STEEL PRICES RISE:
The carbon steel market is poised to grow by 699.35 MT during 2020-2024 progressing at a CAGR of almost 8% during the forecast period." (Source: Business Wire)
This is what we are seeing all across the industry; day after day new emails from vendor's telling us that their prices are rising, every order we make for materials needs to be revised because the last price is no longer valid, and for good reason. The cost of steel materials has been steadily increasing throughout 2020, and it unfortunately has not slowed into 2021. The reduced capacities of companies in this industry due to Covid-19 health and safety regulations continues to have an impact. As a result, we are forced to increase our list pricing for 2021 and add a steel surcharge to off-set the rising costs that is projected to continue this year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have on our close and prospective customers. We we will do what we can to keep our prices low when the opportunities are found, but right now we are left with little options.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support.

Pengo Carbide Auger Tooth
The Pengo Carbide Auger Tooth is mostly used for heavy duty jobs in which standard auger teeth will not work. The addition of carbide provides toughness and durability to the most hands on part of the auger bit.
This tooth was designed with these drilling applications in mind:
Depending on different drilling conditions and materials, the teeth can be used at either 40 or 50 degrees, giving you the power to customize and choose how aggressive you want your auger bit to be. 50 degree positioning provides a more aggressive attack.
