These carbide-tipped Forstner bits outlast typical carbon steel bits.



7-Pc. Carbide Tipped Forstner Bit Set

Our carbide tipped Forstner bits are designed to work long and hard even in the toughest material like MDF and plywood. The carbide cutting edges on these premium-quality bits will last up to 20x longer than carbon steel bits. The aggressive shear angle produces fast chip ejection leading to repeatedly smooth and clean cuts, even on tricky cross-grain and angled cuts. Each bit is 3-1/2"-long and features a hex-shank design for non-slip performance. Comes in a sturdy wooden case. A good value for every woodworking shop.

For use in a drill press or lathe only. Not for use in portable drills.

This set includes 7 bits in the following diameters:

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

What is the shank size on these bits? Why couldn’t the smaller bits be used in a portable drill? I have used large bits of this type in a large portable angle drill to bore holes for plumbing in framed walls. I have to drill out some teak deck bungs on a wooden boat and cannot use a drill press for that job. Any better suggestions?

Dear Sir/Madam
we want to purchase 2 inches diameter carbide Forstner drill bits.
Also, we want to know if we can drill a flat bottom hole in the concrete using these carbide Forstner bits?
Best Regards,
