    Answer This Question

    A:  You probably could drill through very thin metal but it would take a toll on the cutting edge of the drill bit.

      A:  I don't know. I haven't tried that but I would assume so.

      by|Oct 27, 2022

        A:  No. A step bit would be a much better choice for drilling a hole in a sheet metal lid.

          A:  No

              Fast cutting!
              Worked like it should. Bought it for my ¾" deck spindles i had to drill holes for. I give it 4 out of 5 stars because of the screw tip. If youre drilling all the way through wood, perfect, but if youre drilling a blind hole, its hard to control/stop your feed as it wants to pull you all the way through. I modified my bit on the bench grinder, grinding off the threads but leaving the point. Now it was perfect to drill and control for blind holes.

              Too weak
              Drilled about a dozen holes and broke. Cut very good until it broke, but once it breaks it aint good for nothin. Not a fan of the screw thread pilot either.

                Sorry Diablo. You missed the mark on this one.
                I've enjoyed other Diablo products and I've used the identical Bosch spade bits with much success. So I expected these newly branded Diablo bits to perform just like the Bosch bits. Well I've never had a Bosch spade break on me. Not gonna lie. I'm disappointed in the performance of these Diablo spades.

                  Worst spade bit in every adpect
                  Impossible to start on hard surface (melamine laminate for instance) without pre drilling, due to dull tip. Extremely aggressive guide screw drives forward so hard that my brushless drill stalls. Impossible to do high rpm / slow feed for clean holes. Entry edge is chipped no matter how careful you try, and exit edge looks just like after explosion. So if you have to use it, suggest predrilling with ~3/8 and going as careful as you can. Returning, and never again.
                    Easy to start drilling holes where you need them to be. Great tool for even the most novice DIY person.
