Will these work in a plunge router? I have a bosch thst fits a 1/4 and 1/2” shank.

Asked by RonneyGeorge December 27, 2019

Answers

These bits have a triangular shaped shank, I don't think they would square up in a router collet. They work great in a drill chuck.

What size are the shanks on these bits? 3/8 or 1/2

Asked by Deuce6603 November 8, 2019

Answers

They are stepped, 3/8" triangular shape , then 1/2" round towards the cutting end. The triangle fits a drill chuck well. Hope this helps.

How can I operate this bit and work ?

Asked by Syeda May 11, 2019

Answers

Need more information. The drill bit needs to be installed in a drill chuck and the drill bit is then manually guided when using; whether it is a hand drill or a drill press.

what size holes does this set create? i need to create a 3" hole will one of these work?

No this will NOT drill a 3" diameter hole. For that you will need a hole saw

I bought these bits to drill holes when making a tumbler turner. I used them again already, to drill holes in animal blocks to make bird toys. I love this set. Very easy to use. Thanks, Khat

decent bits
This is a decent set of bits for the price. Theses aren’t a premium set but if you just need the bit for a few jobs or just a DIYer then i think they are the perfect set for you.

Bought this so i could counter sink a screw and hide it under a piece of dowl rod so no fasteners are visible on a dinning table i made. Worked great. Easy to use. And was nice having all the different sizes to choose from.

Dull bits , Poor quality, I was drilling hole in a pine board, hit a knot the bit snapped in half . I would not suggest this product to anyone who likes to do woodwork they will make you very flustered. The holes are not even smooth.

Great bit set for the price. They make clean holes with lots of chip clearance. They have a heavy point to keep the bit on target when starting to drill.

I needed to countersink some lag bolts and 3/4" washers, so I stopped by Home Depot and grabbed this set off the shelf. It seemed like a great deal - the whole 8 piece set was only twice the cost of a single bit from the competitor's brand. However, when I took a closer look at the cutting edges of the bits and realized they were completely mangled looking (see picture). It looks like they were sharpened by a caveman wielding a stone hammer. It doesn't appear to be a one-time quality control issue either - every single one of these bits were gouged and mangled the same way. These bits will never be able to provide a smooth cut without some serious work being done to sharpen them correctly.

Right out of the package I noticed that the cutting edges were very jagged and dented and had burrs (see image). The three largest bits were dull requiring a ridiculous amount of force to get through soft pine. There was no point in trying the other bits. Completely unusable. They're going straight back to the store as soon as I find the receipt.

The cutting edges of these bits are very poorly machined. There are divots all along the cutting-edges and the bits do not cut well. This was a factory-sealed bit-set, so I know that it was not a returned product. The attached photos are the bits BEFORE any usage, i.e. straight out of the box!
