An excellent quality Forstner bit from our Axcaliber range at a competitive price. Forstner or pattern maker's bits are unlike any other type of boring bit in that they are guided by their rims and centre point. Holes bored with a Forstner are clean, accurate and flat bottomed. Only a Forstner will bore half a hole on the edge of a board or overlapping holes. Being flat bottomed, they are often used for inlays in veneer work.
