Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for the price Bought these for the 35mm bit to drill holes for tealights. They are fine for soft wood but I drilled three holes in oak and they really struggled and were visibly blunted by the third hole. For the price and if you're not going through anything hard then they're fine! Otherwise buy a really good quality bit.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fine Forstners Used one of these for drilling holes for cam locks. Works perfectly so far and better than some Forstner bits I have had in the past. Cannot give five stars because I've not had them long enough to know how they last.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wouldnt drill 1/4 inch Absolute rubbish. Side flutes were burred out. Drilling for a minute (two attempts) only made a hole 1/4" deep. Very cheaply made. Starting middle pin was a square !!

Answer: 
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.

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
