very short but well ground
Well made bit but much shorter shank than what a standard length should be. Probably should have gone with Freud.

An OK value for short No of hinges
I purchased the Metric Forstner to repair a couple of cabinet doors for a customer. A quick inspection showed that the edges had many burrs. Had to clean up with a diamond hone prior to use.
After that, it performed has required. I would not use for any sort of production.
As stated in the title, An OK value for short use.

35mm Forstner bit
I bought this for installing Euro hinges. It is well machined and appears to be a good bit but on closer inspection, this is by far the dullest "out of the package" tool I have ever bought. It would cut butter as is, but only if you heated it first. Shameful. It can't be used without sharpening it first.

If you are buying this bit...
If you are buying this bit (like I did), thinking that it will fit inside it the Jig-it, you will be mistaken. Look for forstner bits with long shanks intead.
