This bit is almost 3x longer than the typical paddle bit. I tried it out for drilling some holes through framing to run some 14-2 wiring. It can handle two runs of 14-2 or 1 run of 12-2 (maybe two but it might be tight). The length of the bit comes in handy if you have a few studs in close proximity or actually stacked on each other. This bit will move though them with ease as long as you have enough space for the drill and the bit in between the studs before you start drilling.

So if your building a deck or drilling holes through a bunch of 2x4's, here's a great way to do it! This Dewalt 5/8"x16" long spade bit will do the trick. It has the 1/4 drive end on it to go right in the 1/4 drill quick adapter, that holds pretty tight or is factory for an impact drill. Just like any drill bit you need to pay attention to not go into nails and other metals and this bit should do the job for many holes!

DEWALT 1 IN. X 16 IN. WOOD BORING BIT - Excellent product and nicely packaged. I was adding some electric to a shed and this boring bit made it easy to drill through multiple 2x4's with ease. It's 1 inch size is perfect for wiring and it is very sharp and cut clean holes even if going through back to back studs. At one point it encountered a nail and it cut right through it. The extra reach and that fact it will fit a "normal" sized drill chuck made it an easy choice to speed this project along.

This is a really nice 5/8 inch boring bit with a long neck to allow you to get into difficult areas. The point and blade are really sharp and stay keen even after a full day of drilling holes. Dewalt have a good reputation and this bit does not disappoint. Just make sure you slow the bit down as you finish the hole, otherwise you will splinter the wood as the drill exits. Happened several times to me before I learned this trick.

DeWalt DW1592 5/8" Spade Bit x 16" overall length with 1/4" hexagon shank drive is great for boring through to a deep pocket or recess. It is Black in Color, Made in China. Max RPM is 3200. This will work with 1/4" shank impact drivers or hammer-drill-drivers. For wood products. Because it is so long, I would recommend lower torque setting so it doesn't grab and bend the shaft. Softer woods would be best.

The Dewalt 5/8” X 16” Spade Drill bit is great for drilling through studs for wiring. The bit is sharp and well-shaped so it drills through wood fast and creates a clean hole. The 16” length allows you to drill through multiple studs in hard to get to places and allows a longer reach into narrow openings. The shaft of the drill is straight which prevents wobble. The ¼” hex shaft prevents slipping in the drill check and allows for use in quick change chucks. Remember to wear eye protection. This can throw off wood chips in all directions.

If you need to drill through 7 2x4’s this is the bit for you! It’s a beast for sure and great for drilling through double top plates to pull wire. It’s really well built. I was worried about the torsional stability of such a long bit but the shank is super fat and doesn’t twist at all. The bit is super sharp and the hex head fits snugly into a chuck. Bigger than I needed but got the job done in a hurry! Really solid product.

This is a nice addition to my boring bits. It is nice and long at 16 inches and being a 1 inch diameter. It cuts smoothly and quickly through wood cleanly and quickly without binding or grabbing while being used. This produces a hole with my Ryboi battery powered drill with little effort and sliced through the wood I was using with a nice smooth finished hole to run a lag bolt or wiring through

The DEWALT 1 IN. X 16 IN. WOOD BORING BIT is exactly as advertised. You can bore a 1 inch hole 16 inches deep. I tested this boring bit in a weathered old 4 X 4 post, and it cut a clean 1 inch hole in the wood post. I inserted the bit into my cordless drill and started cutting. Initially I applied too much downward pressure and the bit would stall in the drill, but easing up allowed the bit to cut smoothly and cleanly. I recommend this product.
