As I understand it, if you're going straight in, you should use a spiral cutter. A straight-bladed one won't clear the cuttings out, and is really intended for cutting perpendicular to the shank. I wouldn't like to say it's universal, but I know my straight-bladed bits won't even cut a small circle directly under the end of the bit, in line with the shank.topconker":3cepihmu said:Just had a thought, can I use any straight router bit to bore the hole if I use the router method? ( In other words just use it as a drill).

Any idea where I can get one as I've checked e-bay with no luck.
