Awesome bits.
Great price, excellent quality. I’ve bought individual bits in the past and paid as much for 1 as I did for this set. Rockler now needs to offer an affordable and quality set 1 1/8” through 2 1/8” by 1/8” increments. I will buy one of them as soon as available.

Forstner Bit Set
I do not use Forstner bits often so I purchased a cheap set several years ago. When I saw the set from Rockler, I decided to purchase a quality set. I have used it only once, but the difference between the Rockler set and my cheap set is like night and day. Good quality product and nice storage case.
