Rated 1 out of 5 by from Good for holes in cheese! For the price I wasn't expecting much. I only needed the 35mm bit for making some tea light holders in pine, after taking a couple of minutes to drill about 20mm deep with lots of smoke I had a good look at the bit, cutting edge burred so took it off with a fine file, the metal is so soft I could have used emery cloth. Very disappointed as I normally go for the cheaper stuff that I won't use much and generally find it worthwhile. Perhaps it's just a bad batch but it's going back tomorrow.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Splendid Needed to cut holes accurately and without passing right through the wood. These gave me exactly the tools needed and they performed beautifully. Good range of sizes and performed as they should

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice Clean Cut Nice clean cut, but requires a small pilot hole drilling first as the centre point will not cut otherwise.

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!

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
