These Roman Carbide® Forstner Bits are some of the nicest Forstner bits available! Micro-grain carbide cross tips and center cutters stay sharper longer, for years of dependable service when drilling hard and soft woods, face grain, end grain, and figured grain. Carbide cross-tips and center-cutters also provide smoother, chatter-free, and faster cutting results. Hex shanks guarantee no slipping, unlike round shanks, which result in scarring and diminished accuracy. Hex shanks fit 3/8” drill chucks. Includes 1/4" through 2-1/8" Forstner Bits in 1/8" increments.

Bought this set after reading reviews about other bits problems. Not sharp out of the box, round shank instead of hex, etc. I kind of winced at the price, but experience has thought me that you usually get what you pay for. I am very pleased to say they are going to be a good investment. I bored 216 holes, 2 1/8th, in birch veneer plywood Today. The last hole cut just as well as the first. Defiantly would buy this item again.

Nice Carbide set at a good price 01/11/2019 8:30:47 PM

I replaced my carbon steel set with this Carbide set, and the bits seem to work well. No more dull bits ! !. Only wish they had individual plastic covers like my carbon steel sets. The bits tend to move around in the box when you place it on it's side. Otherwise, a nice set of bits.

I bought this to make intricate shapes needed to repair trim work in my old family home. The bits work very well. I now discover that I need a more powerful drill press.

Great set of bits. Complete size range. Carbide tips so they cut fast and clean and stay sharp.

This is my first experience with forstner bits, but they seem pretty good. They cut true and the sizes are engraved on the bit shank. I'm sure there are better bits out there, but for the price I feel these are a great value.

Carbide forstner bit set 05/18/2017 1:25:20 PM

Bought this product to drill out lathe boxes. Bits cut very well through hardwood. Needed to contact customer service with this purchase. They provided world class support. Refreshing to see these days.

This is the next generation of Forstner Bits. The designer knew what was wrong with the existing ones and designed Forstner Bits for the 21st century wood worker.
