Rated 4.0 out of 5 by 31 reviewers.
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Horrible The cutting edges of these bits are very poorly machined. There are divots all along the cutting-edges and the bits do not cut well. This was a factory-sealed bit-set, so I know that it was not a returned product. The attached photos are the bits BEFORE any usage, i.e. straight out of the box! January 12, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dull bits in general I agree with the other two recent posters that these bits are dull, right out of the box. Maybe the manufacturing process is totally hit and miss, or maybe the quality has declined. With all of the good reviews, I was surprised how dull these bits were. I had always bought Freud before--so I was used to good, sharp bits when newly purchased. Will get to work sharpening these and see if they can be improved. January 21, 2015
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by horrible I bought these bits because the price was right. I should have known better than to think a full set of bits would cost the same price as 1 bit from a better brand. The bits were dull out of the box. Burned wood on the first hole I tried to drill. These are getting returned.... January 20, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Forstner bit set. I was a little bit worried that for the price it would be very poor in performance.I was very much impressed w/ its performance.The bit holder was another plus, Thank for making my project much easier. The Toolman January 13, 2015
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by too dull to be used Too dull right out of the box. Cheap price not useful if can't even be used first time out. Burned more wood than it cut. I had previously purchased a different brand, similarly-priced, similarly-Chinese forstner bit set and they put these Ryobi bits to shame. I only picked up the Ryobi set because I needed the lower size range. December 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Forstner Bit Set This set is a great value. I needed the 1-3/8" bit for cabinetry hinges and upon shopping around, a single 1-3/8" bit can run about the same price as this set. Nice bits overall. March 9, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Effective so far Used with a cheap no name drill press. Cut smoothly through some cherry and maple. Little tearout observed. December 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Not that good These drill bits work very slow. The bits can go very hot after drilling; but still drill nothing out of the board. February 20, 2015
