Twist drills with a roof-shaped point and a short robust shank are mainly applied for dowel bit bores in solid wood or cross grain wood.
Special dowel bit drills for multiple bores (which can be carried out with dowel bit drilling machines) have a screw on the robust shank.
Twist drills with a backed centre point (with 2 cutting edges) are applied for exact and clean through holes mostly across the grain.

Auger bit drill
They are mainly applied in hand drilling machines for deep bores.
They have a cylindrical bore head with which and dimensionally stable plain bores are carried out on even bore ground. They mainly have a larger diameter. They are suitable for boring out of defective parts and knots.

Wood disk drill
They are also suitable for boring out of knots; but are mainly applied for manufacturing wood disks (cross wood dowels) which are placed instead of a drilled out knot.
Depending on the form of head, conic bores for flat head screws can be manufactured or bores can be cylindrically enlarged in order to countersink screw heads.

After having finished drilling resin and dirt residues must be removed with hot water, petroleum or thinner!
Slight lubrication with acid-free grease protects the drilling tools against corrosion!
