Mach-Blue Plating Strengthens Spyder Driver Bits
Whether you’re a Pro or a DIYer, you want your tools to last as long as possible. On the other hand, you expect to replace consumable accessories. With Spyder Mach-Blue driver bits, Spyder promises to lessen breakage so you’re spending less on replacements.
Spyder Mach-Blue Driver Bits: The Big Deal
As we observed with the Spyder Mach-Blue drill bits their driver bits include a Mach-Blue Armor Plating. Spyder describes this as a super hard surface plating that retains sharper cutting edges. It also reduces heat build-up and cutting friction. That should deliver longer life over other types of drill bits made out of traditional materials like titanium. In fact, Spyder tells us that these bits last up to 70 times longer than standard impact-rated driver bits.
The bits also use the Mach-Blue armor plating to provide corrosion protection and wear resistance. Alloy tool steel torsion zones actively flex to resist cam-out, twisting, and breaking while in use. We’ve seen this with products like Milwaukee Shockwave bits and Makita Impact XPS bits. The 1/4-inch hex shank makes these fully compatible with high-torque impact drivers, as well as cordless drills.
Two kit sizes are available for these bits. The 25-piece kit includes Phillips, slotted, star, and square bits. There is also a 30-piece kit that includes additional sizes and even a couple of nut drivers. A magnetic bit holder comes in each kit, and both kits include a hard case with rubber slip-resistant corners.
- Precision-fitting tips
- Made using a multi-stage heat treatment process
- 33% stronger tip profiles compared to standard bits
