The Cleveland 3957-6, 6 extended shank, high-speed steel (HSS) drill bit has a 30-degree helix angle, with a 135-degree split-point and uncoated surface treatment, which helps optimize performance in general-purpose drilling applications. Conforms to NAS 907 Rev. 14 type A specifications. The shank diameter is the same as the drill size. This drill features an extended length shank for those applications requiring a long reach.
The 3957-6 series performs best when drilling into various steels such as free-machining stainless steel, carbon steel, non-ferrous materials, and aluminum. With no coating or surface treatment, this uncoated tool can be used on a broad range of materials. Spiral flutes act as a passageway for chip extraction from the hole and for coolant to enter the hole. The twist of the flutes brings chips up and away from the cutting edge. 135-degree drill point reduces walking when starting a hole and penetrates more easily than a convention point. Round shanks allow use with a wide variety of tool holding systems. While the 3957-6 series was designed for the aircraft industry, it also works well in other industries. The extended shank provides longer reach than standard jobber-length drill bits. HSS is a common, general-purpose steel for cutting tools, offers toughness and shock resistance, and is compatible with a variety of materials.
The tolerances for various aspects of the Cleveland drill bits are: drill diameter range through 1/8 +0.0000 /-0.0005 , over 1/8 to 1/4 +0.0000 /-0.0007 , over 1/4 through 1/2 +0.0000 /-0.0010 , over 1/2 to 1 +0.0000 /-0.0012 , over 1 to 2 +0.0000 /-0.0015 , over 2 to 3-1/2 +0.0000 /-0.0020 ; drill overall length and flute length #80 through 1/8 +0.1250 /-0.0626 , over 1/8 to 1/2 +0.1250 /-0.1250 , over 1/2 to 1 +0.2500 /-0.1250 , over 1 to 2 +0.2500 /-0.2500 , over 2 to 3-1/2 +0.3750 /-0.3750 ; drill point angle diameter range 1/16 to 1/2 included angle 118 or 135 degrees +/-5 degrees, over 1/2 to 1 1/2 included angle 118 degrees +/-3 degrees, over 1-1/2 to 3-1/2 includes angle 118 degrees +/- 2 degrees; drill lip height diameter range 1/16 to 1/8 total indicator variation 0.0020 , over 1/8 to 1/4 total indicator variation 0.0030 , over 1/4 to 1/2 total indicator variation 0.0040 , over 1/2 to 1 total indicator variation 0.0050 , over 1 to 3 1/2 total indicator variation 0.0060 .
Drill bits are cutting tools used to make holes in a range of materials. They are used in machines such as handheld portable drills, drill presses, machining centers, and lathes. Drill bits come in a variety of types and lengths. Twist drill bits are the most common type of drill bit. They are a round, twisted shaft, end-cutting tool with two or more cutting edges and two or more flutes. Extra-long drill bits (also called extension) are twist bits with extended lengths for drilling deeper holes or greater reach. They are longer than long length bits.
