15 Oct Plug Cutters for Cordless Drills
Montana Brand is offering a new 25-piece drill and driver set (MB 63127, at right in the photo) that is made in the USA. Called the SXT Deluxe Woodworker’s Set, it includes a couple of self-centering plug cutters (5/16” and 3/8”) that were designed specifically for portable drills so they don’t wander around. They can also be used in a drill press. The SXT set also includes six brad point bits from 1/8” through 1/2”, plus the company’s popular 4-in-1 drill/driver. That has a pilot bit/countersink on one end, and you pop that out and reverse it to reveal the screwdriver bit. Along with those, the kit contains three countersink/pilot bits (spare drill bits included), and seven screwdriver bits. If you’re looking for plug cutters, Garrett Wade has just added a set of three Montana Brand self-centering plug cutters (item 67A04.02, $32, at left in the photo) that come in 3/8″, 1/2″ and 5/16″ sizes. Rockler also carries a similar set. Montana Brand Tools are manufactured by Rocky Mountain Twist, which is located in Ronan, Montana which is an hour straight north of Missoula.
