Forstner Bit Set 5 Pieces
Needed a shallow point drill bit for a simple job, all my spade bits didn't fit the bill so I turned to screwfix who had the right bit at the right price, thank you

Bargain Forstner bits 5 sizes
I needed to make 25 and 30mm holes in thin board.
The holesaws I had were either too large or too small.
The Screwfix price for 5 Forstner bits was better than the price for 2 new hole saws so thought I would try them.
I used the Forstner bits in my battery drill
( an end of line bargain from Screwfix).
The bits were quick cutting and accurate. I found they cut better on a higher speed than I anticipated in the soft material I was working with.
Job well done thank you!

Barely usable on real wood
The cutting edge is too blunt and not at the right angle to deal with anything besides chipboard, MDF and low quality pine.
I bought these because of the 35mm drill bit so I can drill holes for 36mm dowels. Worked sort'a OK in pine.
Hemlock - forget it. Barely cutting through it, lots of travel and smoke if using an electric drill. I would not even think about drilling oak, maple or teak with this - you would either spend an afternoon for one hole with a hand drill or a disaster with an electrical.
This should bare the right name "chipboard drill bit set". It is not a set of bits for real wood.

Cheap and good for 1 job
Okay quality, cheap box, cheap made and only lasted on one job. For the price I would have expected better
