Rated 4 out of 5 by from Costner bits Used to drill 30mm holes in decking for decking lights. Holes kept clogging with shavings, so had to clear out a couple of times. Couple of decking ridges got splintered when drilling. Core cutter might have been better choice. Overall good performance

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Forstner bit set Had a project that required drilling six 30mm holes & one 25mm hole through 1cm thick MDF with fully charged cordless drill. Had no problems at all. Fully recommended.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Decent set of forstner bits Bought these when I needed to hang some cupboard doors. Worked really well. The cuts were made easily enough. Some signs of wear after 10 cuts, nothing to be upset about, as that bit isn't likely to be used again. Overall a great value set of bits.

Are these suitable for plasterboard? I need drill bits to go with http://www.screwfix.com/p/gripit-assorted-plasterboard-fixings-32-pcs/6165j

Asked by: Adie84
You'd be better off with a hole saw - or even a good old pad saw. Plasterboard will blunt just about any cutting edge it comes into contact with almost immediately. A Forstner bit would cut anyway. It would just tear its way through. They are meant for timber, mdf and melamine.

can it cut hinge out of 15mm conti,dont want point going through

Asked by: nickfreespirit
Hi Nickfreespirit, The control of depth of penetration of any drill hole is dependant wholly on the steadiness of the operators hands. This is especially so with Forstner drill bits. If you are trying to drill holes for kitchen cabinet hinges, then there are dedicated drill bits for this. They are Product Codes 13419 (26mm) and 11596 (35mm). I hope this information is of help to you
