    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!
