A quality Forstner set, perfect for clean and accurate holes in soft and hard wood. 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.

High quality bitsSharp, 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.

Bit's of ClassI 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.
