Answer: 
yes and no. they will chuck into your half inch drill and spin just fine. that is where the similarity to "real" Forstner bits ends.
these are so dull and chipped right out of the package that they are unusable. you will need to push so hard on your drill making the job dangerous. if what you need to drill does not need a flat bottom then use a spade bit. it'll work a lot faster and better than Read More

If you "need" a forstner bit then i suggest you go to rockler or woodcraft and get some good ones. Read Less

Answer: 
Probably, but a drill press will be required for the kind of control you usually want when using Forstner bits (i.e. a flat bottomed hole, multiple holes the same depth, etc.).

Customer Reviews

Forstner Bit Set (8-Piece) is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 69.
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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from bad bits dull, pitted, terrible bits. They tore rather than cut. could barely get through pine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deal Why pay almost the same amount for just one size competitor's bit when you can get this Forstner package of multiple sizes for a buck or two more! I needed to use this style bit to countersink 1 and 3/8" holes for mud sill plate 8" j-bolts and 1/2" washer/nuts. I used a separate 5/8" drill bit after the Forstner bit to drill a clearance hole for J bolt. Awesome results. Shed sill plate footprint for the wall bottom plate framing is a perfect bed for a shed wall.

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.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Save your money I had ten 1" holes to drill 2" deep at an angle in a 4x4 for a coat rack I made. First two holes were clean, third had some tear out, by the 7th I just changed over to a spade bit. They weren't working at all and had gone dull immediately. All holes were done in a drill press at 750 rpm. Makes sense why 7 of these bits are the same price as 1 decent one

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 5 out of 5 by from Ryobi Forster Bit Set I love Ryobi products and these have kept that high quality. Built very well and extremely sharp. Drilled accurate through holes as well as flat bottom partials. With proper care should last many years. For drill press only.
