Sharp, straight and very well made. We used it to drill holes for thru bolts to hold two crossbeams together on two 4" posts. The gantry was used to flip our boat. Highly recommended.

Tough Bit!
Bought this to drill 5/16 bolt holes in Pole Barn timbers 4x6 & 4x4's often stacked together. The bit powered through the treated posts like a hot knife through butter. The sharpness of the bit is excellent and unaffected by more than a hundred holes. Good buy!

    Flute is short for thick wood
    The bit did its job. But I wish I had purchased one with a longer flute. I had to keep pulling the bit out to empty the chips, and then push in to drill a little further. It was a lot of back and forth drilling to get through 8 inches of wood.
