how long is the drill from the end of the shank to the tip

Answers

Please note that the answers to this question are for the 7/16 in bit only although they come up when searching other sizes. Smaller diameters are proportionally smaller. The 5/16 in bit makes 1" maximum depth holes.

What is the maximum hole depth when drilling a block of wood?

About five inches if you want to make it through the other side. I used this mainly on some stainless steel bars and they worked great.

Probably if you take your time and don't force it. It also wouldn't hurt to use a little drill cutting oil.

good drill bit but too short!
Good drill bit. I see paint scaper blade get shorter on lenght, now drill bot get much shorter too. I check the old milwaukee drill bit that I have to these new ones, they longer than these new ones 1/2-5/8 inch long. Not much, but it became useless when I use them to pilot drill my carbinet screws! Please, make the drill bit longer like it use to be, we pay for these extra lenght. Cut corner to make some $$

I needed a 3/8" drill bit to complete a landscape border project. The heavy plastic brick border has holes that only are opened so far and need a drill bit to enlarge the hole to hammer in the stake to secure the 4" border piece. I found my Dad's drill over 60 years old, it worked perfectly, however, I was missing a 3/8" drill bit. I went with the advise of a Home Depot employee who helped me select the best drill bit for my project. Cost was perfect and my drill bit helped me finish my perfect landscape border. I highly recommend this brand if you are looking to find a quality drill bit!

Excellent drill bit. It is perfect fit for the 5mm size I was looking for, to use with my hobby projects. I customize Transformer toys, and I drill holes for extra appendages like wings / small weapons, or deepen existing holes. I bought a Ryobi Corded Driver from a local Home Depot a few months ago, and this Shockwave 13/64in. drill bit is the exact size I was looking for, as shown in my two pics. Highly recommended item, strong and durable with titanium coating.

Bit that will Last!
Needed to replace one of bits that I broke on my last job. So I decided to get the Milwaukee Shockwave made for your impact drill. This bit is made to drill though Steel, Aluminum, Cast Iron, Duct/Sheet Metal, and Stainless Steel. I had no problem drill though 1/8" steel. I cut with very little effort. One good plus is that is coated with Titanium to help keep the bit sharp. The only negative is bit is only 1 3/8 long so it was shorter than I was replaced. Wish it was a little longer.
