That will allow me to drill a hole 1 and a half inch diameter 8 inches deep into wood with a standard 3/8 inch drill?

search for an auger bit. I did a quick search and the smallest shank I saw was 7/16ths.

Run it slow. The screw on tip needs to pull the cutting edge into the wood. If you run it fast the screw tip will loose it's bite. Then you must apply an unconfortable amout of pressure. Trust me.

Thatís a primary electricianís tool. It always ran in a big Milwaukee drill with an extended handle. We could reach up to a joist, place the screw tip on the joist and press the trigger. Itíll dig right in without applying significant pressure. Thereís a couple of them in my tool box.

Make sure you have your drill on low speed and use the side handle.

Mark the depth with tape on the bit.

Spade bit and extension.

Iíd agree with the suggestion to use a spade bit, but only if itís a good one. Over the years Iíve bought and used low priced spade bits, and been disappointed, but one day I decided to get a set of Bosch bits. Man, what a difference. Those are some wood eating spade bits.

If it needs to be precise smooth and flat bottomed the a Forstner bit with an extension is the way to go. They do tend to be expensive.


for every stereotype there's a prototype
