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.

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

    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.

        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.

          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.

          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!

            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.

              TOO FAST
              I found out the hard way. The spiral tip on my 1 1/8 Daredevil drives in too quickly. It split the wood the first three times I used it. Cutting into some pine it actually stopped the drill. On the drill press it took the piece right out of the two clamps I had holding it. ANYBODY GOT A SUGGESTION? Brian

                Hi there! We are sorry about the issue you had with DSB5006 Drill Bit Set. The DareDevil Spade Bits have a full cone threaded tip so the bit will pull itself into the wood. A forstner bit may even be a better bit for fine woodworking and provides a smooth bottom if you do not want to go all the way through the wood. We appreciate your comments and will forward them to our Product Managers. You can contact us at 1-877-BOSCH99 (1-877-267-2499) from M-F 7a-7p CST or via email at boschtools@custhelp.com for further assistance regarding this matter. You can also still return the item to Home Depot within 30 days from the date of purchase. Your satisfaction is important to us. We hope to hear from you soon.
