A: Yes, it will.
A: I don't see why not. I love this brand of spade bits. As long as you can keep the drill steady, should be no problem.
A: For the easiest drilling experience through a 4x6 wooden post, I would recommend using an Auger. Our DAG3030 is of similar size as the SpeeDemon. To check it out, just search homedepot.com for Product #DAG3030. The SpeeDemon can get through, but an auger would be easier.
A: It should, but drill slow
A: Absolutely. The cutting wings are nicely angled to aid in clearing out the chips.
A: it fits in a drill chuck or an impact. I believe there is 6 or 8 flat sides on the end to fit tight in your drill or impact. Really good bit for the price and works very well as long as your don’t hit nails or screws with it
A: Yes except for the inch or so that goes into the drill motor.
A: This bit has a hex shank, but it should be noted we do not recommend this bit for a drill press due to the threaded tip.
A: It has the hex type end so it will fit an extender. You have plenty to grip as is
A: You can stop at whatever depth you want. Then put drill in reverse and back it out.
A: It should not. BUT, be careful, that screw really is what pulls the bit through the wood, so I would suggest you mark the depth you want to drill on the bit and stop there, then back it out. Otherwise, the screw will pull the bit farther into the 4X4 than you want.
A: Just reverse your drill when you reach the desired depth
A: It did on me.
A: Hello Dave! For a flat bottomed hole, we recommend using a forstner bit. For the Spade bit, the self-feed tip is not easy to remove if you don’t complete the through hole. Also the bit will drill too quickly to be able to stop it properly.
