Experience the fastest way to blast through wood. The Bosch Daredevil spade bits are designed to drill up to 10 times faster than a conventional bit. These bits are only meant to be used for wood applications, so please keep that in mind. If you’ve never seen these before, I’d say they are worth checking out. I mean for drill bits they do have an aggressive look to them, but it’s more than looks. These bits are designed to be fast, it’s as simple as that. Everything about the bits plays a key role from the threaded tip to the pointy ends and even the twist. Together this is a recipe for effortless drilling. See below for what I experience during my test.
I like that these bits come with a nice little carrying pouch. That might not seem like much but I think it’s great to have, considering most of my bits are just thrown into a drawer “which I do not recommend”. There are 19 bits ranging from ¼ all the way up to 1 1/2in.
Here are a few things that make these bit special. The contoured paddle is designed to remove chips faster and reduced jamming. You may be wondering why the tip has threads on it. Well, the thread is designed to grab the wood and pull the bit through. I caught myself drilling a hole and at the same time trying to back it out, without thinking. With conventional bits that fine, but I don’t recommend it with these bits. The thread is pulling so it’s best to stop the drill and back it out if you need to.
Here you can see the hole quality on both sides. Putting force on the bit will increase the blowouts. I find that I can get a cleaner hole if I let the bit do the work.
While these bits really great and there equally dangerous and I would highly recommend keeping two hands on your drill when using. The bits do most of the work all you are doing it just holding the drill and squeezing the trigger. If I can give you one advice, DO NOT USE THESE on a drill press, nothing good will happen.
Overall you’ll get can expect a fast and clean hole. These are the best and fastest spade bits I’ve ever used. I had a friendly little drilling contest on my Instagram to show off the difference. To find out more stop by Home Depot to check them out.
