Mar 16 '16 at 7:50 comment added Brian Thomas would definitely not work with a hole saw, i was referring to a standard bit, nothing special. a spade bit will work, but might mess up any hope of clean edges, a quick try in a 2x4 and you will know right away. Have no experience with these special bits(forstner), maybe this is why i know this will work with a standard bit, lol.
Mar 7 '16 at 20:15 comment added FreeMan Seems that this might work with a twist bit, essentially asking it to cut with the flutes as you angle the work piece up (or tip the drill over), but I don't think it would work well with a Forstner, spade bit or hole saw (as needed for the fairly large diameter hole required for OPs purpose), since they don't have cutting edges along their sides. Additionally, even with a twist bit, I'd imagine it would do more burning than cutting, as the flutes aren't usually very sharp since their job is to pull chips out of the hole, not create it. But, if it works for you...
