IDEAL Adds Bul-z-Eye™ Self Feeding Wood Boring Bits To Cutting Tool Accessories Line

Unique Twin Edges Provide Up To 50% Wider Cutting Surface For Improved Speed & Ultra-Clean Holes

SYCAMORE, IL, December 12, 2007 – IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC., a worldwide leader in tools and supplies for professional electricians, today launched Bul-z-Eye™ self-feeding wood boring bits, the newest addition to its broad line of cutting tools accessories.

“IDEAL engineers cutting tool accessories with an understanding of what professional contractors need day-in and day-out: long-lasting durability, cleaner cuts, speed, value and safety. New Bul-z-Eye bits reflect this commitment and the hard working attitude of the contractors who use IDEAL products,” said Aaron Mattison, Product Manager, IDEAL INDUSTRIES, INC.


IDEAL Bul-z-Eye bits are the ultimate solution for contractors seeking to bore holes in wood for running pipe, tubing and conduit. Aggressive twin-edges easily power through treated or wet wood, without binding or jamming.

The twin edges' precision ground teeth provide up to a 50% wider cutting surface, resulting in improved cutting speeds, better balance and cleaner, more accurate holes when compared to bits from competitive brands. Wobbling, a key contributor to splintered, ragged holes, is eliminated by the Bul-z-Eye's precision-machined shaft that achieves perfect bit concentricity and by its burr-free lead screw that feeds the bit through the wood at a consistent rate.


Incorporating IDEAL's signature durability, the new Bul-z-Eye maximizes its value with a bit that is fully hardened through the bit and a black oxide coating to prevent corrosion. In addition, lead screws are replaceable using a hex wrench, extending the drilling life of the bit and optimizing cost-per-hole value.


Bul-z-Eye self-fee wood boring bits are 4-5/8 inches long with a 7/16-inch shank to accommodate 1/2 drill chucks. Twelve bit diameters are available, ranging from 1-inch to 4-5/8-inch, along with 5-1/2-inch and 18-inch extensions. A five-piece plumber's kit (#36-265), a 6-piece electrician's kit (#36-266) and a 9-piece master set (#36-269) are also available.
