Needed to inset magnetic sensors for an alarm system as they could not be surface mounted due to the closeness of the frame to the doors and windows. Rather than chisel the entire thing, I used this bit to start the cuts and then just finished the inset with a wood chisel. Of course my router was not only in the wrong state, but would not have worked because of the clearance needed. This did a great job, and eyeballing the depth needed was sufficient to get me exactly what I needed. Clean cuts, flat bottoms, even if drilling into a partly cut opening. I was careful to always be able to center the bit over an uncut area. Included two pictures.

I purchased the Diablo 1/2 inch Forstner bit for use in my wood crafts. I am retired on a veteren disability on got into making yard games. I make yard dice and yard dominoes that needed to have holes drilled in them that made a clean cut and this Forstner bit does just that. they go through even knots without chipping them out or pushing off to one side. I really don't have anything bad to say about the product.
