The nominal length is 0.25" There's about +/-0.020" of normal variation though.

Thanks,

do you happen to know if they are a 1 piece construction or if the drill portion is soldered in place?

They're solid. Trying to solder/weld anything that small would destroy its temper.

Cool,

I wouldn't have asked the question until I had a company refuse modifying the shank on the grounds the drill tips were soldered into the shank.

Hmm.. I've never come across that before.

These are solid though.
