In use, it's worth noting these have a published max speed rating of 1500 rpm. I've chucked these into drills that spin faster, and they won't drive straight and clean unless you dial back the speed.

The first few holes will leave that blue coating on the wood. They make quick work of ripping holes in studs where you won't see them.

If what you need is clean, accurate bores and not speed, look into forstner bits.

Got these back in December. These things eat wood fast. Not for any kind of finish work. Because they pull so hard through wood the cut is rougher than standard spade bit cuts.

If drilling thru studs, it works best for me if i stop before it makes it way thru the other side and come in the other side and work back. No chipping

I wonder how they would handle in a drill press if you could grind some of the auger off the tip.

The other night I made a hole in a piece of wood with a 1.5" spade bit that was dull as a post. I think the HP of the drill press let it just beat the wood fibers out of the way.

Spot on assessment of these bits. I have a set too. They really do a good job plowing rough holes in wood.

Shockingly fast bits. But like has been said, I wouldn't use them for anything finished or wood harder than your average pine 2x4 or plywood.

These are for builder. Holes in studs, rafters etc. Horrible tareout, but fast. The Irwin speed bore bits much cleaner, but not much slower either. Use hole saws with backer board for cleanest cut with no tareout. Forster bits are more for flat bottle holes, can be used for through holes, drill press reccomended.

These are construction tools, not fine detail woodworking tools.

These are perfect for that. I hit a couple nails with my spade bits and tried these out to replace them. With an impact driver it's like going through butter, it is just fast and effortless. I'm about done with our basement wiring and these have definitely made it easier.
