Overall Length

SMART-BIT ® makes a hole 1-1/8″ deep, including the depth of the countersink. It is general practice not to pre-drill the underlying (joist) material, as this is usually treated lumber and does not require pre-drilling. SMART-BIT ® provides sufficient depth for installing deck lumber up to 5/4″ nominal size.
