6-Pc. Fractional Forstner Bit Set

Item #

Rating:
92% of 100

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

1/16th inch Forstner bits
This is the perfect compliment to my 14 bit set that increments in 1/8 inch sizes. They look good and are machined well.

6-pc. Fractional Forstner Bit Set
I make wooden display case's for natural oil bottles with my Grand-daughter. I have found that the varying sizes of the bottles require a hole in a size (5/16 as an example) that is sometimes between an average size for the bottle to have a good fit in the hole. This set solves that problem for me. I would recommend this product to anyone, even if you do not require the use of a fractional bit size daily. You never know when you just might need one. I would like to see a fractional bit size set in above one inch.The people at Rockler are very helpful and knowledgeable.

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.<br />William
