Answer: 
They will work, but not all that well. You need a very steady hand and be prepared for them to bind up, or burn and tear your stock if you let the drill wander away from the perpendicular. Forstner bits really are meant to use in a drill press..

CUSTOMER REVIEWS

Rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Very nice set Very nice forstner bits. The case shown is not the one I received. I got a nice wooden case with a clear plastic insert in the cover that nicely shows off the bits. I like it better than the case pictured. June 7, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Bosch Quality! I've always found Bosch tools to be above par and of excellent quality. These forstner bits do not disappoint. They came well sharpened and are made of quality steel guaranteeing a lifetime of use if properly kept. The case is nice and has a clear lid instead of the all wooden case shown, and while that makes absolutely no difference to me, it looks nice and is durable. I wish HD offered these in their store locations instead of online-only, but the wait was worth it, as what they have in-store is either of horrible quality or ghastly expensive, nothing in between.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Gift! Purchased as a Christmas gift for my son. He was well pleased. December 30, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by very nice set Top is plexiglass not wood, comes sharp, with oil. June 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Good set of forstner bits The product description ought to add that the set includes 1/4, 3/8, 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8, and 1" bits. They are well made bits, nicely ground and cut clean square-bottomed holes. All seven bits have a 1/4" shank. The set includes a nice wooden storage box. Remember that Forstner bits should be used with a drill press for best results. July 9, 2013
