I use slower speeds when using my chuck and bits, for drilling. Small bits need faster speeds, but larger ones benefit from very slow speeds and slow feeding when turning spindles and knobs. My 2-cents.

Thanks Mike,
I once saw a video on youtube about drilling with an auger bit. But the guy didn’t mentioned anything about speeds. What speed would you recomend for drilling a 1” inch hole with an aprox. of 15” depth?

Thank you for your time Mike!
