Bosch is adding accessories to its Daredevil™ line, including a Framing Blade, Spade Bit and NailKiller™ Auger Bit. The Framing Blades, available in sizes of 6-1⁄2″ to 8-1⁄4″, have control-cut shoulders to reduce kickback, expansion slots to control blade warp and thin-kerf, extra-hard steel plate blades with triple-sharp carbide teeth. They’re covered in a Speed Coat™ finish to add speed and avoid binding, and sold for about $9.95 as of 2011.
Bits in the Daredevil line include a spade and auger bit. First of its kind among spade bits, the Daredevil ($3.47 in 2011) has a full-cone threaded tip to drill faster and pull through material with less effort and vibration, while the NailKiller ($29.99 also in 2011) has a double cutter and reamer edge for clean hole quality and a center spine for additional strength during aggressive drilling, plus wider flutes for chip removal.
