It's a good set all the bits that I would need. I used a few and they cut through the wood in no time, they were very sharp.

Excellent Forstner Bit Set
I needed to drill a larger (1") flat bottomed recess for a switch. The Forstner bit did the job perfectly. The set came in a very nice hard plastic box (black). All of the bits are well marked on the bit and on the box.

High quality
This is a replacement. I lost this exact set in the Camp Fire in Paradise California in Nov 2018. My old set served me well and so far this set seems to be just as good.
