Freud Precision Shear Serrated Edge Forstner Drill Bit 1-1/2-Inch by 3/8-Inch Shank (PB-011)

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. 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 has serrated edges.

Features

  • 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.

It left a lot of what looked like large pencil sharpener shavings behind. The holes this created were PERFECT, they didn''t need to be any larger or smaller, the dowels fit into them just right. I am very happy with this drill bit.

First, a little about me. I’m a weekend woodworker, mostly craft and art pieces and some home repairs. For 40 years I have sufficed with a power drill and regular bits, occasionally a spade bit for larger holes. Then I decided on a craft project where I wanted really smooth precise holes (hence the purchase of a drill press as well, don’t tell the wife). To make the holes I bought a cheap set of Forstner bits. You’ve seen them here on amazon, seven bits for $12. What could go wrong? Well, they worked way better than my old bits. Amazingly better. But I noticed they got dull within a few uses. So I treated myself to this Freud bit. Ohmyfreakingawd!!! This was so sharp it was like a hot knife thru warm butter, and that was drilling into sycamore. So smooth, so fast, it was amazing. No more generic bits ever again for me. I am now going to splurge on Freud every time. They are totally worth it. Do yourself the favor and try them.

Freud Precision Shear Serrated Edge Forstner Drill Bit 1-1/2-Inch by 3/8-Inch Shank (PB-011)...
Project: drilling a inch and a half diameter hole through 5 inch thick piece of Brazilian Ebony (For reference Oak has a Janka hardness of 1290, this ebony has a Janka hardness of 3690 making it three times harder than Oak). I burnt up a brand new big box store forstner bit and only got 1/16" deep. This Freud bit cut through that ebony like a hot knife in butter. After I drilled the whole I realized that I had actually drilled it about 1/8 off center so I scrapped that piece and started anew. Second time was the same as the first (minus being off center) and after I was done I could find no degradation in the sharpness of the cutting surfaces. Like its still brand new and the edges of the hole looked like it was cut with a laser, nice and smooth. Holy cow ! I''ve always known that Freud was top of the line but never justified the cost. I will only be buying Freud going forward.

I bought this Forstner drill in order to fit Schlage single sided deadbolts into an existing door. I needed to drill 1.5" dia x 1.25" deep with a flat bottom so a hole saw would entail a lot of work. I did some research and Freud had the best reputation and a wavy edge bit takes less pressure and generates less heat so I chose this to do the job.
This Freud drill did a fantastic job, perfectly clean on the sides and bottom of the hole. I was concerned that I had to use it in a hand drill and 1.5" diameter seems to be on the limit for a hand drill, but slow and steady did the trick.
The Freud drills are more expensive than others, but the quality shines through. The price difference at this size is only around 10 bucks, which probably won''t break the budget for your project. I recommend these 100%

I ran into some issues when trying to replace a door knob - the hole for the latch (cross bore) was less than the standard 1” and oval. It needed to be enlarged by just a bit. I considered a spade bit and hole saw, but ultimately decided to give this Forstner bit a try. I have a basic cordless Bosch hand drill, and had a lot of concerns about the hole going off center and potentially ruining the door since there was nothing for the tip to drive into. Fortunately everything went perfectly - as long as you go very slow the Freund goes in very smoothly and it was surprisingly easy to keep it centered on the existing hole. I’ve done two doors so far and have eight more to go.

We used this on Birch and it went through it like it was soft pine, you really need to be careful on the drill speed and the amount of pressure applied or it go too deep very quickly. We were using it for installing counter joiners on the bottom of the counter and it made very fast work of the hole drilling.
It generates a lot of wood chips in a hurry, so having a vacuum near by while drilling keeps the mess down to a minimum.

These are the best Forstner bits that I have used. The package is marked made in Austria, possibly made for them by Fisch as the tooth pattern is similar to a smaller Fisch bit that I have. They cut a very clean hole very quickly and the diameter was dead on (at least according to my $25 digital caliper). I cannot yet speak to how long they will stay sharp but will update if there are any concerns though I have yet to have Freud (or Fisch) cutters go dull faster than expected if used correctly (don''t force or use at too high a speed which can over heat and ruin their temper).

After going through the 5th unit in ~10 months of the same product - the 1" Forstner Drill Bit, I have concluded that this is a less than reliable product. In general it is not much different from the slightly less expensive competitor''s product.

Pros - looks well made,
well balanced shaft, and
going through wood fast and makes clean holes (when working.)

Cons - wears out quickly (after ~ 10 holes)
can''t handle mails/staples; edge gets dull immediately after touching a 20 Ga. staple
gets hot very quickly if the edge is dull.

Was contemplating buying a cheaper set that was half the price of just this one bit. Glad I chose for this one, went through 5/4 pine like a hot knife through butter. Will never buy cheap bits again.
