They are the preferred bit for drilling thin veneers, knots and end grain.

Made of High carbon steel, Forstner bits are designed to bore clean, flat, precise holes in a variety of woods.

  • Shaft size varies with the bit diameter:
  • 1/4″ hex shank on 1″ and smaller
  • 3/8″ hex shank on 1-1/2″ to 2″
  • 7/16″ hex shank on 2-1/2″ and larger
  • Overall length varies from  3-1/2″ to over 6″ depending on the diameter of the bit.
