Planet Long Series Saw Tooth Forstner 60mm
The Planet Long Series Saw Tooth Forstner 60mm from the popular range of long shank sawtooth/Forstner bits from Planet is very wide and 31 models are available from 3/8 inch diameter all the way up to 4 inches diameter in both imperial (inch) and metric sizes. The Long series sawtooth Forstner cutters are particularly suited for cutting down the grain. All sizes are a minimum of 150mm long, will produce over-lapping holes, with a resharpenable edge.
Planet Forstner drills are manufactured from high speed steel for durability and finished to a high standard making them ideal for use by the woodturner seeking a flexible solution to cover most potential large-hole drilling needs as well as for the avid DIYer and a range of trades such as timber framing.
Forstner bits cut accurate holes and, unlike spade bits, auger bits etc. can be used to create overlapping holes and for drilling ‘over the edge’ of the workpiece to create partial holes. They function equally well in both side- and end-grain in both wet and dry timber. Apart from the small divot created by the guiding centre point, the holes created are flat-bottomed, which can be a very useful feature when creating, for example, candleholders, or fitting hinges, or drilling out the waste from mortices.
