Rated 5 out of 5Â by TheCad Quality flat bit
Really good bit. Holds it's cutting edge well, easy to sharpen and the screw point is a great help, really pulls the bit through the wood.

i needed to drill 22 floor beams in awkward areas, i got fed up of the drill bit snatching , i had to allow for pipes and electric cables, to be honest the bit snatched that many times my wrists have heavy bruising,however on a positive note when i drilled the floor boards it went through easy as the spiral point dragged it through nicely, but if your drill doesn't have a reverse and your going in deep be warned. it did though leave a clean cut hole as described on the packet.
in summing up poor access use a conventional bit , good access use this one.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by daventryhandyman Wow what a performer
Needed to drill some 32mm holes through 4 inch posts for a rope as part of a decking job. started with a normal flat blade drill but trying to drill through the wet posts was all but impossible. shot up to Screwfix for a new one and thought I would pay more and try this one. Got back and tried it on the first post and WOW it went though like a spoon through ice cream. The small screw thread at the tip actually draws the blade though the wood, so where before I was putting all my weight behind the drill to force it through, now I was just taking up the weight of the drill and letting the blade do the work for me. I drilled through 10 posts in less than 5 minutes. I will use these ones always from now on.
