Bosch Daredevil auger bits for most wire runs and Milwaukee for the big trunk line holes.
I came into this game for the action, the excitement. Go anywhere, travel light, get in, get out, wherever there's trouble, a man alone.

I like the Bosch DareDevil bits, too.

But before anyone gets carried away with boring large holes through framing members, be sure to know the codes for where you can drill, where you can notch, and how large of a hole or notch you can make. There are many variables including the type of framing (stud, truss, rafter etc), the type of lumber (LVL or other engineered lumber, fir, pine etc), the code in your area and manufacturers specifications.

This will get you started:

This could be one of the most expensive mistakes somebody could make!

MKE self-feeding and Irwin Speed Bore wood boring bits, to replace spade bits (I gave up on those). The Speed Bore flutes can be touched up with a good file if they hit nails or screws and they come with lifetime warranty. I also have extensions for both types.
My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."
