How long is the actual bit not counting the support that goes into the chuck, will it drill holes...

How long is the actual bit not counting the support that goes into the chuck, will it drill holes for 4 inch dowels?
Asked by: Scratch
Overall the bit is 3-1/2 inches long with a 5/16" shank. Sorry I don't have one available to give you the size not counting the support that goes into the chuck.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Worked as expected Used drill bit to make a hole in the ceramic tile above the fireplace to hang a mantle. Used a spray bottle with water to help cut the tile. It worked real well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This bit does the work I bought it for Needeed to drill a 5/8" hole in large poles. Had tried using regular drill bits. Continually missing the center. Chipping the edges at the beginning (Even with a pilot hole). This bit got a hold and did the job. It has continued to do the job and is now getting dull. Purchased another fostner bit, different maker, Couldn't do the work on the first poll.
