Rated 4 out of 5 by Great product I works really well and cuts wood really well as long as you take your time 9 Sep 2016
Rated 2 out of 5 by Spike/tip on bits are too long The spike/tip on the bits are too long, especially the larger sizes. Meaning that by the time you have drilled a hole to to thickness of the drill bit the tip comes through the other side of the door! (The door was 3-5mm thicker than the drill bit). The tips need to be much shorter to make these useful for drilling hinge holes in doors. Other makes have shorter tips on the Forster bits. 2 Sep 2016

Answer: 
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
