Surprised at the quality
I was really surprised at the quality of this bit. It cut clean and accurate for a 8" deep hole. I would buy others. Would like to see an offering for a 10" extension accessory.

Excellent but boring
I remember when Forstner bits were a novelty. It's hard to imagine living without them now. My one regret is buying them one at a time. I would have saved a lot of money by springing for a matched set, at least for the 3/8 - 1 1/4" sizes in 1/16" increments. As years go by with regular use, I think I'd be happier if I'd invested in the tougher alloy steel.

great Forstner bits
These work just as well as my Freud bits. These are pictured with a serrated outer edge but the 11/16 and 13/16 inch bits I received have a non-serrated edge which is preferable for my application.

I need to cut four 1 3/4 inch holes through a 2 inch walnut slab....would this be a good bit ?....or...what would be my best alternative ?.... thanks
Billy S on Dec 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Can you use this drill press or a electric drill?? One method is using a rabbiting bit in your router. Take a 1/2 in rabbit bit. Start with a 3/4 inch hole you will end up with a 1 3/4 inch rabbitted hole. Use a flush trim bit to make the hole all one size. I would use this method and make a 3/4 inch pattern. Use smaller bits to rough out the waste and use the jig for the final diameter. Hope this helps
will it cut a hole in aluminum?
corvair on Jan 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Forster bits are for wood, not metal. I use Rota Broach hole saws for metal
What is the length of a 7/8" forstner bit ?
A shopper on Aug 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: All the individual bits around three inches. They also make an extention bar that is about three or four inches long so that will give you about six depth. Dave

I need a 6mm forstner bit. 1/4 inch is 6.35mm. I need exactly 6mm? Thanks.
Chris W on Apr 28, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you project needs a tighter tolerance than 13 thousands. There are 6 mm brad points for pen sets that should cut smooth enough. Best options I see. On that small a bit a Forstner will not cut any cleaner than a brad point bit
