Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great! I needed to bore holes in cupboard doors to affix reclaimed brass handles, the bolts of which were too short to fit the doors. I wasn't sure how to do this neatly so looked on YouTube and discovered Forstner bits. Straight round to Screwfix and bought this little set. They're great! Did the job easily and I've also used them on another job. They come in a tough box with individual slots to keep them separate. Very pleased with my purchase!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Suprisingly good! At the low price for 5 forstner bits I wasn't expecting much in the way of quality and performance, but they suprised me. The task was to fit concealed cam dowels in a plywood work bench the smallest bit was used for the blind holes and after a couple of tests the correct depth and position was established. The holes bored were of a consistent diameter and the waste quickly ejected from the holes. A good product at a great price especially for a seldom used tool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy way to fit kitchen doors Bought these Forstner bits as I was sick of ditching kitchen cabinet doors because the hinge holes were in the wrong place. These bits are so easy to use as long as you don't go too deep. I will never fear fitting kitchen cabinet doors again.

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
