I have had these for a short while and find I use them more and more when I can. These bits are FAST, and they cut a nice round hole. They chunk out LARGE wood shavings, you can see why they cut so fast, they cut a lot on each spin. However, the piper must be paid his due, and in the case of these bits, you need a large, powerful drill to run them well. I have seen some comments here on sloppy exit holes, which has not been my experience at all, I've gotten nice clean exit holes, and I wonder if that's caused by running them with too small a drill. I would use a corded drill whenever possible (These things have sucked my 18 volt lithium 1 amp drill batteries dry in less than half a dozen holes in 4x4 post stock) and it should be something big like a 3/8 drive, minimum. With a smaller drill they will bind in the hole and twist your drill (and wrist). Also unlike others here, I have had no trouble running them through deep 4" stock, BUT you have to back them up to clear the shavings a LOT. They do not throw out the shavings behind the bit well. However, I consider that a small inconvenience, I'm still drilling faster using these and clearing the shavings than with twist bits and much faster than spade bits. I'm not sure how they rate against my other augers, maybe about the same for speed, but my augers cost more for each bit than this entire set did, so I think this set has a good deal of value to it.

Another con is that you shouldn't even think about trying these at more than a few degrees of angle from the wood surface. They need to go straight into the face of the board, or they will run, not walk across your work, dragging that pilot cone like a router bit, digging an unwanted groove in the work.

Pros - fast, clean holes, clean entry, clean exit.
Cons - Need a powerful drill, clogs with shavings, cannot be used at any kind of angle.

***Revised 1/7/07, not made for thick material see bottom***

I bought a 5/8 for my cordless drill for your standard hole to run electrical wires through. And found it puts less stress on my motor and drills a lot smother than a standard auger bit (it doesn't "chew" the wood, it drills it out) so I bought the set. They also leave a pretty clean hole, witch I've found to be useful when drill a 2x4 diagonally. So far they have not slipped or ripped they're selves away from work where I don't have full surface contact. It stays pretty sharp I've probly drilled well over 400 holes with the 5/8 I mentioned and is still plenty sharp to be useful.o

Bad things:

Not all precisely made, many I've tried out seem to be bent or warped a little. They still work fine though, it doesn't seem to effect they're performance at all.

NOT a nail eater, if you hit hard metal like a big nail or a cable staple (or masonry) you will have to touch it up with a file (a rounded file, that most don't carry with them). It's got good tempering and toughness for wood and wood like materials but it's just not a vary hard/metal. Try out Greenlee's auger bits, the nail eaters seem to have the best ware resistance and toughness.

Not made for deep holes. Every time I drill DOWN/SIDEWAYS through something thicker than a 4/4 the bit sort of get`s stuck behind the waste martial. Though most bits like this do that.
As long as you're not drilling blind all the time and in 2x4 or less type wood they are well worth the money, if they where made out of some harder metal, longer flutes and made truer they would have gotten a five star review at this price easy.

These bits will bore a clean hole in a joist or a header and get the job done. However, you will need a drill with a lot of low speed torque to do it, or the self-feeding screw tip will rapidly draw the bit into contact with the material and stall the drill. Even if you free the bit and try to ease the bit into the material slowly, the bit will just grab and stall the drill again.

My solution? I drill a pilot hole with a diameter that is larger than the self feeding screw tip through the wood to be bored first. This prevents the bit from self feeding into the wood and stalling out, and the bits still work very well without the self feeding action of the screw tip.

Hope this tip helps someone who gets frustrated with these bits as I was.

I love the Speedbor Max. If you've only ever used traditional spade bits and hole saws, then you've been living in the past. The 21st century brings us the amaziningly quick tri-blade speedbor max. I used these on a recent rewiring project and electrical system upgrade. I needed to drill LOTS of holes in REAL 2" hardwood joists. These paired with my 18V Dewalt cordless drill made that a very quick undertaking. They have a pilot thread that makes centering the hold easy. And once they start boring, they bore through with speed! Pardon the shameless pun. Even though they cut quickly and the cuts are a little rough, they aren't nearly as rough as you would expect for the quickness. And there's no blowout on the otherside. Bottom line, these work! The set comes in a nice softside zippered case that keeps them from getting lost. I've used my 7/8" the most and after a years worth of abuse, it's still going strong. If there is any down side to these, it would be the length. The overall length, plus the length of my drill makes getting them between 16" centered studs and joists challenging. You have to start the cut at a slight angle. But you cant straighten it out once you hit the middle of the material.
