I ran across a drill saw yesterday and I was filled with excitement! So I bought the bit and ran home to try it out and this is what I found…..

So what do you think? Are you going to have to get one of these bad boys?

Those bits have been around for years. They were garbage back then, and it still looks like they are garbage.

Looks like that thing is terrible. I’ve always wondered if a spiral up-cut bit would work in a drill. Am I the only one?

I remember using those over 30 years ago when I was renovating my house…good for cutting sheetrock holes for outlet boxes…but not a whole lot of other uses.

Yep, I thought they were exciting too! so I bought a set,

Did almost the same tests, managed to break the 6mm one, took them back and received a replacement after some to and froing.

Not really sure why they are made, maybe to catch first users.

I also would not recommend them and especially in Batt powered drills, as you found out they put far too much pressure on the chuck bearing and will damage your drill.

I just put mine in their box and kept them remembering as they say a “sucker” is born every minute,

In closing they are almost useless however may work a little in a drill press, personally could not be bothered even to find out…just get a bigger drill!!!

Use a Dremel tool. Faster speed means faster cutting.

Have your say...
