Starborn Industries Introduces SMART-BITŪ for Fiber Cement Board

New Pre-drilling and Countersinking Tool Designed Specifically for Fiber Cement Board Applications.

Edison, NJ, December 19, 2012 --( Starborn Industries, a leading manufacturer and international distributor of premium fastening products, has introduced the new Smart-Bit for Fiber Cement Board. The tungsten carbide tipped pre-drilling and countersinking tool is designed to create a perfect hole and fit for matching fasteners, while ensuring consistently superior finishes.

Fiber cement board products are used in a wide variety of construction applications. The Smart-Bit for Fiber Cement is the first tool that makes it possible to pre-drill and countersink in one step at a consistent depth, without damaging the work surface. The Smart-Bit tool features a free spinning stop collar, which controls the depth of the drill and countersink. The stop collar is fitted with a rubber O-ring to prevent surface damage or marking. Once the stop collar stops spinning, the hole is complete. Additionally, the tool is able to keep debris away from the stop collar, with its built-in debris cavity, which allows for the tool to maintain a perfect and consistent depth compared to conventional flush mounted countersinks.

The Smart-Bit for Fiber Cement Board is designed for use with #10 gauge flat head screws. The tool comes packaged with two different length drill bits, for use with either 5/16” or 5/8” thick compressed fiber cement boards.

For more information on the new Smart-Bit for Fiber Cement Board system from Starborn Industries please visit or call 1-800-596-7747.
