Re: Multiple flute auger bits - question for Derek

John Aniano in central NJ
Thank you Derek,

Could you comment on whether you think these would also be good to drill the few 3/4” diameter holdfast holes in the top? Isn’t this what you used these augers for in one of your WC descriptions? If so, could you refresh my memory as to if and why you used a pilot bit?

Will I be able to drive and control these augers with a heavy duty 1/2” Dewalt power drill? Or will I need to use a bit brace, especially for the larger 1” holes I’m planning?

Sorry to ask these questions but my attempts at searching the WC site to find your older posts about these augers has been frustrating to say the least…

John
