Benjamin Forstner patented his forstner bit on Sept. 22, 1874. The successful invention of the forstner bit was to make him a rich man. Without the lead screw (which Forstner calls the "gimlet-point") and cutting lips of more conventional wood boring bits it would prove especially useful to gunsmiths like himself and other high-end woodworkers. The forstner bit was unsurpassed in drilling an exceedingly smooth bore hole, with a flat bottom.

Freud Precision Shear™ Forstner Bits

Individual Forstner Drill Bits

Freud Precision Shear™ Forstner Bits

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, Precision Shear™ Forstner Bits include:

  • 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.
