Product Details

This box set of 15 is our most popular set of forstner bits and includes 10, 12, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 26, 28, 30, 35, 40, 45, 50mm diameter bits, each with an overall length of 90mm and a 10mm round shank. These forstner sawtooth bits are made from a special grade of high carbon steel which is extremely hard wearing and retains its hardness over prolonged use, resulting in a bit that will not deform under heat and which will always keep the same cutting geometry, over its lifetime.

The rim of the forstner bit is a fraction of a millimetre higher than the chippers which results in the bit entering the wood cleanly, prior to the chippers clearing the wood. The double-chip channels means swarf is quickly cleared, minimising rim heat, allowing for clean cut, flat bottom holes in hard, soft and exotic woods. The teeth have a skewed geometry to ensure minimal fibre pull and tearing of the wood. The bits are back tapered from the cutting edge to reduce friction and prevent binding and have been fully ground to give precise concentricity to ensure a highly accurate hole. These bits are primarily used in a drill press or the tailstock of a lathe when boring end grain.

These premium forstner sawtooth bits give an exceptional drilling performance and come with a lifetime warranty - if any bit fails due to a material or manufacturing defect it will be replaced free of charge. Our choice in forstner bits sets for the discerning woodworker and woodturner. ©

Tracy Norfolk-shaw

well what a difference in cutting quality to a cheaper brand Ive been using five stars well deserved and comes in a wooden box great value

Rodney Palmer

Have used a limited number of sizes of cheaper makes but disappointed by the poor cutting edge and the burning due to the rubbing nature of the continuous rim. Needed additional sizes for finer work and for some wood turning demands so invested in the set of 15 cutters from 8-45mm dia. With their sawtooth edges, these cut cleanly, easily and accurately with no burning. Much of my work involves engineering tolerances and material combinations, the resulting hole sizes are surprisingly accurate and entirely acceptable. The smaller diameters, without the room for the multiple sawtooth edge, can get very hot with repeated drilling but have not caused burning as they cut so quickly. Excellent storage box. Very happy with this purchase.

Christopher Goode

Brilliant set of Forstner bits, you won't be disappointed. Tackles hard wood with ease and leaves a very clean hole edge. Very impressed

John Bowen

very impressed this is the first quality set i have owned. they cut so much easier and create a much cleaner hole

Yvonne Mitcheson-Banyai

Excellent product - works really well. Does what it says on the description. Very good quality and very happy with them

David K.

I have been working with Forstner bits for years now but came to my senses and bought these saw-tooth bits which deal with end grain with great ease. Good product and good performance!

Chris

Used a few of these now and they do the job well. Prompt delivery and well packaged. Would recommend.

Dale Harding

Bought a cheap set of Forstner bits from Amazon a couple of years ago, they were ok. But I have been promising myself a good set of sawtooth forstners ever since and these fit the bill. A nice wooden case finishes of the set. Mine did not come in a heap in the box either as quoted previously.

Robert Mitchell

Fabulous quality and leave a smooth precise hole, the box is an after thought though, the bits arrived all over the place due to lack of packing foam in the box, spoils an otherwise top package...

Mikel Sanderson

Top, top quality forstner bits! I haven't used all sizes but the ones I have are definitely amazing, they cut through oak like a hot knife through butter. Absolutely no burning of the wood, even when using at slightly higher speeds.

Andrew Wilson

Nice bits, very crisp finish with no tear out. Smart presentation box.
Echoing earlier comments, bits arrived in a heap in the box due to inadequate padding for transit. They were fortunately undamaged.

Chris Glew

Bits themselves seem very good, the wooden case is a nice touch though could use some improvement. When it arrived the bits had moved around a lot in transit and were all over the place inside the box. Luckily they didn't seem to have any damage to the cutting edges despite bashing against each other.

Not a problem unique to these, as the same thing had happened to the router bit set I ordered a while back. Better padding inside the packages during shipping would be appreciated!
