Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rcoin Great bit
The bit worked perfectly to put a 1inch hole in my stainless Steel sink. Took me longer to get it out of the package then to drill the hole. Great product

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Paul Very fine step-drill!
Works really good. A good homeowner cordless drill can spin it without jamming. Cuts mild steel (such as breaker-box metal) easily. Aimed at conduit sizes. Far quicker than the old screw-punch. For-sure better than lower-price step-drills.
It claims "2-hole". It is clearly marked and spaced to do two common conduit sizes. However it has about 16 steps, and you can stop within about 1/16th inch of any odd-size hole you need from about 3/8" to 1-1/8".
In this price class, it really should come-with some form of storage so it won't go blunt in your toolbox. The packaging could have been a fine storage pouch, but isn't. Find a pill-bottle or something.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by alwaysathomedepot Impressive Stepped Drill Bit
This singe drill bit is capable of gradually opening holes starting at 3/16' to 1-1/8" even though the name suggests a smaller specific range. The tip of the bit is elongated to start the hole at ~3/16". It was effortless to go from that to larger hole sizes in 1/16" increments.
There are a lot of positive attributes: It was designed for cordless drills. It has two cutting surfaces that make the bit work efficiently. The bit shaft has flat spots in a triangular orientation to allow the drill chuck to secure the bit tightly. It has the 7/8" and 1-1/8" dimensions marked clearly. It has a nice black finish to it. It is marked USA on the collar.
For the test, it cut through PVC pipe easily. Reaming out the desired hole size was easy to do.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roger Making holes in metal surfaces made supereasy
Unlike other drill bits that makes you stop and go through multiple steps in making holes in metallic surfaces, This drill bit allows you to do the job in one go. It is well made and easy to use. I have included a video of making a hole in a 1/4" wall bracket. As you can see it allowed me to do that in one go. Made in USA. Nice bit to have

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BinfordTools Just what I was looking for
Needed this to slightly enlarge a knockout hole. Did the job in seconds while leaving a smooth finish - no burrs. Used drill on high speed and bit did its job without snagging or locking up.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by John Needed a hole in a new stainless steel sink. This bit did the trick!
Took a while to initially start to 'bite' into the steel. Once that happened it went fast and resulted in a very clean hole, right where I needed it. Great little drill bit.
