Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Batdude It works.... with some coaching
I used this to drill a hole in the ceiling to run romex. The bit grabs on to the wood very quickly, but it kept locking up on the wood. I had to keep pressing forward and reverse on the drill to get it done. About half way through the wood, it started drilling normally. I'm hoping I won't need to use this too often but I did finish my project!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NickG It's not working
Needed to fish some wires horizontally through the wall and I bought this set for the job... So I've made the outlet hole in the drywall and tried to make the horizontal run with the drill using this kit.. But, I was not able to keep the drill straight and this kit didn't work for me...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cabezon worked great.
drilled for 4 inch beams with ease and really easy with the length of the bit.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by wildryd really grabs wood and pulls through
Somewhat expensive but a lifesaver if you need it. Be careful though, the bit will drill into everything which can be dangerous when blind drilling through ceilings!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Maven Awful design
Not my first rodeo with a flex auger bit, but I've never used one this small. Some complained of the bit dulling quickly. I did not experience this, as the shaft is so poorly designed, it cams out and spins in the matching extension bit designed to go with it. After one hole that took way too long to drill, the shaft broke and was lost in the wall. I could weld a drill bit to one end of a 3/16" mild steel rod, grind a chamfer on the other, and I could expect it to preform 10x better than this garbage. The guide and pulling grip thing are fine. As long as you do not absolutely need the flexibility offered by the smaller diameter shaft, I'd go with a 1/4" shaft bit, I've had success with both the Klein and Milwaukee.

It did a great job, very sharp bit and nice design to pull the wire with.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MecDepot Great product - All you need to run cables through existing walls.
The drill bit was flexible, yet effective when drilling through the 2x4 floor plates. Combined with the included angle guide, running cables through existing finished walls was quick and easy.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SGTMick Not bad
I will try to keep this short: The product works. It does what it is advertised to do. My only issue with it is that if you are not careful and don't plan ahead, you can drill a hole that will not allow you to pull a cable through with the mesh tool because of the way the wood bit drills its hole....it will be too tight to pull back through without reversing the bit, which, you can guess, destroys the mesh keeper. bottom line - takes a little bit to get used to working it, but just be careful and plan ahead, and it is still a good tool to have in a tight space at an awkward angle.
