Strongest Drill Bits In The World.
Here is the story behind Rodman Drill and how the strongest drill bits on the planet ended up in your hands. In 1983 Warren Dale Chesgreen flew to Cologne Germany to attend Europe’s largest tool show, The Eisenwarenmesse. His mission was to find a revolutionary drill bit yet to be seen in America and that’s exactly what happened on the last day of the show. He stumbled upon a demonstration which was underway and could see the excitement from the crowd. He was hearing a the high pitch shrill of something being machined, the smell of burning metal and the smoke rising from the center of the crowd. Warren now saw nothing through the throngs so he pushed himself forward. What was it, he thought? The excitement was now palpable in the air.
Warren scratched and clawed his way through the mob and his jaw dropped from what he witnessed. A man was drilling through a hardened steel with a red hot bit in a press, then a brake rotor, then a sheet of stainless steel, then concrete, tile, even porcelain, but the capper was when the demonstrator took a hammer drill, and with a longer bit, drilled through all those materials at once.
At that moment, Warren knew what Columbus felt with his first glimpse of the New World. Later that night, into the early morning hours, Warren negotiated and secured exclusive import rights and began bringing the drill bits from Germany, branding them “Rodman Drill,” the namesake of his Los Angeles tool founded in 1928. The Rodman Multipurpose Drill Bit is known worldwide.
