6-Pc. Fractional Forstner Bit Set

Drill clean, flat bottom holes with this high-quality high carbon steel 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

Handy set of bits
I use these fairly often. Nice to have the fill-ins beyond the standard diameters. They've worked well for everything I've used them for so far.

A nice addition to my 16 pc Rockler forstner bit set.
I bought this set to fill in the sizes my larger Rockler set doesn't have. I've only used a couple of sizes, but they worked well. I've owned my larger set for years and use it regularly. I've only needed to sharpen the 1/4" bit and had success using a small file and a diamond wheel on a rotary tool. I fully expect my new fractional set to perform as well as my larger set.

Great Forstner Drills
This something that was needed for a long time and helps with those between size requirements that so many us wood workers have use instead of an alternative.

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.
