Just bought one. Set the drill press at 250RPM and it cut fine no burning or smoking
Bit does what it should do, cuts a hole. Best results if used properly. In response to the previous review saying the bit smokes. Yes, it will smoke if you spin it at too high of a speed. ANY bit will smoke if you spin it too fast. If you do some research, ANY Forstner bit 2" or larger should be spun at 250RPM. I used this information and what do you know...no smoke! Yes, the bit is made in China, but it is sharp and very well made.
I drilled one hole in 1/2 Oak. It drilled a nice hole but looks like it dulled the bit enough I dont think it will be able to drill another hole. Infact it was smoking when I finished the one hole. I think it was made in China. I would be interested in purchasing one from the USA.
