We have tested these heavily at Axminster and have found them to perform extremely well and represent excellent value for money, so much so we are proud to put our name on them. All Forstner bits are short pattern. The 10 and 12mm has a 8mm shank, 15 to 22mm is a 10mm shank, 25 to 35mm a 12mm shank and the 40 to 50 a 15mm shank. Metric sizes 10, 12, 15, 16, 18, 20, 22, 25, 26, 28, 30, 35, 40, 45 and 50mm. Includes a depth stop that fits sizes 15mm and up. For the best results, use in a pillar drill.

bad quality

I bought this set from a shop in Belgium and after one hole the bit 30mm already dull and blue. 40 mm deep hole in apple wood at 200 tr/min and retract the bit every 1 cm to prevent clogging. Can't say that is good quality , at that price I excpected better quality. Now unuasable

Do not buy this for hardwood!!

I own this set a while now, u can use this set for soft woods but don't use them for hardwood.
The bits will get hot quickly, get dull and jam up when u drill holes like 3cm deep...
Yes and i don't have the RPM like 10000...
U can sharpen then very easily because the quality of the steel is not what u expect...

High quality bits

Sharp, accurate bits hat work well in both pillar drills and on the lathe. The edge stays sharp for a good while even working hardwoods such as oak so they don't need re-sharpening too often.

The depth gauge works well but does have one incredibly annoying feature, the bits have three different shaft sizes so there are three insets that go into the depth gauge. Whilst the insert clamps to the shaft of the bit with a grub screw with a hex hole the insert is held into the depth gauge with a circlip! I have a good collection of tools in my workshop which have many adaptors, collars and the such. Now also I have had to buy a pair of circlip pliers. For one tool...

Bit's of Class

I bought the Forstner Bit Set over a year ago and have found them to be invaluable. The box lives open beside my lathe and I use them all the time in my turning. The bits are extremely sharp but the best thing is that they cut cleanly and accurately giving an excellent on size result. I have no hesitation in recommending these as a number one buy and of course they have the Axminster stamp of quality.
