2-3/8" High-Carbon Steel Forstner Bit
This 2-3/8" 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. This bit has a saw-toothed edge to keep the larger cutting edge cool while...

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.
