      Q:Can I use this to make a hole in a curved fence post?
      by|Dec 22, 2022
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  Yes. Drill a small pilot hole first, drill slowly and keep the bit straight and the drill perpendicular to the post. It will grab a bit when the outer edges start cutting so pay close attention. They’re not very long bits and they create shavings as well as saw dust so if you’re drilling a deep hole pull it out and blow out the waste from the hole and off of the bit. They’re really meant to be used in a drill press but go slowly and pay attention and you should be fine.

        Perfect cut, perfect size
        Using the 5/8 bit to make slots for 1/2 copper pipe to fit in. It's a perfect cut, perfect size, snug fit. This will be for a shoe rack, and I expect it to turn out quite nicely.

            Absolute Powerhouse! These bits by Diablo last me at least a year of heavy hole drilling and even after a year they are still plenty sharp! I used this bit in particular to drill holes for a pegboard training wall to go with our rock wall and the holes were so clean and smooth I didn't have to sand or touch up anything at all! Make sure the drill you are using is a work horse because this bit will whip your drill into shape. It also fits in a 3/8" chuck if you are wondering.

            I was really impressed with how clean of a cut this forstner bit provided, but it has to be used on a high-speed drill. This bit is about as sharp as a knife and is meant for cutting very clean holes/depressions in a finished piece, such holes a spade bit cannot reliably do. My first project with the bit was cutting depressions to fit dowels for a children's play ladder. The bit drilled quickly but allowed for good depth control. It cleaned saw dust and cuttings out very well. The center spur is a great feature for accurate holes as well. Ideally, you want to use this bit on a drill press but I was able to level it well on my hand drill. I used my DeWalt XR at it's fastest mode (2,000 RPM) and the holes were near flawless. I experimented at a slower speed on scrap wood and the hole splintered. This bit fits a 3/8" chuck and is made in Austria, so you know it is quality. The bit also needs to remain sharp so store it well.

            Best $16 I've spent
            I needed to relocate a European hinge on a cabinet as it interfered with the sink. I used a drill stand and this bit cut the perfect hole in the cabinet door. No rough edges, clean as a whistle, worked like a charm. Job done!
