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 to
serrated edges, Presision Shear™ Forstner
- Hardened Steel Body – warrants a longer life and sharper cutting edge.
- Ultra Sharp Spur – ensures an accurate hole and resists “walking” on material.
- Steep Angled Cutting Edges – produce holes that are smooth and flat, and create “chisel-like”curls for fast, clean chip removal.
- Quality Forged Construction – instead of casting, strengthens bits for extended life.
