It’s very likely that when Vermont American asked folks how they could improve their spade bits, they got helpful answers like, “Make it so I can see them in the dark.” So with their newest nine-piece spade bit set they included a headlamp.
We could take a potshot at the gimmicky add-on of a headlamp to a pack of spade bits — but if you’ve ever had cause to break them out around the house, you know that an extra light you don’t have to hold on to is not a bad addition. I’m not a champion of the headlamp’s virtues, but a lot of guys out there swear by them, so it really comes down to preference.
At the very least it’s a decent extra when you’re buying spade bits anyway, and if you’re a headlamp fiend — much like I am with flashlights — there’s even less of an issue.
Street pricing will be somewhere around $25.
