Try it on a test piece first - the hole might not be quite right for the dowels. Also, the existing holes may be a bit big, causing the bit to wobble. a ¼ or ⅜" twist bit would probably be better.

It'll work in any quarter-inch or larger drive drill. I used a DeWalt 9.6-volt drill that I've had for over 20 years. The bit is sharp and kept its edge.

I used this bit in my drill press to bore some shallow holes to accommodate tea light candles on the project I was working on. No wobble at all, just a nice clean cut.

Use these things like cereal and milk. They work great for whatever holes you need to make.

This set of DareDevil bits easily crack the wood with the thread cone. Unlike other spade bits without threads on the cone (a.k.a paddle bits), the DareDevil cone push the wood to the sides when the thread goes in, while the "paddle bits" cut a small hole with the blade on the tip. The DareDevil bit drives much faster, but almost always cracks my wood open and leaves the entire piece unusable. So I would not recommend.

I used this to drill a hole for two Z-Wave recessed security door sensors. The doors were engineered or soft lumber so it had no problem. It almost drills a little too fast so be careful. The next job was to find a stud under a hardwood floor (pine) that was being removed. The guide screw at the top of the bit broke off making the bit useless as it cannot even get started. I think this bit should be able to last more than two simple light jobs.

These Bosch Daredevil Spade Bits are the fastest bits I've ever used. They chew through wood incredibly fast, at least two to three times faster than my previous spade bit set. They bore clean holes through stud grade lumber and pressure treated lumber. The bonus bits are great for the price. All the bits also come with a thin coat of oil on them to prevent rusting which I appreciate. The larger bits can be tough on my brushed drill that's a few years old, but it still gets through everything. The aggressive speed can be draining on the drill/battery if you don't have a powerful drill.
