Excellent Value Forstners!
I bought this set as a gift for my son and have only seen and handled it upon opening the box. I haven't see them in actual operation, but their quality looks good! It is a very nice set!

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.
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.
