English translation:flat (chisel/ spade/boring) bit
Explanation:
Given your extract, this must be referring to the drill bit. The term I knew in French for this wasz "mèche" but it looks as though they are synonymous.

http://www.rona.ca/htmfr/2_0/projets/2_8_d44c.htm

Pour ce faire, utiliser une perceuse munie d'une fiche plate et percer des trous de 5/8 po (16 mm) de diamètre dans chaque montant où le fil doit passer.

Quincaillerie et matériaux
· Attaches en métal (crampillons)
· Clous
· Coupe fil
· Fiche plate
· Perceuse
· Pince à bec long
· Ruban de tirage de 50 pieds
· Tournevis à manche caoutchouté à l'épreuve des chocs
· Vis

I found this site which is bi-lingual – or rather almost, this section being underway - and from my reading of it, the “fiche plate” corresponds to what I know as a “mèche plate”

http://www.canoe.qc.ca/maisonreno/rb0301_p54a_2602-can.html (Here the term "mèche plate" appears - the one used for wood, aka "mèche à bois".
