Thanks to their double-ground serrated edges, Freud’s new Precision Shear Forstner Bits apply a slicing action that results in less splintering and chipping while delivering a clean, flat-bottomed hole. Multiple shear-angle cutting edges lead to more efficient drilling, and the profile creates chisel-like curls that are easily ejected from the cut, to reduce heat and edge wear. The bits are forged from hardened steel, rather than cast, for maximum durability. This set includes 1/4-, 1/2-, 3/4- and 1-in.-diameter sizes.
Rockler offers Freud’s Four-piece Precision Shear Serrated Edge Forstner Bit Set (item 56641) for $41.47.
