New Precision Shear™ Forstner Bits feature a double-ground, razor-sharp serrated edge that slices throughout the rotation of the bit for less splintering and chipping, producing flawless flat-bottom holes. This unique geometric design has multiple cutting edges that produce greater shearing action, allowing for faster rotational speeds and more efficient cutting. Competitive Forstner Bit designs produce small chips and dust that collect in the cutting area, increasing friction and heat, thus causing the bit to dull quickly. Those designs also create holes with rough edges that require sanding. In addition Precision Shear™ Forstner Bits have serrated edges.
• Razor sharp serrated edge for fast and flawless cutting
• Quality Forged Construction for extended life
• Ultra Sharp Spur to ensure an accurate starting hole
• Steep Angled Cutting Edges – produce holes that are smooth and flat, and create “chisel-like” curls for fast, clean chip removal.
• Ideal For: Drilling flat bottom holes, pocket holes, or overlapping holes.
