I am not sure about some of the comments I read, bits not being sharp, off center, hard to get out of the case, etc. I use my set quite regularly and have found them to be better than many of the single bits I have purchased for a lot more money. I use them to hollow out duck decoys made of Jelutong, Basswood, and Sugar Pine. While certainly not precision work, they work very well. Check the speed at which they are turning, too fast means they will not work well. Lower speeds are a much using a fortsner bit. I have also use them on a lathe with some very hard wood. (maple, cocobolo, and desert ironwood). The work well with the extreme hard woods as well as softer woods, but again, the speed is the key. As for the irregularities noted by some, I would suggest a diamond stick to dress up any irregularities and to keep them razor sharp. Usually only have to do this once. As for the case, yes they fit snugly in the case and are not easy to get out, but I don't want my tools in a case that allows them to fall out or rattle around. Over all very happy with them, and for the price they are a great value.

Seams like a nice set of forstner bits. I bought them on sale so for the price there great. Great selection of sizes. I already have a 16 piece set so this set will fill in the gaps. I've only used one of them to help hollow a bowl I was working on and it cut thru the mahogany nicely.
