Will the 1 in. bit bore a hole that will fit 3/4 in. PVC pipe easily?

3/4" PVC is just over an inch in outer diameter, you would need a 1-1/16" forstner bit

Can this drill bit be used in a normal drill or does it need to be ryobi

Any drill that can accept a 3/8 inch or larger shank can be used.

Can this be used in a RYobi cordless impact drill to make 1 inch holes cleanly in wood for a dowel?

Only if the drill has a standard high-speed mode. I would not use it on an impact drill

I was really impressed with how clean of a cut this forstner bit provided, but it has to be used on a high-speed drill. This bit is about as sharp as a knife and is meant for cutting very clean holes/depressions in a finished piece, such holes a spade bit cannot reliably do. My first project with the bit was cutting depressions to fit dowels for a children's play ladder. The bit drilled quickly but allowed for good depth control. It cleaned saw dust and cuttings out very well. The center spur is a great feature for accurate holes as well. Ideally, you want to use this bit on a drill press but I was able to level it well on my hand drill. I used my DeWalt XR at it's fastest mode (2,000 RPM) and the holes were near flawless. I experimented at a slower speed on scrap wood and the hole splintered. This bit fits a 3/8" chuck and is made in Austria, so you know it is quality. The bit also needs to remain sharp so store it well.

I used the bit to mortise hinges on new wood shutters I installed, a technique I learned about on www.thisoldhouse.com The bit was steady, and cut neatly and cleanly, making the job much quicker.

amazing quality , highly recommend for a recess fasteners , carriage or other type of bolts, the reason for 4 stars, is at the base i wish the company made it square so it grabs better on the drill chuck, i had to keep tighten the the chuck, other than this it is awesome, be careful with the pressure you apply as it really goes in very easily, truly great product

The bit was perfect for my job and bored a nice smooth hole, faster than other brand forstner bits I have used.
