How effective would this be to drill 1 inch hole in aluminum?

Answer

Diablo is the best brand drill bit in my opinion. I have only used it on wood. Which is very good. You could used it for aluminum drill slow and back out every few seconds depending on how far in you are drilling. Since aluminum is not that hard of a metal you should be fine. Remember the aluminum will get warm/.hot

Please provide large size of this Regards!!

it worked
bought it to complete a paulk workbench project, and thats how long it lasted. by the time i got done drilling 230 holes in half inch plywood, it was dull enough to have problems cutting through cardboard. if you need a temporary bit that will see infrequent use its good enoug. if you want something to go back to for years dont bother.
