Specialised Drill Consumables designed to remove Hot Work

J&S drill consumables negate the need for ‘hot work’ associated with the drill string which delivers tangible cost savings and improves WH&S outcomes.  Installing the J&S suit of consumables, including the Bolt-On Head Sub & Bolt-On Saver Sub, Aluminium Bull Shaft Clamp or the Extended Bull Shaft means no welding on the drill string.

Other Drill Consumables are focused on productivity and environmental sustainability.


The J&S Spiral Bladed Reamer is machined from 4140 Alloy Steel in one piece with the blades then layered with hard weld (56-60Hrc) delivering hole stability and reducing rod rattle.

‘WatHog’® Water Separator

Optimises wet drilling by extending drill bit life.

Deck Bush
