Dustless Drill Bits (1)

Smiths Hire recommend using the Heller dustless drill bit , the ideal solution to prevent a dusty environment. These modern extraction drills extract dust where it develops and from directly within the hole at the same time as drilling. This new technique almost completely removes all the dust, making subsequent hole cleaning obsolete. A perfect cost-effective solution for customers saving time and money by dramatically reducing any clean up time.
