    Not too sharp

    I ordered this 3 inch bit to cut holes for some clock inserts. Using it the first two times I was not impressed as it didn't seem to cut well. I have used it 4 times and the blade is already dull. I am piling up sawdust instead of shavings. Too expensive of a bit for this poor performance.

    Quick Waste Removal

    This works well to remove waste wood from wooden bowl and cup blanks. It makes a good clean cut. I would rather buy products made in the United States. I am not a big fan of Chinese manufactured products.

    Good Forstner bit

    I had to do some minor hand sharpening on the blades that cut the bottom of the hole. Using a drill press, it makes perfect holes with smooth bottoms. Time will tell how long it stays sharp.
