Tungsten Carbide Tipped Forstner Bit Set - Metric 5 Piece
This set contains five Forstner bits with industrial grade micro grain tungsten carbide spurs and cutting edges. They will drill fine, perfect diameter holes in softwoods, all hardwoods, MDF, coated and non coated chipboard and many plastics. The tungsten tips feature a fractionally tapered design which reduces friction in use and in turn reduces heat build up in the cutter and prolongs the life of the cutting edge. Their design makes them cut quickly and aggressively and are the perfect cutters for abrasive materials such as composites. Precision crafted to give an absolute diameter hole, these cutters may be used in a hand held drill or with a bench mounted drill.
Extra Long Auger Bit Set
- 6 Piece x 460mm
