T38 Drill Steel – Extension Rods


T38 drill steel, also known as a T-handle extension rod or a hex shank extension bar, is a tool commonly used in drilling applications. This type of extension rod allows operators to extend the reach of their drills or other power tools with hex shank attachments.

Here are some key points about T38 drill steel extension rods:

  1. Material: T38 drill steel is typically made from high-grade carbon steel, which is durable and able to withstand the torque and stresses of drilling operations.
  2. Design: The rod has a hexagonal (hex) shank that fits into the chuck of a drill or other power tool. At the other end, it has a female hex socket that accepts the hex shank of a drill bit or other attachment.
  3. Applications: These extension rods are useful when drilling in hard-to-reach places or when additional leverage is needed. They can be used with a variety of drills, including cordless drills, impact drivers, and drill presses.
  4. Length: T38 drill steel extension rods are available in various lengths, ranging from a few inches to several feet. The length chosen depends on the specific application and the reach required.
  5. Accessories: Some extension rods may include additional features, such as a quick-release mechanism that allows for easy changing of drill bits or other attachments.
  6. Safety: When using extension rods, it is important to ensure that they are properly tightened and securely attached to the drill and drill bit. Loose or improperly fitted extension rods can cause accidents or damage to the tool or workpiece.
