    I've used this bit on over 300 spot welds, and has done a fine job. You can get a bit extension at some hardware store, to get into tight areas. I've just ordered my second bit. but I will try to get the original one sharpened.

    The tool was nicely made, but requires too much force to use with a hand drill. I'm sure it would work fine with a magnetic base drill press or in a vertical mill. The other problem is that the centering point drills through the underlaying sheet that you are trying to save. I ended up drilling a 3/16 pilot and then using a step drill.
    Great tool for the job!! (Posted on 6/30/12)

    I had one previously that seemed to be getting dull after maybe 25-30 cuts. Couldn't find it for this job (DOH!!), as it's been a few years, so I ordered another. Agree with others that it could be longer. BUT....nonetheless, it's the tool for the job!!

    This bit takes out spot welds with great accuracy and seems to hold the cutting edges well.
    It definitely needs to have a 1" longer shank, however, for tight spot welds.

    Tool works well, and seems to be made well. Wish the shank was a little longer though.

    This tool cuts the spot weld well. I found that the tool walked when trying to start the cut. I overcame this by first making a small start hole with a #3 center drill. I found that some recessed places could not be reached and a longer shank would have helped. The steel and heat treating quality seems very good. I have only made about 25 cuts and the toll seems to be staying sharp.

    The drill does an excellent job cutting away the upper spot of the weld. The weld separates easily once the upper panel is drilled. The only downfall I experienced was the short length of about 1-3/4" inches. Once in the chuck it was difficult to have 1" of bit extending from the drill. Several times in close areas the drill chuck was too close to get the weld cutter onto the spot. The drill needs to be perfectly straight to drill. A length of 2-1/2" or longer would be nice.
