Customer Questions & Answers

what drill do I use with the 2 9/16 switchBlade self feed drill?

Asked by: Anonymous
This will fit any tool with a 1/2" or larger chuck. I personally have used this on my lathe, drill press, and 18 volt hand drill. I will warn you that the hand drill, if you do not line up your cut perfectly, will bite and try to take your hand off.

I tried to use this with my drill press as I would use one of my regular Forstner bits and it snapped a piece of 3/4" pine in half at the pilot drill site--tried three times, same result...is this only for use with super thick wood and rough cuts? Is there a different speed that might work on a drill press?
Asked by: Desertgrrl
You might want to try a slower speed. This bit is designed for more sturdy woods and beams although it should work with plywood. The only thing I can think of is that the lamination of your plywood may not be sturdy enough. HTH and Good Luck.

what is the angle of the blade
Asked by: RS
I would say its close to a 33 degree. It is very steep and will take a lot of material if you let it.

I want to drill very shallow, circular indentions in a piece of wood (rather than a hole all the way through). Will this bit do the trick, and leave a flat/smooth bottom to the hole?

At first attempt of using this bit with a drill motor that is about 3,200 rpms... it was almost impossible to handle. I almost broke my arm betting slammed into a near-by joist. Maybe an operator issue but I don't think so. I borrowed a drill motor from my neighbor that had a hi/low speed switch. I set it to low which is 300 rpms and it worked like a dream. I drilled 8 holes with no problem at the 300 rpm setting.

I am using this on my lathe for miscellaneous wood projects. Very sharp and holds an edge fairly well. The bit thing for me to purchase this, was ability to change blades. There are only two negatives. The blade was not securely tightened and it bites. If you try to take to much material, it really digs into the material.

Only caution is if you are using a Milwaukee Hole Hawg or equivalent drill is to Hold On as this combination will take no prisoners.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great drill bit This is a great drill bit. No effort drilling through studs, joists, plywood or anything wood. No pushing or straining, it just pulls its self through. I only had one small problem, I hit some nails. Once I ran a file over the replaceable blade, it was good as new. I love this thing and look forward to getting more sizes to add to the collection. You may think the price it a little steep but, you'll know why once you put it to task.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from stronger than nails drill bit is very strong,cuts through nails if encountered...I drilled through 8 inch beam without a problem with drill bit....make sure to have a very strong drill for your work

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Idea The self drilling bits have always been a great help when laying pipe or running conduit but after a couple of nail hits your self drilling bit is done. But the switchblade solves that problem just remove the hex head screw and replace the blade in your self drilling bit. GENIUS

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Milwaukee 2 9/16" bit I bought this bit to cut holes in 6" timber and it works great. After 26 holes so far it is still very sharp and cuts true. I just wish HD had a 3" size.
