Bosch sds max 2-5/8" core bits


Does anyone know the pilot bit size on this bit? I've been looking online and I can't find anything.

Most core bit's of this size use a 3/8" bit, but don't hold me to it..............

I would take it to a local professional tool supplier and see what they have for pilot bits. Many are 3/8" with a taper. If they have one that fits, it won't matter what brand the core bit is.............

Bosch sds max 2-5/8" core bits


3/8"

Found that in a good review (and it rings true with my memory)

"I purchased two bits: 1 3/4 inch and 2-5/8 inch for plumbing purposes. We use these core bits nearly every day. The trick is to drill a 3/8" pilot hole completely through your work first. Then change to the core bit and let it do its work. Drill 3/4 of the way throughfirst, then finish from the other side. A perfectly clean and smooth hole with little mess every time. This bit has more teeth than most others and is built with better steel and has a thicker boby than any other brand. It cuts through common brick, hardened face brick, concrete and prestressed (Flexicore) almost effortlessly. And they last a long, long time. Definatley worth every penny many times over."

as per joe sainz. bosch accesories rep, he comes from a background in commercial concrete work

Thank you everyone. I was able to locate an exact replacement from a new wholesaler in the area.
