Answer: 
A 1/4" pilot hole would help. Do not use this bit on boards less than 2" thick. Drill until the bit just breaks through the board, turn the board over and continue to drill from the opposite side.
This bit will have a very rough finish to the wood. The board should be secured (i.e., clamped, vised or nailed in place) when using this bit as the bit has a large bite into the wood. Have a strong hold on

Answer: 
Thank you for your question. Our spade bits have a pilot point so there is not a need to drill a pilot hole. To start the bit be sure to depress the drill trigger switch slightly so that the bit slowly engages into the wood.

Rated 3.7 out of 5 by 81 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cutting Drill bit It does what it's supposed to do. It cuts cleanly and quickly August 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Like Lightning Worked great. Bored thru 2x4 quicker than a standard spade bit. I'll probably buy the full set. July 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by good purchase I bought this to make a hole through my wooden picnic table for a umbrella. It worked great! July 13, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MAJOR IMPROVEMENT OVER FLAT PADDLE BIT Works nearly as well as a forstner bit! Drilled out 16 holes 1 1/4" dia by 1 1/4' deep in dried southern PT with 1 battery on a little Milwaukee M12 impact! July 12, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Splits Soft Woods I used this to bore holes in 1 inch pine. Made a 1/4" pilot hole but the spade bit too aggressively into the wood and split the plank. A Tool Shop paddle bit worked better and costs less. The bite is too much for a hand held drill as the drill bit would freeze and the drill would pull from my grip. June 21, 2016
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Average Not sure if it was my drill or the drill bit , but it had a hard time going through a regular 2x4. Had to drill 12 holes, by the time I got to the 4th one the bit seemed dull. Served the purpose for the price May 31, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by So sad I purchased 2 of these and one broke (literally) into 2 pieces on the first hole I tried to drill with it, and the other had the shaft physically bend when I tried to use it. Will never buy another Bosch product again and that's a shame. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome for roughing electrical These Daredevil bits are amazingly fast compared to a traditional spade bit, making them ideal for drilling holes in rough framing for electrical wiring. Made for speed, they do not give you the fine finish hole of a traditional spade. With the self-feeding spur, they are very aggressive, and you do need an adequately power drill for them in the larger sizes. They are pretty much all I use nowadays for holes up to 1".
