Super Clean Cut Drill by STAR-M

$14 AUD

3 left in stock.

This drill bit is precision milled and cuts cleaner than any drill bit you'll ever encounter. This is achieved by having the pin perfectly in the center of the drill, which will always create a centred hole. This super clean cut drill bit is extremely efficient in both cross cut as well as with the grain.

Apart from being the perfect timber drill bit, the knife-like flutes of the Star-M bits will also deliver you a clean and precise cut in more fibrous materials, such as bamboo.

Plastic-free Policy:

Japanese Tools Australia is an environmentally conscious company and we endeavour to eliminate plastics in as many parts of our business as possible. Your purchase will be shipped in recyclable non-plastic materials, and we re-use cardboard and paper wherever possible in our shipping process.

Exceptions to plastic-free policy:

Unfortunately, we are required to dispatch some express items in pre-paid satchels and in such circumstances we have no choice but to use a plastic satchel. Please keep in mind these satchels are 100% recyclable. Our suppliers also use plastic in their packaging of some products, and we do not remove these protective measures before shipping. We are considering strategies to eliminate these two remaining sources of plastic in our shipping process. As many of our items are hand-made, they do not arrive to us or to you with extraneous packaging, though this is not the case for all of our products.

Breakage in shipping policy:

We pack our shipments in specialised materials to ensure that our customers find them in the same condition that we send them. If you receive your products in a damaged condition, please email orders@japanesetools.com.au with your order number and photos of the condition of the products within a week of collection. If an item is deemed to have been damaged in transit we will replace it with like kind at no extra shipping cost to the customer.

If you are unhappy with the condition of your product and it has not been damaged in transit, please refer to our returns and exchanges policy. 

We stand behind the quality of our tools. If a tool is found to be faulty or damaged in transit, we will verify the issue with you, and offer a refund or exchange when the problem is brought to our attention within 30 days from purchase. If problems arise outside of this period this policy will apply at our discretion. Where a refund or exchange is agreed upon, we will mail you a paid addressed bag to return your items, verify their condition once we receive them, and then process a refund or mail the new item.

If a tool is purchased as a present or the purchaser changes their mind, we will exchange for stock of equal value or store credit when we are contacted within 2 weeks of the purchase. We ask that the customer covers the cost of shipping in these instances. We will take a payment for shipping over the phone, send you a paid addressed envelope, verify the goods' condition once we receive them, and then mail the new item.

If a tool is damaged through improper use, we encourage you to contact us. We may not be able to exchange the tool, but may be able to offer advice on technique or recommend a more appropriate tool. Where possible, we encourage our cutomers to ask us questions about our tools' use before they purchase them. We can be contacted at info@japanesetools.com.au or 02 9527 3870.

Sorry, we can't exchange gift cards.

I recommend this product

STAR-M drill bits. &. Wooden nails.

The drill bits were a pleasure to use. They stayed very true while drilling my pen blanks which are mostly hardwood burls &the cut was very clean and no splintering on the end cut. The wooden nails served two functions joining & decorating some of pieces I make as a hobby.

Lives up to expectations

I used this to cut a clean circle for abalone inlay on a guitar fretboard. Perfect cut and flat bottomed. Excellent. My only issue with these is their short length. I note luthier supply shops are now stocking these. Obviously news is getting around. David Trembath

Super clean cut

Needed a super clean edge in red cedar and these bits provided it, centering is also very accurate. I have a good set of forstner bits too - but these Star-M bits definitely cut a cleaner hole. Agree with David T, drilling depth is limited due to their being short - but for what I needed to do, they are spot on.

Sharp edges on drilkl lhole

It worked as advertised. My issue with it however is its short length. In the end I had to supplement with a longer bit to get the holes I needed (or slotted guitar head tuners) Recommended for limited use or use a Forstner bit
