Description

Details

We're proud to introduce the COLT MaxiCut line of top quality Forstner Bits. These Forstners are unlike any others we've tried. They create such smooth entry and exit holes you have to see & feel it to believe it, even on end-grain and crosscuts.

Other benefits include:

  • Much faster cutting, less heat build up due to their patent-pending cutter design.
  • With a Rockwell hardness of 63 they remain sharp much longer than inferior quality cutters..
  • Works in cross grain and end grain, making it ideal for woodturners.
  • All bits feature a 3/8" RotaStop Shank System, eliminates slippage and shank damage.
  • Can be easily re-sharpened.

This 10-pc. set includes the following diameter COLT Five Star Forstner Bits:

  • 1/2"
  • 5/8"
  • 3/4"
  • 7/8"
  • 1"
  • 1-1/8"
  • 1-3/8"
  • 1-1/2"
  • 1-3/4"
  • 2"

Here's what the pro's have to say…

"The genius in these bits is that the cutting lip is designed to bust up the chips as they are severed. So you don't get big disc-shaped chips, which clog the works. Instead you get ribbon-like shavings, which eject easily, even from deep holes. We tried to overfeed this bit, and we failed. Bravo to Colt."
Christopher Schwarz, editor Popular Woodworking Magazine.

I bought your 10 bit set of Colt Maxi-cut Forstner bits. Every review I could find for these bits is great... I noticed that the packages all had the recommended speeds blacked out with a sharpie. When I used the 9/16" bit in face grain maple it burned and clogged up constantly. I slowed the drill press speed down, added a vacuum and some dry spray lube... still burning. I came in from the shop and looked up the spec. sheet with Infinity. It lists the speed to use the bit at 900 rpm's. Still burning. The blacked out package showed 1400 to maybe 1600 which is where I started. I put out a public question to folks that had bought the bits on Amazon, I got three replies, all said between 450 and 500 rpm's. Do you have any suggestions please? Do I need to sharpen all of these new bits before I use them? Do you have the correct sharpening "kit"? I spent $320 on ten bits. I'm fine with that if I can get the bits to live up to they're reputation.... please help. Thanks. Tedd in KS.
