Home Depot sells the same set, you should be able to price match for an additional 10% off

I have a smaller set of these bits. They're quite good. Be aware that if the bit hits something hard it will kick the drill back in your hand a bit, and the wider the bit the more leverage it has and can jar your wrist, especially on the low speed / high torque setting. So if you're drilling into something that might have hidden nails etc. with a 1" or bigger on torque, best to hold the bottom of the drill as well with your other hand and be prepared for a kick.

Wasn’t this selling for $5 on Amazon? Or was it the smaller set?

I had this happen to me as i was drilling in a tight space. It destroyed my $200 pair of glasses and sent me flying to the ground.
Lesson learnt! :)

No sir. The clutch is for driving screws, so you don't over-sink the screw or cause cam-out. The drill setting is for drilling, and it doesn't use the clutch.

These are good bits. The screw helps you get the bit centered when you get started. Some spade bits (not these), especially if they are a little dull, will dance around instead of biting into the wood.

This is a very good deal, similar to the recent post about the set from Home Depot. The tricky part is to find a suitable case/pouch for them. In the HD thread, someone suggested a pencil case from the dollar store.

One of the reasons I don't cheap out honestly on a drill. I have a Bosch 18V EC Tough Built Drill... it has anti-kickback which I think should be a feature on EVERY heavy duty drill. The wrist saver as I call it. As other mentioned, the Clutch is for over screw prevention, not for drilling.

What is the difference between these and the drill spirals? (wood)

I need to insert some shelving metal rod of 8 inches long and 1/2 inch diameter into the thickness of a 2 inches thick wood.

These are generally for "rough" drilling... like through 2x4 - 2x6 for wiring/tubing etc. If you want clean holes, get yourself some decent Forstner bits... extremely clean holes and a flat bottom if you need that.

now sure how to drill straight with fortsner 90 degres as jigs only allow one diameter. so 8 inches deep, how do we do that? :(

You’re trusting those lil screws and plugs to hold up a solid wood 2x10 shelf and whatever you put on it? I used eight #12 toggles rated at 100 lbs each to hold up a floating IKEA (hollow/laminate) Lack shelf, and it came down one night, pulling four nice 3”x5” holes out of the Gyproc. Face With Tears Of Joy

I’ve since repaired the wall and put it back up, drilling new holes in the bracket centred on the studs, and used 3/8”x 3” lag bolts. It’ll stay up till long after I’m dead.

Ah, ok I didn't see what you were trying to do.

To drill those perfectly, probably build a guide jig and a long drill bit (these bosch spades are too short). A drill press is best but not sure the "throw" will be long enough on must consumer drill presses. So free hand with a long spade bit and a guide is best.

I have a set, beware the screw start tends to split your work piece easier than other drill bits.

I have since purchased a forstner bit set and love how clean the holes are and won't split my woodwork.

Oh its a pic on amazon. Yeah I think I will use lag screws on studs too. Do u think the metal frame should be verticale along side the stud or horizontal?

Hold a bracket in place, mark the holes on the wall with a pencil, remove bracket, drill the pencil marks with basic drill bit of the size recommended for the anchor.

That's just the difference between a spade bit and a Forstner bit, nothing to do with the Bosch bits vs. any other. Different tools for different purposes; use the right tool for the job.
