Good , to start with .

I bought a full set of these from Axminster having tested a set my son had for his boat building . Same as the first reviewer they performed well to begin with but making nice clean plugs .I think that using the largest plug cutter i made not much more than 20 plugs before it began to burn. I was using it on oak .Tried sharpening the cutting edge but ended up making it worse . Now it is unusable .So my conclusion is that they are not much good .Either poor design or poor quality steel which blunts quickly .I guess that if it heats up then it will loose its edge quicker .

Very pleased

I found this to be a generally well designed cutter but it can generate a lot of friction when cutting deeper than 10mm into hardwood which results in burning. Luckily the burning occurs mainly on the outside of the cutter leaving the plug burn free. I just cut 200x 20mm oak plugs and found the best method was to cut right through a 10mm thick board, 50% of the plugs just drop out of the cutter and the rest stick in the cutter and need some help freeing (which makes for a lot of stopping and starting of the pillar drill). As it basically only has one cutting edge, I think it will be very easy to resharpen when blunt.

Sharp and accurate

Got a 12 mm cutter, very sharp and easy to cut with. Can´t say anything about how it will last, but so far it´s well worth the money.
