Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by MickeyD Cuts through oak like butter
It takes about 5 to 10 seconds to a drill a bore hole in a solid oak cabinet door using this bit in a 18v battery powered drill. This was a big improvement over lower quality forstener bits I've used in the past.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ProjectDad Worked great for cabinet door hinge recesses
I needed to move drill some holes for oak cabinet doors I was mounting. This made the recessed hole just the right size without any point going all the way through the wood. I would recommend a drill press though it worked well with a steady grip on a slow drill with an extra handle.

Needed this bit for recessing hinges on furniture, easy to see guide tip, very clean boring, as a hardcore Milwaukee user i was very pleased with the Diablo bit.

This bit will take large curls in poplar,unlike the shavings and chips produced by lesser bits. I threw away the bit and jig made by the hinge manufacturer.
I made a jig by drilling 1/4" deep with this bit in hardwood, then used a router with a bearing guided flush bit to ensure the hole was square the whole way through. Excellent results followed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by KAE143 Quality and Value
I am a novice wood worker who is learning about cabinet building. I wanted to use European hinges for my second cabinet building experience but needed a tool/jig to create the 35 mm circular hole in the cabinet door to install the hinges. This Forstner bit was exactly what I needed. Used in my drill press, it worked perfectly for me. It was very reasonably priced and produced high quality results to meet my needs.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jissaidai Drawer front modification
I needed to transform an Ikea drawer front into a cabinet door.
This tool is the perfect tool to create the pocket that receives the hinge.
The tool is sharp and works perfectly at low speed on my cordless Bosh drill.
