Product Information:

This 1-3/8" bit is part of a line of imported Forstner bits that Woodcraft has tested and found to cut clean and not burn even when testers intentionally subjected them to quick, repetitive drill press borings. The bit has a saw-toothed edge to keep the larger cutting edge cool while boring. An exceptional value for the hobbyist or occasional user. 3/8" shank

    Comments about 1-3/8" Forstner Bit :

    Your experience may differ from mine. The bit I received had a very hard time drilling 3/4" deep holes in Baltic Birch plywood. I only needed to drill three holes but half way through the second hole I gave up. I inspected the bit and saw a discoloring at the edge of the Chip Breakers, which suggests I overheated the bit and it lost it's temper. I didn't have another bit if that size, so I sharpened it with slip stones and finished my three holes. It cut well after my sharpening. I believe the bit I purchased had a unexceptionably low heat tolerance. All the reviews on these WR bits I read were very positive but my experience was quite negative.
