I was hesitant to spend that much on a single drill bit as normally i just buy the sets, but this is by far the best drill bit I own and makes quick work of drilling out pen blanks!! Totally worth the money.
These bits are the best that I have ever used on pens or anything else for that matter. They clean themselves of chips VERY quickly; I had to back out only at the bottom 1/4 of the blank. They are very sharp and track true. Whether in the drill press or the lathe no other bit comes close to their performance. I HIGHLY recommend these for anyone who turns pens.
The Fisch bits are my favorite. They are always top notch, come very sharp and do a great job on pen blank drilling. Rockler's price is good and they keep a decent selection. My only gripe is that there is not a wider selection.
