Traditionally, sleepers, (railroad crossties or railroad ties) where wooden.  They can be made of softwood or hard wood.  Wood Crossties or sleepers are usually treated with preservatives and can last up to 25 years.  Easy to cut and drill and plentiful, readily available, and economically viable.  However, today, they are becoming more expensive with other materials becoming available.  Recently concrete, steel and plastic composites have been successfully entered into the market and are achieving a growing market share.

 
     
 

Approximately 3000 ties are used per mile of railroad track. Ties/sleepers are set much closer together in the USA.

 

 
     
 
Rails in the USA are traditionally joined
to the track by a railroad spike...

...rather than the substantial
iron/steel chairs used in Europe.

CARBIDE TIPPED RAZZOR® BITS
(POLY CARBONATE RESIN PLASTIC)
(RECYCLED PLASTIC)

B&A RAZZOR Bits are specifically designed for drilling holes in any types of railway cross ties, pressure treated lumber, and plastic ties. The single flute works in a screw-like fashion, feeding the carbide tip into the material while maximizing chip removal. The open flute prevents chip clogging. The oversized carbide tip prevents the wood from burning and prevents the bit from getting stuck in the wood. The high quality carbide tip, has a "shovel" (50°) design that will drill into the hardest of woods. Simple put our RAZZOR® Bits are designed for drilling.

Customizable to meet the requirements of your tooling and equipment.

WOOD TIES & TIMBERS

SINGLE AND DOUBLE FLUTING AVAILABLE

Ideal for drilling railroad cross ties, landscape timbers, marine piles, and thick salt treated posts. The unique point geometry and hollow flute design is self feeding without the aid of a lead screw.  The RAILROAD TIE BORE BIT makes an excellent exit hole while keeping "blowout" to a minimum. The RAILROAD TIE BORE BIT can be provided with various shank configurations, the most common is the 1/2" Round Shank with 0, 1 or 3 flats.  This allows the drill bit to be chucked into a ½" Jacobs Chuck or larger drill. Made from high quality American tools steel on precision CNC grinders. A "must have" for any job that requires a through hole in a thick timber of spikes or bolts.

CARBIDE TIPPED MASONRY COUNTER BORES

COUNTER BORE BITS are used to create a counter bore in the  crossing pad for a Torx® head type bolt. The bolt must be installed below the surface grade of the crossing pad to prevent damage to vehicle tires. In colder climates where snow removal is necessary, this countersinking process prevents snowplow blades from shearing off the bolt head.
