Bosch introduces the Nail Strike

Bosch nail strike

The Bosch Nail Strike is the first wood-boring bit that can strike nails and cut through them, according to the company.

The bit features enhanced edges that can cut through up to 30 nails. In addition, it has a fully threaded cone tip and paddle design optimized for fast cordless drilling to run conduit or pipe.

“Trade professionals are looking for accessories that can transfer the full power of the tool into the material. That’s what Bosch Nail Strike does,” Philipp Gosau, Bosch’s group product manager for accessories, said in a statement. “This bit is designed to give the user best-in-class performance even in the toughest applications.”

The Nail Strike is the right bit for jobs where the user doesn’t want to switch back and forth between a spade bit and an auger bit. It requires use of a drill/driver in high-torque/slow speed mode when drilling through nails. The bit is not designed for use in a drill press and is not intended for counter boring applications or doweling, the company adds.

The bit will be available starting February 2019.
