    Recently I saw a video tool review on Wood Owl brand auger bits, and they outperformed the “regular” style auger bits through some timber frame. Does anyone have experience with these bit or this brand?

    I’ve heard of them, but never used them. The self feed screw is really great on my Bosch Daredevil spade bits though.

    I have some of the Irwin Speedbor bits like in the pic. They are fast cutters.

    I’ll 3rd the Daredevil bit by BOSCH, they certainly take no time at all to go through a 2 by.

    I don’t know what brand they are, but I’m using self feed augers like these. So far they cut really well. I especially like that you don’t need to lean on them; just let the feed screw do its thing.

    BE the change you want to see.

    The case is a POS, broke the hinge after a couple of days. lol

    Never heard of them. BeThePro set me up with a set of the Daredevil bits and they are more than adequate. Also gave a set to my electrician son-in-law and he loves his.

    The Wood Owl bits are Japanese made and can be bought online as far as I know. I think they can chew through nails without breaking your wrist supposedly. Just wondering if anyone has proved this.

    Here is the video I saw:

    I bought these bits as well and to be quite honest part of the reason I bought them was the case. I have the spade bits and regular drill bits.
    The hinge broke right away also. I then got a set of the Bosch DSB5013P 13 pc. Daredevil™ Spade Bit Set in Pouch . I love them!

    maybe we should pick up a few different bits and do a video comparison to see which ones work the best. It would make one hell of an afternoon.

    Don’t threaten me with a good time! I think it would only take a few minutes though.

    Where can you but the wood owl bits at?

    It’s kinda expensive to begin with, and with shipping to CAN, it gets a little ridiculous. I’ve tried a few distributors and ebay.

    The search only comes up with one dealer for Canada, and they are based out of US. 🙁
