Until you try them, you won’t believe that a forstner bit can be this inexpensive and still perform this well. CMT resharpens top quality imported bits in their own Italian factory. That results in a top quality forstner bit at an affordable price. Guided by the rim rather than a center spur, Forstner bits bore flat bottomed holes which may be overlapped or may enter at odd angles. Use caution with small bits (3/8" to 5/8") because they do not have a great deal of space available for chip ejection. Bits over 7/8" have a saw tooth rim for improved performance. Made of High-Speed Steel, these bits stay sharp, and stay sharp longer than bits made of ordinary tool steel. Blanks are made in China. Includes sizes from 1/4" to 2-1/8" in 1/8" increments. Comes with plastic storage case.

About Me Professional
Comments about 16pc CMT Forstner Bit Set:
I opened the box and it looked as if somebody had used every one of these bits to drill through stainless steel, reboxed them and then sent them to me. My sharpener said that even at the astronomical price he would charge to sharpen them all, the edges were rolled so badly that it wouldn't even work.Don't bother.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
