Types Of Paper Drill Bits

Paper Drills - Industrial Hole DrillingPaper drills are amazing machines, especially considering what they do. Paper drills are to paper punches as jet fighters are to kites. There is really that big a difference. Where a paper punch can go through 1-10 sheets of paper at a time, a paper drill can go through an inch or more of paper (depending on the model) in a matter of seconds.

One critical part of the paper drilling process is the hollowed out paper drill bit. Did you know that there are several different styles of paper drill bits? Unfortunately not all paper drill bits are interchangeable. If you own paper drill “A”, you have to use drill bit “A”. The biggest difference between paper drill bits is the design and size of the shank.

All paper drill bits feature a hollowed-out design and all have a sharpened rim for drilling through paper. All drill bits also need to be waxed and occasionally sharpened. So what are the different types of bits?
