[Home Depot] Flex Bit Auger 3/8" x 72"

Just went to HD to look for a round electrical box and came across these flexible bits showing 50% off at the Caledonia HD.

Not sure if it's a superb deal, but it would definitely help with some home improvements down the line.

Well, it looks like everything on that wall is 50%, which is a smoking deal for Klein stuff. I wonder if all the stores are clearing it out...

That said, I had a need for one of those augers once and broke three in a row trying to complete one hole - definitely not reliable.

With klein products? Yeesh, I wonder why they are popular in the electrical industry then :/

I have one that I use quite a bit at a work over the last few years. That is a great deal. I usually use it to to drill from a wall jack down into a basement or crawl space to fish wire or fibre. I've never broken one but I have hit nails. They're pretty sharp and normally cut very quickly, so if you encounter any resistance you need to back off and find a new location.

do you have a 72" length bit? I'm afraid of it shearing under the load.

Mine looks about 5' so I probably have the 60" version.

Would this auger be exactly why one would need to install pot lights?

This is what I need. About to do some pot lights.

If anyone has seen this on sale anywhere I would appreciate posting details :)

Just to be careful not to push it through nails, it will damage it.

I find that 54" is just barely long enough, 72" will be very ackward to use, so an extension + 54" may have been better

The 50% off on the rest is the main intetest here. Be interested to see more.

They don't let you PM Caledon? Try Markham East, I successfully PMed the placement tool for $12.87. If you have the flex drill bits already, the placement tool is a good investment for only $12.87. I had my eyes on it for a while but it never goes on sale until now.
