And drill you will with this DEWALT 12" Black Oxide bit. I bought this for the sole purpose of drilling into a stump instead of burning it. It meets my needs perfectly. I did not want to spend significant sums on a bit that would do the job faster by cutting a wider hole. The size of the stump is too much for that at the cost of bigger and wider bits. Burning is neighborhood unfriendly and I am reluctant to get into a smoke war since others have far more than I. I marked the depth with a piece of tape and away I went. I did not encounter significant bending ( a big deal these days ) nor binding from the bit. I found an extra use for it when I needed to pass a TV cable through the wall and needed that extra length. I just love it when a plan works and another use is found. Thanks for a great bit.

I bought this 1/4-inch bit along with a 3/16-inch bit to be sure I would have one to do a minor modification to a new cutlery block. The slot for the carving fork wasn't wide enough to allow the fork to go all the way down into the block. After drilling two 1/4-inch holes down through the block, my carving fork fits perfectly. Not exactly a real test for the product but it did what I wanted it to do.

Absolute junk. Drilled one hole, didn't hit anything other than wood, bit snapped off clean. Cheap pot metal vs. high quality tool steel that any reputable manufacturer(hear that Dewalt?) would use. Have two other bits that I keep in the truck that I've used for decades. Keep 'em sharp and they'll last forever. This one barely lasts long enough to get it out of the packaging. Some days I think Dewalt is finally getting their act together and then you get a tool like this one. What junk. Kudos to Amazon for handling the return professionally.

I accidentally bought the wrong size drill bit, I wanted to feed some cable through into another room but the cable was thicker than a quarter inch. While the diameter wasn't correct, this extra long drill bit helped me determine the distance between the walls of two rooms and worked great as a pilot hole. I ended up using a 5/16 drill bit on both sides of the wall to enlarge the hole. I had no issues drilling through plaster and wood, with plaster it goes through like butter, for wood it goes through with a bit of force. The extra length ensures that the hole you're drilling remains straight, which eases a cable pulling job.

Bought this to replace my old quarter inch pilot bit that's been sharpened one too many times. I mostly use it for making a small pilot hole to see exactly where you are in between floors or from exterior to interior of the house, and rough in of door bell buttons from the exterior door trim. Drill on a sharp angle through the: exterior trim, sheathing, jack stud, and center of the king stud. Nice, sharp, and does the job.

This bit worked perfectly to drill holes for Cat6 wire. Pulling 1/4" wire through a 1/4" hole is difficult - I encourage thought ahead of time. It works when you strip back some cover and hook your fish to the core, so that nothing you pull through your hole is wider than the cable.

For other drilling tasks - no problem. Bit came from the factory nicely sharp and has worked great.

I bought this to run some Cat 5 cable through my house. It worked like a champ and seems like it will last many years. Cat 5 fits perfect through the hole this bit will create. Not too snug but not loose either.

Want to terrify your wife. Buy this bit and wake her up in the morning rev'ing the cordless drill with this bad boy sticking out and say "I'm going to do some wiring today." As previous reviewers have mentioned, network cabling fits through the holes.

Worked for everything I needed and expect this to be a part of my tools for a long time.
