Forstner Bits are the most accurate and versatile of all wood bits. They cut extremely smooth and clean flat-bottomed holes in any species of wood, even in thin stock or veneers. We cannot emphasize enough how happy you will be with these. Includes: 1/4", 3/8", 1/2", 5/8", 3/4", 7/8", round-shank bits, and 1", 1-1/8", 1-1/4", 1-3/8", 1-1/2", 1-5/8", 1-3/4", 1-7/8", 2", 2-1/8" saw-toothed hex-shank bits. Shank size is 3/8". Comes with a nice wood storage box.

Hex shanks on larger bits prevent slippage, shank scarring, and wobble caused by poor chucking.

Good Value 1/19/2016

While these are obviously not super-nice bits they get the job done. For someone building a shop (like me) this was a good starter set. The steel doesn't seem to be of great quality as they've corroded a bit and don't stay sharp for a long time. But they do sharpen up easily enough with a flat diamond paddle.

They ship with a sticky anti-corrosion coating on them so I'd recommend cleaning them off when you get them.

Good bits for the price 3/1/2016

I bought a few Chinese-made bits (CMT, Porter-Cable, Irwin) recently to complete a woodworking project. They ranged in price from $10 - $20 each and had to be deburred and sharpened before use. I wasn't happy about the extra work, but I lived with it because the only alternative were the expensive bits from Germany or Austria. This Steelex set is a bargain at $42 for 16 bits and the quality is as good as any other Chinese-made bit I tried. The wooden box is very nice. Yes, I did have to spend a little time with some files tuning each bit and honing the cutting edge. However, a $400 European set was not in my tool budget.
