Drills for drilling the probe plates and pressure plates of all Merifix fixtures.
These are brand new, high quality carbide drills with 1/8" shanks for easy and secure mounting in chucks or collets. The large shank, short overall length and hard carbide material ensures that these drills run very true and will produce good, straight, accurate holes. They are significantly better than normal HSS twist drills which can tend to wobble and drill off-centre or oversize.
This convenient kit contains the sizes needed to suit test probe receptacles, R-3 type locating probe receptacles, and hold-down posts. These are the most popular sizes.
|#55||0.052"||R-075 Test Probe Receptacles||2|
|#42||0.093"||R-3 Locating Probe Receptacles||1|
Fixture kits do not include drills. This kit will get you started. A larger drill kit is also available that includes more sizes, and drills are also available in individual sizes for replacement purposes.
Carbide drills are brittle and will break if mishandled. Always wear safety glasses when using machine tools.
