"Bought these for my husband to help him accurately drill out centres for serviette rings, previously he had been struggling! He used the drill bits and the results were fantastic!"

Pretty good

"I bought this set as I'd let mine at home when doing an out of workshop job. Very surprised at the quality for the low price, in the right machine they work really well, they do dull quickly in man made boards though can be easily sharpened if you know how.
Would recommend to those unfamiliar with forstner bits.

"The standard of machining on these bits is very impressive and they perform well, better quality than I expected for the price. Unfortunately they came housed in a blow moulded plastic case rather than the wooden box illustrated."

Excellent purchase!

"The 16 piece box set is the best purchase of forstener bits I have ever made. They have sarrations or teeth on the bottom of the bit. This speeds up cutting but not at the expense of a clean hole! Made by Hilka; thoroughly recommended! Ideal for kitchen fitters as well as DIY."

Not brilliant.
20 Feb 2012
By ChilliHead

"They look great, and feel sharp out of the packet. The saw toothed business end looks like it should cut cleanly and quickly ... However they cut slowly but lose their edge quickly. I soon switched back to a cheap flat wood drill, which did an adequate job, and needed a less substantial drill."

How bad can they be
18 Jan 2014
By Karl101

"Bought as I was fed up of not having the right size bit I wanted, I just wanted a set.
Whilst I wasn't expecting a whole lot considering the price, I was quite dissappointed to find that very few of the bits turned up sharp, and many even had missing teeth. The overall quality did not inspire confidence.
I didn't use any of the bits, as I decided that I would be better off returning them and spending a bit more on a good brand, so cannot comment on how good they actually were in use.
I would not recommend."
