Rated 5 out of 5Â by GunnyUSMC Hot Knife Through Butter
I was having trouble drilling pilot holes and holes for LED lights on my Tigerwood deck project. Dave in the tool department took the time to help me figure out what the best bit for the job would be. I found that if you let the bit do all the work with these bits and apply minimal pressure, it made perfect holes with no chipping or splitting. Tigerwood hits the Janka scale at 2160. These bits handle this wood with no problem as long as you are patient.

I am not sure if I am not using them properly or they are not sharp enough. They tend to get stuck in the middle of the drilling. But sometimes they work just fine. Maybe the wood.

These will rip through any wood like butter, I tested it on a piece of pine then a 1-1/2" oak threads. HOWEVER the screw head guide pulls the bit in so fast that you can't really control how slow/smooth to make the hole. I was drilling rail holes in oak stair treads and had to switch back to my old bits.
These would be ideal for electricians to sink holes in studs, or any other project that doesn't require finesse, but speed.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jimbeaux05 Agressive
This spade bit has a screw point to help draw the bit through the wood. This can be a good thing as it takes no effort to drill although it may be too aggressive for some finer projects. I tried drilling a 7/8" hole through a piece of 5" yellow pine baseboard about 2" from the end and it quickly split the piece. I may have been able to avoid this by easing through using a regular spade. The "screw tip" gave me no option of easing up. It probably would have worked just fine if I had not been so close to the end. I have not tried it on a laminate counter-top and will certainly do a trail hole first. I will be keeping my old spade bits handy for the more finer work.

They are lightning fast cutting bits that do the trick
