The Tool Barn

Name:  Drill bit, Forstner

Use:  The Forstner drill bit produces holes that are clean, round and flat-bottomed.  These are mostly used in wood working but are good for many applications such as mounting mortised kitchen cabinet hinges.  They are best used in a drill press but give decent results in hand-held drills.  Forstner bits tend to be fairly expensive when compared to other types of bits.
