mm. There are a total of 65 different holesaw sizes to cater for every hole-cutting requirement.

DART concludes: “The DART promise is quality, but the twist is that you can be guaranteed a quality product at a much more affordable price than other leading brands. This coupled with a sale or return policy on all DART products, next day delivery and outstanding customer service – it’s an easy decision to make for any tool distributor – you can be sure you are dealing with a company which is a ‘cut above the rest’.”


The Draper Expert range includes a variety of metric HSS cobalt drill bits in assorted sizes. The addition of 5% cobalt to the HSS drills reduces wear and increases the overall strength and longevity of the cutting edge, making them ideal for professional trade use. The cobalt also enhances heat-resistance, which makes them well-suited to drilling through tough materials and metals such as stainless steel.

Part of the high-quality Draper Expert range, the HSS Cobalt Drill Bits are available on a sturdy, heavy-duty 130-piece merchandiser, designed to
encourage point of sale purchasing. Find out more and see Draper Tools’ comprehensive collection of drill bits and drill accessories at
