This is the size you need to drill holes for euro hinges. Like all the Freud bits I have bought this bit comes very sharp, doesn t wobble and cuts clean holes as advertised. I am pleased with its performance and you can't beat the price. Speciallized bits for euro hinges are $75-$125 and are typically carbide tipped. If you were in the kitchen cabinet door business drilling hundreds of holes per week that would be neccessary, but in my small custom shop I only occasionally mount euro hinges and this bit works for me. Heck, its so cheep I'll probably buy a second one when I send this out to be reground ,which for me will be the day after it no longer cuts clean holes. Also this is not the bit for man made materials ie MDF, plywood, chip board. I use it only on hardwood styles- High speed steel wont go far in MDF!

Many years ago, for about eight bucks more than this bit cost, I bought a complete set of Fortsner bits in a nice wooden case. When the time came to actually use them, they were quite handy for determining the exact size I needed. Nothing else. Except for woodburning, they are essentially useless. It amazes me how they can produce a piece that looks exactly like the real thing, and then make their money by failing to put a worthy cutting edge on it.

This was before I truly learned about inexpensive imported cutting tools. When I had some serious paying work that required a few accurate borigns, I unhesitatingly bought Freud- while not a woodworker geek's ultimate high end, they are easy to find in big-box stores, and as I have learned, nothing cuts like a Freud.

Tools come in all kinds and sizes. Generally you get what you pay for. You can buy a whole set of crummy forstner drill bits, or you can collect the sizes you need in quality bits and you'll have tools that will last and last. After borrowing a titanium coated forstner in 1 3/8", a popular size for creating weight disks for pinewood race cars, I made up my mind to skip the junk and get Freud bits. I just needed 3 large sizes. For less than a set of junk bits, I have some beauties that cut sharp, stay sharp, and work clean. That titanium stuff looks great, but put a little heat on it, get it a little dull, and pretty soon you have something too oddly shaped for a paper weight, but about all its good for.

Cut nice, perfectly clean holes. Great buy, would not hesitate to purchase this brand again. Was the perfect fit for the cabinet door hinges I was mounting.

I purchased these bits for building cabinet doors with euro-hinges.

I am glad I purchased two of these as one of them was not the advertised size. Both packages were correctly labeled 1-3/8 but one of them was actually 1-1/4. I did not check the size before cutting my first hole, shame on me. I don't fault the seller, it was packaged that way.

Shipping was fast and the bits function perfectly. Just be sure to double check the size before you drill...

Good, solid, well-made Forstner bit. I used it for modifying several IKEA cabinets. I had to mount several of those weird Swedish hinges in places where they don't normally belong, and this bit is just the right size. If you try it, be careful not to drill through the wood. It's a close call.

The bit cuts just fine. No complaints.

Was hesitant to order a forstner bit for cup hinges because I don't have a drill press, but this bit with my 12V Craftsman Nextec driver are a perfect match. Made a simple jig with 1/2" plywood and cut through 6 pairs of hinges no problem. Building my own/first set of cabinet doors saved me $100's.

I bought a 1 3/8" bit from a big box store, brand new, and it could just barely drill through a piece of 3/4" maple. This Freud bit cut right through four of them with ease. It's taken me a long time to learn that quality is often more expensive, but well worth it! Highly recommend Freud.
