Drill holes with smooth, straight sides and flat-bottom holes. Ideal for cup hinges, mortises, doweling, hardware installation, or finishing up your turned salt & pepper shakers. Forstner bits also can do things that other drill bits simply can't, such as drilling precise overlapping holes and angled holes. These high carbon steel Forstner Bits have two bottom cutting edges that cut side grain or end grain for smooth, accurate holes. A center brad point and the outer sharpened rim keeps your drill in position. Also available in metric sizes.


Features:
  • Cut smooth, clean sides and flat bottom holes
  • Ideal for cup hinges, mortising and doweling
  • Great for cutting deep holes in turned salt and pepper shakers
  • Constructed of high carbon steel with two bottom cutting edges that cut face grain or end grain
  • Center brad point and outer sharpened spur eliminate wander

Forstner bit
I bought the correct size bit to make a proper size hole for the speaker kit. It is the right one, but it's larger and takes more care than a smaller bit. A drill press, and backing wood as well as a well clamped subject piece are NECESSARY---Caution when cutting as always is IMPORTANT!
