Product Overview

The Diablo 1/4 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.
  • 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

Answers

Yes. With the center punch built into the bit, it keeps itself on-point without wandering like many bits do. It not only cuts fast, but it cuts clean without leaving a jagged hole.

Can i use this bit with a router???

You probably could get it to fit in the router collar, though it is fairly big in width and length and would be awkward on a router. This is made for a hand-held drill
