How is this for drilling clean holes in a hollow core door? Hinge came off and need to use the old holes as a pilot hole and bore out 3?8" for a 3/8" dowel to reset the screws. Or would another drill bit type be better?
Asked by: Willozwisp
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.

Bosch Daredevil High Carbon Steel Standard Spade Bit Set (12-Piece) is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 699.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bites off more than it can chew This bit eats through material like crazy, but here's the rub... The tip is too aggressive for most drills. I tried 3 different drills with these bits and had trouble each time. I followed the manufacturer instructions to a tee and even took the time to call Bosch to see if I was doing anything wrong. My drill is no slouch either as I use a Dewalt XRP 18v cordless. I also tried a corded Skill and even a high torque pneumatic drill. All of them failed to even drill down 1/2" into a piece of cedar 2x4 on a 1" diameter hole. The cut that it did make was precise, but as soon as it got down about 1/2", it would bind up. I tried different locations on the 2x4 as well and even compared it to a standard spade bit. Frankly, the spade bit made nicer finish on the hole wall and easily got through the 2x4. I think that if the tip were less aggressive, these would be great. But at that breakneck cutting speed, you'd need a monster of a drill to get through a somewhat deep hole.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from The screw auger type tip is nice for helping lead... The screw auger type tip is nice for helping lead the bit while boring, but the bit itself tends to hang up. If a nail or other unseen obstruction comes into play, the bit comes to a screeching stop, slamming your hand into whatever is nearby. I'm an electrician by trade and have drilled many holes in studs... this one works fine as long as nothing interferes, but the slightest nail, knot or hard spot in the wood causes trouble.

The first thing I did was use the 1 1/4 inch bit to drill holes through some joists for electrical cable. Worked fine for a few holes but the first time the going got tough, the bit bent and became useless.
