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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not your normal wood bit I can't fault these drill bits for the quality of their construction --- they're excellent in that regard. What I found unacceptable was the design with the auger-like tip that prevented me form controlling the speed of penetration through the wood. Instead of allowing me to control penetration by increasing or decreasing pressure on the bit, the auger tip pulled the bit through the wood uncontrollably. Using my drill on the high speed setting, the drill jammed several times on each hole, nearly twisting out of my hand and hurting my wrist. The finished exit hole in the wood seemed especially jagged, which is what one would expect when a drill bit is spun too slow, or pushed through the material too fast. I didn't want to take the set back to Home Depot, because they could not be put back on the shelf to be re-sold, and they were cheap anyway. On my next project, I can try using the bits at a lower rotational speed, and hope for better results. Until then, I would not recommend these spade bits, and instead I'd advise that users stick with the old-fashioned flat blade design.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The tip of the bits have a screw thread on them. As I began drilling the hole the thread grabbed... The tip of the bits have a screw thread on them. As I began drilling the hole the thread grabbed the wood and held the bit in place with little to no effort. Sounds good right? The disadvantage of the threaded tip is the pulling it caused. Instead of having to apply downward pressure to allow the bit to bore through the wood, this one pulls the bit through wood. The faster you drill the harder it pulls, and like most spade bits, if you push too hard (or in this case pull too fast) the bit binds and torques the drill and your wrist. With the second hole (once I got the bit started) I applied back pressure and slowed the drill a little. That seemed to provide a more "normal" pass through the wood. The bits cut well, they were simply not what I was used to. I hope this review helps.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good with a couple issues These spade bits have screw tips that help get the hole started really quick as they pull the bit into the wood. There is an issue with this though - I was drilling through wet pressure treated lumber and needed to pull back to clear out the drilling debris but with the screw tips its really hard to pull them back! You pretty much have to reverse the drill to back them out. This is not how I am use to using spade bits - typically a back and forth motion to make sure the hole is cleared out as you go. Another issue I have is the packaging. Its hard plastic that you cut open, and now you have a bundle of loose spade bits that you need a home for. In the past, all the other spade bits I purchased came with a sleeve to keep them in. These dont, so now I need a way to keep them all together. Lastly it seems like they should be a half inch longer based on what I was trying to drill through.
Date published: 2015-11-10
Rated 4 out of 5 by from 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.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Bosch Daredevil High Carbon Steel Standard Spade Bit Set (12-Piece) is a welcome addition ... The Bosch Daredevil High Carbon Steel Standard Spade Bit Set (12-Piece) is a welcome addition to your wood working tool box if you are a "Professional or a Do It Yourself" person. This 12-piece set has bits from 1/4" up to 1-1/4 inches and are a quality bit set. They are well machined from the factory and sharp. The Cutting Points at the edge of the blade work great at starting your cut and making it easier for the flat cutting portion of the blade to do its job and reduces "tear-out". The center point of the bit is threaded to help pull the cutting portion of the blade into the wood to help relieve some of the downward pressure you have to use on other style blades without this feature. I have used these bits for straight through holes and also for Counter sinking Tee-Nuts and Bolt heads in both soft and hard wood and they have never failed to perform perfectly each and every time on what ever project I'm working on be it a tool work bench or a portable "Fly Tying" table I know that I can use these bits with full confidence they will perform perfectly. I would highly recommend this product.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Bits have a tendency to grab. Work ok in softer woods but to aggressive for hard woods. Bits have a tendency to grab. Work ok in softer woods but to aggressive for hard woods.
