The BORMAX Forstner Style Bits are the best quality Forstner bits we carry. Although more expensive than other Forstner bits, the quality, extended life and unique features of these bits are unrivaled – making them an excellent choice for production work or for serious woodworkers wanting the best bit available for a precious project. The BORMAX bits feature a patented design with a circular rim formed by a series of razor sharp cutting teeth set in a wave-form pattern. This patented wave form design produces several key benefits:
The circular rim’s wave form pattern of razor sharp teeth and efficient side clearance guarantee an absolutely tear free and accurate flat bottomed hole in soft and hard woods, MDF, panel materials and plastic.
This particular bit has a diameter of 1″ and an overall length of 3 1/2″ with a 5/16″ shank. Best suited for drill press use but can be used in a hand drill if extra care is taken. The BORMAX bits are precision machined from high carbon steel by FAMAG in Germany.
