Masonry Drill Bit Set
Carl Kammerling International’s C.K brand has expanded its range of colour coded products with the Masonry Colour Drill Bit Set of 9 (T3113). The firm says that it can be difficult to select the right drill bit for the right screw, however colour coding not only makes identification and size selection easier but also saves valuable time on each job.
Designed for rotary and percussion drills, the set features the most frequently used drill bit sizes, all easily identified by their colour coding. In addition, the bits are tungsten carbide tipped, providing speed, performance and endurance, to complete any job quickly and effectively.
