The Bosch "Daredevil" high carbon steel spade bits give the woodworker a beefy, no-nonsense cutting tool sure to become a standard in the tool chest. They are nicely designed and manufactured. The gimlet point bites quickly, allowing the cutting edges to do the work. Thoughtful and appreciated is the tang and small vertical cutter face at the edge of the bit. These will keep the cut smooth, eliminate "feathers", and keep the bit aligned for a 90 degree cut. I found the drill bits heavier than most. They do not chatter. But the bits seem to do a better job in the low to mid rpm range. I took these bits right out of the package to drill a series of mortise holes in end grain Douglas fir. I did "by eye" to replicate the handwork of a North Jersey Dutch carpenter of the Eighteenth Century. Who typically would have used a beam borer. The bits worked quickly, making clean cuts. After a total of 24 cuts, the Bosch bits were still sharp. They did not heat up. Could have taken more punishment!. They will of course receive a slight sharpening. But overall I was most impressed by their performance. For the electrician, the bits very quickly make accurate cuts through dimensional lumber for running cable! Bosch delivers quality..

This bit worked to create the desired hole but does shred the wood some. Bit works best if advanced slowly into the wood. A forstner bit does the same job but with less shredding. See example in photo with this bit result on the left side.

I tried using this bit to bore holes through 4x4 pine. I was using a Milwaukee corded drill/hammer drill which I thought would have sufficient torque but it did not. The threaded tip on the bit engages the wood way too hard causing the spade portion to get sucked into the wood and the drill to come to a sudden halt. I thought I was going to burn out the drill motor. I tried drilling pilot holes of various sizes. A 5/16 pilot hole ended up being enough to keep the spade bit centered and prevent the threaded tip from engaging the wood. I also ended up drilling the holes with my drill press to avoid any additional risk of burning out my drill. Long story short... only use these bits if you have a high powered drill or if you have the patience to pre-drill all of your holes.

good smooth holes without draining your battery
Best spade bits i've used yet (i bought 3 sizes at the same time, only had time to use one but i'm sure the others are the same, just different diameters). Don't forget to drill the pilot hole, and have the drill on the slower speed (fast is too fast for these bits).

best spade bit i've used
Technically, it's more of an auger bit, but it's marketed as a spade bit. Regardless, it worked much better than the standard spade bits that just have the point. However, don't forget to drill the pilot hole or it won't work as well.
