About This Product

The Diablo 1-3/4 in. high speed steel forstner bit can drill straight, angled and overlapping holes in all types of wood with minimal splintering. The sharp center spur accurately locates the center of the hole for precision. Diablo forstner bits feature a double-ground, razor sharp serrated edge that slices throughout the rotation of the bit for less splintering and chipping.

Highlights

  • Hardened steel body - warrants a longer life and sharper cutting edge
  • Ultra sharp spur - ensures an accurate hole and resists walking on material
  • Steep angled cutting edges - produces holes that are smooth and flat, and create chisel like curls for fast, clean chip removal
  • Quality forged construction - instead of casting, strengthens bit for extended life

      Excellent bit
      Great Forstner bit. Worked flawlessly in my drill press for a prolonged time. Clears wood shavings while operating too which is a huge plus. Quality bit. Cut's through ALL types of wood.

      This is my first Forstner bit and it worked well, especially considering its reasonable price. The job was 12 shallow holes in fir 2 x 4 s, all good. Then I tested it on a piece of oak firewood which it also cut easily, even with a deliberately interrupted cut - see picture. (Used a light duty 5 amp drill press.)

        Needed this for special Christmas gift making. It was not included in a Porter Cable set that I already had and it fit the bill perfectly. Crisp smooth cuts each time.

        Very disappointed in this bit.
        Will it drill a hole, yes. Will the hole be clean, no. I purposely purchased a forstner bit over a hole saw, etc because I needed a clean cut hole. This was used in a drill press and the tear out on both sides was unacceptable. Even with a sacrificial piece of wood. I have many other brands of forstner bits and have never had this problem. Hopefully I just had a bad one.
