The versatility of a metric forstner drill bit set

If you just need to drill a hole through a piece of wood, our collection of twist drill bits will do that job for you.

However, if you need a hole with clean, burn free sides and a flat bottom a forstner bit is definitely the way to go.

Our collection of Forstner Bits meet the needs of professionals, craftsmen, and hobbyists alike. So you can achieve a perfectly flat bottom hole and clean arcs or circles in diameters from 10mm to 50mm.

A reliable cut, every time

Thanks to a rim-guided design, Stern bits easily slice through wood fibers without drifting, for a clean cut every time.

While a hand held power drill is great for something like a 20mm forstner bit, you'd need the power and stability of a drill press for larger bits.
