Hi Worthy, Forstner bits are recommended for wood. -Brady M.
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.
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
As deep as you want.
It should, but the work should be immobile. Likewise the drill needs to be held very firmly for safety and to make a clean hole. (I have never tried this!)
Yes. I used this in my Dewalt 20V 3/8 drill, though I am sure it would fit in all 3/8 and 1/2 inch chucks.
No. Need power drill or drill press.
This bit was very sharp and cut into the solid oak project very well with no splintering at all.
