Freud Forstner Bit Set

Review Summary

Before testing this set, we used a generic, inexpensive set of Forstner bits in our shop, and got along fine. But what a difference when we began using Freud’s Italian-made bits! It’s amazing how those ordinary, cheap bits lulled us into accepting a little tear-out here or a little burning there. With a unique wavy-edge rim design, these bits never tore out any of the woods used for testing, including pesky veneered plywood and MDF.
The wavy edges cut so surprisingly smooth and clean, requiring little effort. They also cut flawlessly on angled-entry holes.
