Our high-carbon steel Forstner Bits are the top pick for smooth, flat-bottomed holes with clean sidewalls and no tearout. Forstner bits are exceptionally useful for angled drilling, overlapping holes, or whenever a precise diameter is essential. The outer cutting edge slices through the perimeter for an accurate, well-defined hole every time, while the center brad point ensures accurate placement without wandering. Perfect for doweling, mortising, pocket holes, cup hinge installation and more. Also available in metric sizes (sold separately).


Features:

  • Pre-sharpened high-carbon steel drill bits for clean holes in any type of wood
  • Produces exceptionally smooth sidewalls, with no surface tear-out
  • Results in a flat-bottomed hole—ideal for Euro-style cup hinges and other hardware installation
  • Center brad point for easy hole location and no wandering

What is the trick to using Forstner bits so they do not burn the wood?
DAVID H on Dec 21, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Speed, make sure your drill press is set to the correct rpm for the bit size and type of wood and you may need to adjust your plunge rate. Not only too fast a plunge rate can burn, but also too slow. Use short in and out strokes to clear the bit. Sometimes may need to stop and clear by hand. This is especially true on soft woods.
