This 1-1/2" 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...
- 1-1/2" Forstner bit
- Cuts clean; no burning when subjected to harsh treatment
- Makes flat bottom holes
- Can make partial arcs and end grain holes
- Does pocket holes
I use it to drill holes into my wood turnings. Lets say I need a hole that is 1.6" diameter, I use the forstner bit to get rid of most of the material tehn use a chisel to get rid of hte rest. It may be great for soft woods like Walnut etc. but for maple, it lacks sharpness to cut through the heavier woods. I would recommend this to friends, but for SOFT WOODS ONLY.
drill bit is sharp and runs true. good tool !!
