"I needed to make 25 and 30mm holes in thin board. The holesaws I had were either too large or too small. The Screwfix price for 5 Forstner bits was better than the price for 2 new hole saws so thought I would try them. I used the Forstner bits in my battery drill ( an end of line bargain from Screwfix). The bits were quick cutting and accurate. I found they cut better on a higher speed than I anticipated in the soft material I was working with. Job well done thank you!"
"Better and cheaper than a flat wood drill you get 5 for the price of one wood drill elsewhere. Cuts are good but you must use correct cutting speed. I have used 4 of the cutters and cannot be more pleased. I have put two rating of 5 stars and three of 4 stars this is only because they are drills and would require honeing at some point."
"We purchased this set as a single 30 mm bit was not in the screwfix range, as it turns out this was very good value and the quality is great. Comes complete in a handy case with the three other sizes so very good value for money"
"I was a little sceptical because of the very low price but decided that as I wanted them for a specific job only, even if they were rubbish they would at least do that job but I was pleasantly surprised. Not only did they cut accurately they stayed sharp for a good time. I also found them easy to hone. All in all exceptional value for money."
"The only tool that screwfix sell that cuts a 15mm hole in wood. Does a nice neat job, perfect for the holes used by cams in kitchen cupboards, so when one is missing from the manufacturer, you can use this to make your own. Also includes larger sizes. Tends to get blunt quickly on laminated surfaces."
"I bought the 5 piece Forstner bit set only because I needed to drill a 15mm hole to take 15mm cam locks in a piece of timber 20mm thick. To my surprise it worked very well without any penetration through the overall thickness. Highly delighted."
"Only needed one of the bits to drill the holes to hang the door on an integrated washing machine. Did the job. Useful tool and at a reasonable price compared to elsewhere. Online purchase and collection from my local store saved time. Happy to recommend - and will use Screwfix again. Thanks"
"Needed a set in a hurry saw these a good price, however you pay for what you get there ok for the odd useage here and there not the best for constant use though, but so long as kept maintained they will be fine for a good while."
"Not much that you can say about threaded bar! However, it is "to size" and worked well for the assembly work that I was doing. I was pleased that the ends weren't burred over as threaded bar often is - I hate having to re-thread the ends because nuts don't fit! This was fine."
"It is cheap. But it is not that good. I had to do some work on it to get a decent cut off it, so lots of sharpening, grinding and cleaning the rough edges. My overall advice: if you have the time, will to do somework on a brand new tool and have various files, slip stones and sand paper, you can get a decent cut off these. However, it will work cheaper to buy decent bits in the first place and save your time for work."
"I needed to drill 2 holes in a kitchen cabinet door for an integrated washing machine. The individual TCT hinge cutter was expensive to buy for just 2 holes, so opted for these Forstner bits, only needed the 35mm bit so got 4 others free, so to speak. I found it OK to use, did the job required, hole was just a little oversize to the existing hinge holes but not a problem. These are obviously cheaper end of the market, but for occasional use they should be fine."
