Sorry for the late post. Busy week.
This last day is today. Good price if you have a HH near you.

I have this set. It is excellent. Hold on tight to your drill though, it if binds while in use it can really pull. Be aware that these are aggressive bits and will not leave a clean hole. This is for rough work, not cabinetmaking.

Yep.
Double handed grip for 1/2"+ or injury.
For smooth holes I use forstner or bradpoint bits

I have found a pilot hole with a smaller bit will help control the aggressiveness. Start with 1/8 and go up to progressively slow the aggression to the desired rate.

Could I use these bits with a vintage Black & Decker drill, or is that a bad idea? I know it wouldn't be a perfect fit, but would it be ok for casual drilling?

Of course you can
They should fit fine.

It'd be fine but its only a 2.0 amp + no variable speed.
feed slowly with the bigger spades or you'll burn out the motor... then you'll be looking for deals for a new cordless drill.

Yes. A small pilot hole works before your first spade.
But you cannot progressively go up in Spade sizes --from one spade to the next.
This is not how they are designed.--It's a one-shot bit.

You are correct, i explained poorly.
I would start with a 1/8 and see if it controls the aggressiveness well enough.
If not for the next hole go up to 9/64 and see if that works better. I forget what i found to work best but its worth doing a bunch of test holes on scrap to get it right before using on your intended project.

Pilot hole is a good idea. But I find the aggressiveness is a good thing. When drilling holes for wiring in framing I just want it to rip. Not so much when cutting a hand hold on cabinet door (that’s what a good sharp hole saw is for!)

Well that was a disappointment. I just toasted two Dewalt spade bits on nails today, and thought to myself, "I should see if there's a set on sale somewhere."
