Forstner bit set
I cannot believe how many years I have used spade bits and hole saws and thought they were sufficient. Changing to Forstner bits is a "hole" new level of capability. I highly recommend these to anyone looking to advance their skills and quality.

A very good set for the money. I have used two of the bits, and they cut very well. I do a variety of hobby projects, so it's nice having a large assortment of bits to work with.

Nice set.
I have needed a new set of bits for a long time. My other set was not "cutting it" anymore. I am very pleased with this set. I have only drilled for hidden hinges in oak doors so far. It made little wood ribbons without any chatter. Nice plastic case to keep them organized and the price was right.

Drill me baby!
When needed a Forstner bit is a must and this set gives me the excellent hole drilling capabilities and lots of sized to choose from. All seem to cut very smooth walls and straight cuts.

I saw an Instagram post from George Vondriska of WWGOA telling everyone how impressed he was with this product he had just bought and how great a bargain it was at its sale price. He explained his post was not a paid add, but rather a referral of something he really liked and thought others may also.<br />I agree, this looks like a great deal. I look forward to having this in my shop.

These Forstner bits are incredible for clean cut holes with extreme accuracy. I have used these bits before, but needed to replace my old set from a different manufacturer. This set is made of much higher quality. I love the size marked case also.

I chose the 22 piece forstner bit set because it was an incredible deal. If you use this kind of bit then you understand how important it is to have sharpe bits in every size for precise drilling.

What is the usable length of the shaft? I need to go through 2" of soft pine.
Crazy T on Jun 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The shanks on these bits range from 2-3/4" to 3" so you should have plenty
What is the maximum speed of operation in a drill press for these Forster bits?
My lowest speed is 540 rpm
Butch on Oct 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Forstners are designed to run slow. Larger bits around 700 or below, smaller bits not above 1200. Slow is best though.
Can you please tel me if you stock a set of Fostner bits with metric values?
Please help.
Jacques M on Jul 14, 2019
Can these Forstner Bits be used with hand-held drills or only with drill presses?
Anthony D on Apr 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, you can use them with hand held drills. Just make sure to go slow and use the low speed option on the drill, especially for the larger bits.
What level of quality would you rate these Forstner bits? Do they need frequent sharping?
HANS S on Jun 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I've only used the same 6 or so bits, but they were perfect out of the case. I mostly work with sapele (very hard) and Spanish cedar (relatively soft but very resinous). So far after several uses I haven't had to sharpen, only take the pitch off with bit cleaner. I had ordered a Forstner sharpening kit just in case, as they eventually will need to be sharpened.
Where are bits made? China?
Pete C on Nov 5, 2019
BEST ANSWER: These bits are made in China.
country of origin ?
steve b on Sep 30, 2019
