  • Can make partial arcs and end grain holes

  • Makes flat bottom holes and pocket holes

  • Overall length is 3-1/2" long with 3/8" shank

  • Can be used with WoodRiver 3/8" Forstner Bit Extensions

    Sometimes standard forstner bits just don't work. A 13/16" bit worked great.

    Comments about WoodRiver 13/16" Forstner Bit :

    Ok, this is a good bit. It bores well, it clears the wood shavings well, it does everything a forstner bit should do. My problem with this bit is it is what Woodcraft recomends to bore the hole with for the egg scope kit. The blank is 2 3/8", the bit, seated in the chuck is 2". Anyone else see the problem? And no, i am not going to just turn it over and bore from both sides. I have a drill press for acuracy. Close enough is not good enough. If it were, high end tools would be a waste of time, now wouldn't they? To bore the hole all the way through, you need to only put about half the shank of the bit in your drill chuck. I know its not that big a deal, but wouldn't it just be a whole lot easier to make the shank about 1/2" longer? Do they not test the items they recomend on what they recomend them for? I dunno. Its a fine bit. But it is also not good for the job they recomend it for. As far as recomening it to a friend, No for egg scope, yes for just boreing.
