Product Details

Unlike saw tooth bits that have a series of cutting teeth, Forstner bits have a fully sharpened cylindrical cutting rim. This ensures that the wood fibres are not torn and as such leaves a superior finish to the workpiece. Forstner bits will leave clean sided, clean bottomed holes in hard woods, soft woods and composite materials.

The side walls of the bits are fractionally back tapered to reduce friction and jamming in the workpiece. The lower friction reduces the risk of burning and allows the bit to be run at a higher speed making cutting much faster and more efficient. It also has the extra benefit of keeping the bits sharper for longer.

Supplied in a solid wood presentation box the set consists of 15 bit diameters: 10, 12, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 26, 28, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50mm. Made from high carbon steel the bits can be sharpened using a fine stone or file. All the bits have an overall length of 90mm.

John Rawlin

I bought this set last week and I am very pleased. The cutting heads are very precise having checked the diameters on my micrometer. The resultant holes are clean sided and flat bottomed even when boring in soft wood. In hardwood I reduce the speed to ensure that they do not run too fast and burn the face of the wood. Overall an excellent set of forstner bits that are at a very sensible price.
