Good enough bits, but most of them really won't get used much, especially the larger, more costly bits.

So for higher end bits like Freud, and (my favorite for Forstner's) Famag, it's best to buy the lower sized sets (7pc for $50ish) and then buy any larger versions in singles IF you ever need them. And if you do need them, the odds are, you won't need to go full on production quality with them.

Also... I'm finding myself being lazy these dog days of summer, so I've just been using the WoodOwl OD's, in place of my forstner bits (and for other things most might not consider them used for.) I'm finding their versatility, and easier sharpening, to be better since the hole quality remains the same.

Plus... it's Woot! ... and they aren't worth the $30 savings over other sellers. Lol.
