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.

These bits were a huge upgrade from my junk other brand bits. They do cut much faster than a standard bit with the flat edges. The only thing I did not like was it did not come with a 1-1/2” bit or come with a case. I ended up using the case from my old set.

Sharp and Fast
Ive been using these spade bits pretty exclusively for the past 5 years. They are very sharp threaded bits that just pull their selves through the material. I have on occasion twisted the shaft on the larger sized bits going into hard material or using a larger drill most of the time it being user error. The only other precaution I would suggest to people is to be aware that with these self feeding bit if you intend on doing a specific depth or controlled drill it is very hard to keep them from going too deep . With that being said for rough drilling and speed these are the best ive used in a spade bit setup.

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.

Not quite an auger bit, but so much better than a standard spade/paddle bit: It pulls itself along nicely, cuts fast, and fits into a standard hex screw driver holder extension. But in drilling a nine inch horizontal bore through old growth wood, I had to back it out several times to clear the chips. A minor issue with a VSR drill.

The bit set we purchase made the work so easy for my husband and the price was awesome.

Fast but dirty
These bits might be good for someone else but I did not like the fact that it bored itself into the wood. It produced holes with blowouts on both sides of the wood. It also went so fast that it caused some pieces to splinter.

Hot Knife Through Butter
I was having trouble drilling pilot holes and holes for LED lights on my Tigerwood deck project. Dave in the tool department took the time to help me figure out what the best bit for the job would be. I found that if you let the bit do all the work with these bits and apply minimal pressure, it made perfect holes with no chipping or splitting. Tigerwood hits the Janka scale at 2160. These bits handle this wood with no problem as long as you are patient.

Very strong blades...
Bosch does it again. Sturdy, long necked, great blades, very efficient graduated starter head screw. All in all a very good set. The larger ones work great for sinking washers and heads of screws. The smaller ones go right through boards of all types clean and fast. I used some old practice wood, a piece of treated fir, a piece of cedar and a piece of 2x2 fir and the smaller ones cut through all of them - the treated lumber being the most difficult as it was old and treated, difficult to work with as it is, but still put a nice round hole through it. See photos, but remember this is very old wood and it put these to a test. A good piece of nice new wood comes out much better!
