amazing value forester bits
16 Nov 2015
By
, Norwich
" I've bough several forester bits in the past and decided to get one of these sets rather than buying them one by one. I was skeptical that the quality and cutting performance would be as good as the high end expensive bit but these perform beautifully.
Like any cutting tool or bit you need to sharpen them now and again and just look after them, this is easy enough as they come in a nice plastic hard case for storage.
So far I've used a selection of the smallest through to the largest bits on both soft and hard woods with no problem, just remember to keep the drill speed down on hard wood so you don't burn the bit out.
Bit selection is easy as there is metric and imperial sizes printed on each bit.
All in all this Forstner bit set is amazing value for money. well done screw fix!! "

" I have been carrying a project of renovating old whisky barrel staves and making tasting trays and tea light holders. These bits give me a great selection of sizes to meet just about all my needs. Great price as well. Keep the bit sharp and they cut through soft wood and hard wood with little effort. "

" 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 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 a bad set with a good size range and at a reasonable price. They do work straight out the box but the larger sizes (i.e. the ones I have used so far) benefited from a quick sharpen. A couple of the trailing teeth appear to have lost their tips when originally manufactured but this makes little difference to performance.
Not the highest quality but good value.
