I bought this particular bit to countersinking Harley Davidson dealer poker chips into wood and it is perfect and cuts very, very cleanly.

I bought this bit to bore holes in railroad ties.I was concerned that the ties would be too hard to bore through, but it went through like butter. Easiest part of the job.

It is well worth a couple extra dollars for this bit. I'm kicking myself for using cheap Forstner bits all this time. Holes are bored with surgical precision. The bottom and wall of the hole are 220-grit smooth -- no sanding necessary. Just buy it. You won't be disappointed.

This bit arrived very quickly from the seller. I used it to bore holes using my cordless drill. It bored the holes effortlessly and smoothly. Would recomment this bit to anyone needing to make smooth quick holes.

Bought these to replace some that I damaged. Original ones were from a kit I purchased at Costco, and these Freud bits are of a much better constructed quality.
