current auger bit got dull very quickly. how long do you think this one would last going thru headers ?

I run wire into homes so I'm always going thru joists and headers can't decide between spade,auger,installer. I'm going broke any estimate on the good auger bit
Asked by: Mike
As long as you use the plunge method should stay very sharp. Plunge methood: Set bit and drill hole about 1/3rd and pull bit out clearing out any shavings then plunge back another 1/3rd and so on. This helps keep the bit cool, and helps extend life of bit.

I want to drill clean 1" hole in dense/oily wood like cocobolo and other rosewoods.

The holes would be about 10" deep. Would the bit wander if hitting knot or irregular grain patterns?
Asked by: hankthecowdog
The deeper the hole, the better an auger bit fits the purpose because they will stay straighter than other bit styles (they are the same width as the hole the entire length so they can't wander and can clear away the chips). For a shallow hole or one that needs a flat bottom, you would use a Forstner style bit (you can get extenders, but again, augers are better for deep holes, so drill deep with the auger and finish with the forstner). You would never want to use a spade bit in a nice wood or a surface that will be finished, they make messy holes fast where you won't see them.

My son who works for Makita recommended it for a job and warned me to brace my wrist because with the Makita drill it would really bite into the wood with torque. It did and I had no problem drilling through an 8X8 treated beams to install bolts
