Good value for a DIYer
A regular brand name 3/4" single Forstner bit was around half price of the set value, I was a bit skeptical however after using the 3/4" to drill 7 holes in natural red oak, I was pleasantly surprised that the quality of the cuts. If you are just a DIYer, this is a fine workpiece otherwise YMMV.

    I bought these bits to drill holes when making a tumbler turner. I used them again already, to drill holes in animal blocks to make bird toys. I love this set. Very easy to use. Thanks, Khat

    decent bits
    This is a decent set of bits for the price. Theses aren’t a premium set but if you just need the bit for a few jobs or just a DIYer then i think they are the perfect set for you.

    Bought this so i could counter sink a screw and hide it under a piece of dowl rod so no fasteners are visible on a dinning table i made. Worked great. Easy to use. And was nice having all the different sizes to choose from.

    disappointed
    Dull bits , Poor quality, I was drilling hole in a pine board, hit a knot the bit snapped in half . I would not suggest this product to anyone who likes to do woodwork they will make you very flustered. The holes are not even smooth.

      It was the best price for what I needed, but it was very slow drilling through.

      Great bit set for the price. They make clean holes with lots of chip clearance. They have a heavy point to keep the bit on target when starting to drill.

      Horrible Quality
      I needed to countersink some lag bolts and 3/4" washers, so I stopped by Home Depot and grabbed this set off the shelf. It seemed like a great deal - the whole 8 piece set was only twice the cost of a single bit from the competitor's brand. However, when I took a closer look at the cutting edges of the bits and realized they were completely mangled looking (see picture). It looks like they were sharpened by a caveman wielding a stone hammer. It doesn't appear to be a one-time quality control issue either - every single one of these bits were gouged and mangled the same way. These bits will never be able to provide a smooth cut without some serious work being done to sharpen them correctly.

      Useless
      Right out of the package I noticed that the cutting edges were very jagged and dented and had burrs (see image). The three largest bits were dull requiring a ridiculous amount of force to get through soft pine. There was no point in trying the other bits. Completely unusable. They're going straight back to the store as soon as I find the receipt.

        Horrible
        The cutting edges of these bits are very poorly machined. There are divots all along the cutting-edges and the bits do not cut well. This was a factory-sealed bit-set, so I know that it was not a returned product. The attached photos are the bits BEFORE any usage, i.e. straight out of the box!

                          These bits cut nice and clean. They are a lot slower than I expected, but I guess that's the trade-off for a clean cut.

                          You get what you pay for... not much. There should be a disclaimer- “bits do not come sharpened”. Either that, or they are they softest steel ever known to man... I bought the same set for work 2 years ago, and had the same issue. I thought it was just a fluke. Had to sharpen them myself, and they held an edge OK. This new set has the same issue. I’m not sharpening these... I’m returning them.

                          I am very happy with the forstner bit set that I purchased. My intention was to get two sizes but when I saw the set and compared the cost I decided to purchase the set. I am very happy about the purchase and feel that it was a great decision and have now used more than four of the very sharp and clean cutting bits.
