Freud, as always, has made another nice product. Only 4 stars because, well, there is probably something nicer out there although I don't know what. Bit is wonderfully well machined and works great. I wish my drill press would go a little slower as I am really (at 700 rpm) turning it a bit fast. Wish all my bits were this nice.

It is what it is - at an ususual size, and an accessible price. Avoid overworking it in hardwood (walnut, cherry, and probably aged oak) - that's what the expensive ones are for. This will serve its purpose forever if used at the recommended speed, in a drill press, and cared for with common sense.

I can't say enough about Freud. I have found their products generally to have been well engineered and carefully crafted. This forstner bit is no exception! Notice the openings on both sides of the cutting head. They serve two functions. First the opening allows you to clearly see where you are lining up to drill. Secondly it very efficiently clears the hole of debris which helps facilitate excellent dust collection. The drill is very sharp and precise. The results are professional. If you are a perfectionist type you won't be disappointed. I have acquired a set of these ranging from 1/2" to 1-3/4" and I couldn't be more pleased with the results.

When buying tools, the adage "you get what you pay for" is never more true. This bit while a bit on the high side on cost, worked really well on 3/4" oak plywood. I used it to drill out holes for grommets on an entertainment center and the cuts came out really clean with no splintering. As with other forstner bits, its important to drill at the right speed and pressure so as not to overheat the steel and prematurely dull the cutting edge.

This drill bit is awesome! I was using a paddle bit before I bought this and it really struggled drilling through the treated lumber I used for my in-ground trampoline frame. Then I got this bit and it sliced through the beams like butter! It also makes a much more clean hole in the wood than the paddle bit. Highly recommend this bit for anyone thinking about purchasing it. Well worth the money!

Adding molding to the side of a staircase that has a bullnose step front. This is exactly the tool I needed to make the perfect hole to accommodate the bull nose. Built a jig for my drill press, cut the molding and the fit is fantastic. Much better than if I had tried with a jigsaw. Of course after 30 holes this forstner bit showed absolutely no wear. Highly recommend.

This is the best Forstner bit I have ever purchased. I used it to install cup handles in closet doors and the cuts are absolutely smooth. She knife like edge does not chip like a toothed edge does. I would highly recommend this bit.

Cut very clean into the cedar plank I was putting a coin into. Very sharp but i would not expect anything less from Freud. Have only used a couple times so I can't speak to how long it will stay sharp.
