Review for Armeg wood beaver stubby bit set by M J J Stannard Electrical
30th September 2020

Had a set of these for a couple of years and they’ve been great! Being stubby you don’t usually have much trouble drilling a nice straight hole when working up between joists or under floorboards. When they’re brand now the absolutely eat through timber. Quite expensive but reasonably hard wearing, they do say they are nail proof but I always try to avoid that as much as possible to prolong their life

These bits are awesome for what they are - it they are almost like disposable blades - they go blunt very very quickly - so definitely not worth the money

Great set of bits, with an SDS adapter thrown in for good measure. Built to last and definitely my first option for running cable through joists.

I love using the mini augers that go straight in the impact driver and make easy work of hole drilling. I have the nail proof ones and they last better.

The wood beaver is amazing! These drill bits eat through joists for cable runs. I’ve had the same bits for about two years now and they’re definitely worth their weight in gold. The only sign that they’ve had some use is that they need a little extra pressure to get through the other side once the self feed screw bit is out, other than that I wouldn’t even know. Would highly recommend these bits!

For drilling through joist for new cable runs this product is fantastic. It’s short length enables access even when space is t at a premium. They have remained sharp through multiple use and I continue to use frequently

They got through wood pretty quickly and the length is helpful. They didn't seem to last long considering the price though so I tend to use other options.

Great hole bits for going through joists all day long. Shorter length helps getting in between the joists to allow straight drilling. We’re sharp and sharp and the thread to start gets you started easy.

One of the best wood beavers I've used. Although they do seem to blunt quicker than some on old joists. Keep them sharp and they will pull through the joist quickly. The short compact size is also a plus, allowing you to get into enclosed spaces. Definitely use with an impact driver.

Wow can these chew through wood, forget impact flat blades, once these bite they just go. Makes a huge difference when you have multiple beams/joists to drill, so fast and clean cuts. Never will buy flat blades again!

Have used these for a few years as the eat up joists. They are really useful and easy to use for drilling lots of holes in joists to run cabling through. They do however blast through the other side of the hoist but that is no problem as it’s always out of sight. I use to use normal spade bits but they went blunt very quickly and needed pressure to be consistently applied where as these pull themself through the joist

Nice quality bits very sharp. You just have to be careful when they snag. Nearly breaks your wrist if your not concentrating haha. But they do the job and if you hit a nail it normally pounds straight through them.

Been using these now for a while, again with Armeg they are on the pricey side but compared to how many flat wood bits they out perform in reality the price is not that bad, ideal as it's stated for drilling joists when pulling cables as they allow for my drill to drill horizontal straight holes most of the time due to their length allowing for the drill to fut between joists. Good piece of kit and would highly recommend.

Had a set of these for a long time now, great bits when new and so easy to go through joist, avoid nails as this will stuff them right up! the price has crept up over the years and they are a bit on the pricey side now, so you have to weigh it up if you use them every day a few times then they may be right for you? If you only use this sort of bit once in a while then a cheap flat wood bit may be better as you can pick these up at toolstation for around a quid!!

Brilliant set of drill bits. After 6 months the 20mm bit is starting to get a bit blunt but all the others are still going strong. Nice and quick to drill a row of holes. Just have to watch the recoil on your drill when it's on high torque with these bits as it can catch and spin your drill around if your not gripping it tightly.

Well made auger type drill. Stubby size is useful. However the centre threaded tip is to efficient and screws the drill cuttiers to the wood so tightly it can cause it not to cut into the surface but spin over it. The price is somewhat high when its efficiency is not always on point.
