Local hardware stores (including the big guys) carry metric parts with metric instructions. This requires the right metric bit unless a bigger, sloppy hole is okay. In my case, I was trying to install 15mm cam screws to hold pieces of a bed together. This required a 15mm Forstner bit which is available nowhere but online. I bought this set just for that bit, hoping the other bits would be useful as well.

As I also used 3/8" hex head bolts with 1" washers, I needed to countersink the washer and nut combo to make it flush. My 1" SAE bit was too tight. The 26mm bit in this kit was perfect. I plan on using the 35mm bit for some concealed hinges on my next project.

My only complaint with this set is that the bits are not quite as sharp as they could be with what looks like small chips on the edges, but I didn't want to spend $550 for some of the German sets I've seen. Overall, using them in a drill press with even pressure worked quite nicely and did the job I needed.

Note: When are we as Americans going to get with the program and go metric so we don't have to buy two sets of everything?

No cheap, not expensive. These work pretty well, I even free handed some holes with some of the smaller bits, and got no chatter at all. Can't say how long they will remain sharp, but these are not carbide.

I got exactly whats in the picture, a simple plastic bubble case/wrap. It's no wooden case, but it's fine and reopenable.
I you need a specific size for heavy use, get that one in carbide, but this is a good set for occasional use.

Probably the best forstner bit set I own although for the life of me I can't find what steel these are made from.....Carbon...HSS....I know they are not carbide.....no information on the well made heavy duty case or on the bits either. I hate when all information is not available including where they are made. There is no made in country imprint so they are made in USA? I would think they would be proud of that fact and let you know.

Was happy when I recieved these bits because the case was a lot nicer than I was expecting. Also have used just about every bit so far and they cut great. Just as nice as a lot of the over priced sets out there.

This CMT metric forstner bit set is just what the doctor ordered for cabinet work. European cup hinges usually require a 35mm bit, but there are alternate sizes on the market. Also, the drawer face attaching mechanisms require yet another metric bit.

Rather than buying these things individually, CMT has put together a very nice set.

Thanks, guys!

I purchased this product expecting it to come with a case as pictured. The set arrived in a bubble pack. The bits themselves are fine, but very disappointed about not getting the case with it.

Seems like a decent set, but it does NOT come in the protective case pictured in the photo. It came in a bubble pack. Now I have to make something, at at this price that makes me cranky.
