Forstner bit sets
Bought both sets in order to have one of each increment. Seem well made and the boxes make them safely stored away. Have used one size in particular for Beads Of Courage jars and found them sharp enough to cut white tail deer antler without an issue.

Great bits!
These are exactly what I was wanting. Perfect for a beginner like me, but I don't know why they wouldn't be great for experienced workers as well.
