Miebach Brad Point Drill Bits at The Best Things

Horst Miebach Brad Point Wood Bits

The Horst Miebach Company is a premier quality maker of drill bits in Europe. We offer two lines of Miebach brad-point bits for woodworking, the "Colt 5 Star" line and the "TwinLand" line. The Miebach "Colt 5 Star" line are the top-of-the-line bits and offer some patented innovations, but the Miebach "TwinLand" bits are also high quality German made brad point bits with some innovative advantages related to the land design, which allows the bits to run truer even with hand-held drills.

The Miebach "Colt 5 Star" line is an innovation in brad-point drill bits featuring a patented land design which clears chips more effectively than conventional bits and a patented tip design that cuts through without creating significant tear-out like conventional brad point bits. With the Miebach "Colt 5 Star" bits, you can drill through without using a backing board and still get a clean exit hole. For drilling into wood, there is no better drill bit made than a Miebach "Colt 5 Star". The performance of these bits is dramatically better than the Asian made brad point bits that are commonly available on the market today and significantly better than even good quality Western made bits.

The Miebach "TwinLand" line of brad-point bits offer a high-quality, yet economical, alternative to the Miebach "Colt 5 Star" line. The "TwinLand" design of this Miebach line has two major advantages over conventional bits. The two closely spaced lands of the "TwinLand" bits clear chips more effectively, and thus prevents chip burn by eliminating the problem of chips clogging the lands and then generating enough friction to burn the hole. The second advantage of this Miebach design is that the two lands offer more support to the sides of the bit, which encourages the bit to run truer even with a hand-held drill. The Miebach "Colt 5 Star" line also uses a twin-land design, and offers these same advantages, but it is a different design which is geometrically more complex and thus more costly to manufacture.
