If you plan on running drain pipe through studs, you are going to have to make some holes. Augers and spade bits only go up to inch and a half- thats the size of the pipe, so they're out. You need to make holes at least 2 inches, so that leaves you with self feeds or holesaws.

Holesaws are cheaper, but they are also slower. You have to stop after each hole and wrestle the spent plug of wood out of the holesaw body. Very time consuming. If you hit a nail with the holesaw, it's game over. Self feeds can be resharpened with a file.

On the other hand, with this self feed bit, ther is no stoping to get plugs out- there are no plugs-Just a nice pile of wood shavings. The self feed bit has a lead screw that pulls it through the workpiece. All in all a sweet and smooth operation.

I used this bit when I added a laundry sink to my laundry room. Runing the vent drains were no problem with this bit making adequate sized holes for me.

The only downside to this bit is it requires a 1/2 inch drill to operate. (But so would most larger holesaws) The 7/16 shank also mandates a 1/2 inch chuck. Self feed bits generally also require a drill that has some power. My Milwaukees had no problem spining it, nor did my 14.4 Makitas, My Ridgid hammer drill, or my Metabo angle drill.

This is a pretty serious bit that normally costs a decent amount of money, (close to 30 dollars) so I tend to treat it with more care than other bits that costs less. I avoid running into nails whenever possible.
I use the side handle on the drill I am using it with to avoid getting hurt in the event that the bit stalls in the wood while the drill keeps going.

I have used this type of bit for years. I am an electrician and go through a lot of bits. This bit will chew through the toughest wood with hardly any effort. On new construction, you just start the screw and then just hold onto the drill. The bit does the rest. After a few nails, you can resharpen the bit easily enough with a hand file. I have only had to replace a bit when one walked away on a job site; never because it wouldn't eat wood any more. It is not a bit you can use with a small drill, so don't try unless you like buying drills. Vermont used to or maybe still does sell a bit similar. I used to ask for them by calling them butterfly bits. I haven't seen them in a long time though. They were two bladed bits with a self starting screw. They worked well and were a lot cheaper than Milwaukee, but they also wore out a lot more quickly.

Good product all around.

At times I still grab one of these self-feed hole cutters when I need to make a large hole through a thick timber, to big a hole for a auger bit and too deep for a TCT hole cutter. Nails will kill the edge which is tool steel and the screw that makes for the self-feed action is OK for soft woods but on any hard wood like I run into with old houses and the screw pulls the hole cutter in faster than the blades can cut and the hole cutter will jam and wrench the drill. Recommend using the least powerful drill you can get away with so when it does jam you are less likely to get hurt. MDF and OSB will dull the blades quickly but you can use a fine Arkansas hone to dress them and keep and edge on them. Speed wise they are midway between a bi-metal hole saw and a TCT hole cutter.

Had a tough job of 25 holes in a difficult location overhead. The Milwaukee 2 inch self feeding bit easily bored though fir 2 x 4s and was still in new condition when the job was done: Didn't hit any nails. Always get the right tool for the job.

We ordered this to help drill holes in the side of walls so we could insulate the house. It worked great.
