Bosch Daredevil Spade Bits Review – Tool Snob
Toolsnob.com reviewed our Bosch Daredevil spade bits way back in July 2009.
The author, Doug Mahoney, wrote, “The primary difference between the Daredevil Spade bits and your standard spades bits is this little threaded nub up at the centering point. Once these threads catch (which they can’t not do), the bit is actually pulled into the wood. This happens with so much aggressiveness that we practically felt in danger of dislocating our shoulder while drilling holes. The body of the spade is also contoured so that the shaved wood doesn’t clog up the hole and bog down the bit. The pointed spurs are additionally designed to minimize blow-out (which is better than most spade bits, but still considerable). There’s a lot going on with these little bits.”
His bottom line: “Bosch Daredevils absolutely devastate lumber and if you’re looking for some real fireworks, put one in an impact driver.”
