Yes, I have and it cuts a much cleaner hole than a drill bit, drill bits cut oval shaped circles in aluminum and the forstner bit cuts alnost perfect circles, wont last very long though maybe 8 cuts into 1/16 thick alluminum 7075 or 6061.

I don't like the name "Diablo", for this reason I normally only buy sanding belts at Lowe's - 25 min. drive further just to avoid the red devil product. Since you offer no other product line to the devil version.
