Very disappointed, when the bit arrived I put it in the lathe tail stock and started to bore out a hole in a heavy wall pipe on a project that I was working on only to find out that it would only squal and not cut at all. After close inspection I found that the 10 degree slope back and down from the cutting edge was opposite, thus rubbing on the back of the bit and not letting it cut at all. After regrinding it to specs it works fine now. I need a 15/16" bit also but I am going through a different company NOT Drill America.

Good buy for the price
Perfect for the lathe and repetitive holes.

you won't be disappointed.
If you are looking it this bit, then you must have a press with the taper. If you need this size, you won't be disappointed.

An excellent bit at a very good price
Any time you are drilling over 1/2" this is the way to go. An excellent bit at a very good price.

Wonderful for drill larger holes to accept boring bars
I have three of these for my lathe's tailstock. Wonderful for drill larger holes to accept boring bars. Accurate and sharp. I touch up the end with a diamong\d hone once in a while.

Maybe it is only for wood?
Bits will not hold an edge for more than 4 holes through 3/16" mild steel. I have used and sharpened bits of many kinds for 40 years and have never had one this pathetic.

Worth the money. I use it for aluminum only, though. However, the price is right and it cuts well.
