I plan to make a lot of cabinet doors and want to buy a drill press instead of using my hand held drill like I usually do. But, I want to get on that has plenty of power.

Answer: 
We do not recommend using a forstner bit to cut polypropylene as it may met the material. Unfortunately we do not offer another accessory that can be used to cut the polypropylene.

Answer: 
The max RPM usage for the forstner bit is much lower than the operating RPM for a plunge router. We would not suggest using a forstner bit in the router due to safety concerns.

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 18 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Needed auger My rating are low due to using it for one hole. It did what it is signed to do October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. September 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 18, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Half the Cost! 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. September 6, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharp! 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. July 12, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cabinet Forstner Butter, was able to drill all 17 doors with 2 hinges. Highly recommend. May 10, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. February 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 10, 2015
