Forstner Bit Set (8-Piece) is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 127.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from For occasional use ...the set is a great value. I'm not sure what other buyers expect when the set is priced less than a single high quality bit ($17 when I purchased the set), but for occasional use where tolerances are non-critical you can't beat this set. If you're expecting more plan on spending a few hundred dollars putting together a set of appropriate bits.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible Quality I needed to countersink some lag bolts and 3/4" washers, so I stopped by Home Depot and grabbed this set off the shelf. It seemed like a great deal - the whole 8 piece set was only twice the cost of a single bit from the competitor's brand. However, when I took a closer look at the cutting edges of the bits and realized they were completely mangled looking (see picture). It looks like they were sharpened by a caveman wielding a stone hammer. It doesn't appear to be a one-time quality control issue either - every single one of these bits were gouged and mangled the same way. These bits will never be able to provide a smooth cut without some serious work being done to sharpen them correctly.

I haven't had a chance to use these bits yet since I am working on another project that doesn't require the use of these bits. I'm in the process of finishing my garage so I can use it as a shop when I pull one or both of the cars out. I gave it 5 stars even thou I haven't used them yet. They look like they will do the job I plan to use them for. I just bought a new drill press and wanted these bits to use with it. It's a nice starter kit for a new drill press owner.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lower sizes will burn! Just picked these up the other day to drill through red oak. I know red oak is hard but the 3/8" bit was more like a wood burning tip. I adjusted my speed according to the bit size in my drill press and they smoked right away. The other reviews on the quality and how these bits were sharper are accurate. The larger 7/8" bit worked great it for about three holes and then it too began to burn. I would not recommend these bits, not even for a one time job.

Bought this because I had to make an 13/8" hole for some cabinet doors for a project. I had seen previous reviews talking about poor quality and smoking upon use. The cabinet doors were birch plywood. The bit worked flawlessly. 2 days later, I tried to make more holes in some reclaimed pine decking...and the bit bound, smoked horribly, and couldn't even do 1 hole. In summary, worked once for a job then might as well throw away.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've had these for about a week. Nice set of common sized bits for a good price. I was using this... I've had these for about a week. Nice set of common sized bits for a good price. I was using this to drill holes through some very hard wood (bocote, padauk, and wenge). After, 15 holes the bit was worn out. I'm sure its great for some softer wood but I needed the bits then and couldn't wait to order a carbide tipped blade. But, the reality was I was in a pinch, needed several different sizes and for the quantity/quality they did a good job. However, these blades can be resharpened and will be good as new. They don't have the teeth that other bits I've used in the past have but that will hopefully make a bit easier to sharpen. Despite the quick wear out on the type of wood I was working with, I didn't have any issues with the bit itself clogging; which I was more than happy with. If you're purchasing these to drive through your normal type of wood purchased at HD; you'll be in great shape.

Forstner bits are wonderful for woodworking and this set had an excellent price. The case is another great feature. I've only had a chance to use them a few times, but they worked just as I expected. I think Forstner bits in general work better with a drill press, I don't think they would be appropriate to use with a hand drill, but then I rate myself as pretty much a novice woodworker.
