For what type of drills this bit is?

Can it be used in a handheld drill or it is just for drill press? Thanks!

The design is for a drill press, but I have used them the with a cordless drill as well. They will bend at higher speeds over 800rpm. As with any tool... if you have to ask, read the instructions.

I was impressed with the sharpness, and smoothness of this pit out of the package. Unfortunately... after some 20 holes in soft select 1x6 pine it started to get dull. Started experiencing pretty bad tear out. And trying to push a dull bit through wenge, or purple heart? Forget about it.

I used this to drill into the side of a 6 inch red oak newel post, and it drilled through the oak like nothing. Before buying this Diablo bit, I tried a new Ryobi forstner bit on the same post, and it just got hot and made lots of smoke.
