6-Pc. Fractional Forstner Bit Set
6-Pc. Fractional Forstner Bit Set

Drill holes that have extremely smooth sides, a flat bottom, and no surface tear-out. High carbon steel bits are perfect for doweling, mortising, pocket holes, hardware installation and more! Cleanly cut through side grain, end grain - even knots, plywood and composites.


Features:
  • Great for instrument mounting, cutting arcs, overlapping holes, and boring through veneer or other thin materials
  • Bits have two bottom cutting edges that efficiently shear through wood
  • Exterior cutting rim, along with the inner brad point, keeps the bit in position on the workpiece. As the rim cuts the outside "circle," the bit's two bottom edges quickly cut out the inner wood
  • Wide flute openings allow for fast chip removal
  • Unique tapered rims help prevent burning
  • Pre-sharpened and ready to use in any type of wood
  • For use with a drill press or hand drill
  • Comes in durable plastic case

6 piece forstner
I purchased the 22 piece Forstner set years ago from Rockler; when I saw that the 6 piece set, I knew it was what I was missing. Thanks

Fill out my other 1/4 inch set with this 1/16th increment set.
James S on Apr 5, 2018
I needed a new forstner bit set having bit at fractions. These are usually not found on basic forstner bit sets. In addition, I viewed the associated video. Since I am a long-time customer, the Rockler name has earned my complete trust.

I chose this item because of what I know about Rockler's reputation for its tools and the consistent quality that I anticipate in these forstner bits for my upcoming woodworking projects and it's the only set of fractional forstner bits, I've found at this affordable price.

Purchasing the 6 Piece and 16 Piece sets together is less expensive than the 22 Piece set, but you get all the same bit sizes, as long as you don't mind having 2 boxes of bits.
Nicolas B on Apr 28, 2017
Specific fractional sizes neded 5/16 and 11/16 plus the cost for the set was reasonable.

BEST ANSWER: They are made in China.
Do you make 1 1/2"?
A shopper on Jul 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Rockler does make a 1 1/2 " bit and can be ordered separately. It has a 3/8 " shank.
Where is this made? USA or overseas?
