I have a super-cheap porter cable set too, but recently I needed to drill several 1-1/8” holes. I bought Amazon’s cheapest (CMT brand), which couldn’t even cut. I returned it and bought the Freud PB (Precision Shear) bit – it worked like a dream. Plowed 1.5” deep in red oak in my cheap DP, in a single plunge – didn’t even have to back out for chips.
