cutout tool (yay or nay) Answered

I found drill bits that I can use on a drill (duh) that can cut wood sideways, like a cutout tool. would this be a good cutout tool alternative? or should I just get a cutout tool?

If your intent is to cut a large or odd shaped hole using a drill press, the side-cut bit is a great solution. If your intent is to cut complex shapes for your project, use a jig saw or band saw. If you're just cutting straight lines, use a table saw.
