Title: Forstner bits
Post by: rac50 on October 10, 2020, 11:45:47 AM
I am looking to replace my old inexpensive Forstner bit set. Can anyone recommend a high end machine grade set?

I have a bunch of the wood river bits from wood craft and Lee Valley's bits, I am quite happy with all of them. I believe the prices are comparable, but Lee Valley has a wider selection.


I have all the sizes up to 1 1/2" in 1/8" increments, I find this meets most of my needs, for anything else I buy them as needed.
