"I just received my order from you for two (Doublecut) auger bits, a ¾" x 12" and a 1¼" x 12". The delivery was exceptionally fast which I appreciate very much. I have just drilled holes with them and can not believe how wonderful they work. Easy and fast as well as perfect smooth holes in the hardwood. These are the best that I have ever used. Thank you for the fast service and the excellent product. I will recommend you to all of my associates and friends."
