Shipping was prompt and on time, packaged well. Product sharp as a razor. Price can not be beat. Really looking forward to trying out more of them.

Well worth the price, William King

These bits do not stay sharp for very long. Also, two of the shafts were bent. Luckily I have a metal working lathe and straightened them. The 4 or 5 bits I have used went dull after only 20 holes or so. I am planning to spend more money on a good set. I wasted my money on these.

31 piece forstner bits (5/5), Feb 3, 2010

By James Landis (Pottstown PA US)

I have used this over a year now and have no trouble with these bits.
They cut very well and make a very smooth hole. There is no tear out if there is a backer board.

Love them and for the price can't be bet.

24 Piece Forstner Bit Set (4/5), Jun 29, 2010

By Phil Anderson (Bonney Lake WA US)

I've just purchased my second set of these bits. I would have preferred to just stick with my first set, but some thief thought they needed it more than I did. I think the fact that I replaced my forstner bits with the same set speaks volumes about how I feel the set is to work with. I had my original set for probably 15 years. I've used many of the bits over and over, some just a few times. I've never had a problem, holes are always clean and even the largest bits don't take a lot of pressure to drill the hole. My new set looks just like the old set but I will have to say the box is not as good as the original set. This second order came with a damaged box, concealed damage in the shipping container. I sent an e-mail to MLCS and they replaced the box straight-away, along with a missing bit. I did receive 2 of one size and none of another size. They did not even ask for return of the duplicated bit. Their customer service is extraordinary. I also have the set of 66 router bits. I've been using those for over 10 years and only broke one and it was my fault for forcing it. All in all, I don't think you can do better than MLCS for bits of all kinds and you can depend on them to do the right thing. Good quality bits for a very reasonable price. I will continue to purchase from MLCS.

By Gene a. Kieffer (Elkhorn WI US)

I have always found MLCS to be reliable with a quality product. I have used their
products for over ten years. They ship within a few hours after receiving your order.
You will not find a better company to do business with.

Good, Nice and Cheap (3/5), Oct 19, 2012

By Antonio Braiz Gómez Sarramera (Caracas Di VE)

The next review is only a reference based on my experience.

I have to say that the product, in general, works well if you will only use them few times in all of your work, if you have to use them daily you have to purchase a better MLCS Set, of course, more $$$. This set was perfect for me because i will only use them few times.

Let´s talk about this set that i received.

1) The Box: It keeps the bits secure. it isn´t nice and is not well manufactured but its something.

2) The Bit Size: I have measured the diameter in all bits and they are enough precise to the size that is print on it. for example, the bit of 25.4mm (1") is really 25.28mm and the final hole is 25.38. The others the size can vary in more o less 0.10mm - 0.20mm in its diameter and the final holes are very near to the expected size.

3) The center point: Here the problems begin, each bit has its center point out of axis, this is sad, you probably will have to correct them.

4) The bit is not perfect: When the bit begin to spin you can see that the head is not well, you can see it move a little bit, this is a important problem but if you don´t really need accuracy this can be ignored.

5) The edge: The Edges are not well sharpened, they have imperfection along the edge and the sides, this is a big problem because you have to use more strength to get a deep cut. you have to correct them with a milling machine or a rotatory tool with a flexible axis these edges and sides.

6) The cutter action: they can cut soft and hard wood. I immediately tested them when i got them. I used a Cedar of 2" thick and drilled 1" depth, the cuts are nice, the friction did not burn the bit but the wood was burned a little bit. I used a Ebony of 1" thick and drilled 3/4" depth and it works! but with effort because the edge is not enough sharp, again, you have to correct them.

7) The finish: The surface of the bits are very nice, they look great! if you use the bit a with a 2500 RPM or more they probably will burn, I use them from 520 - 1500 RPM and they works well.

8) If you want to use them for a heavy duty, this is not for you but if you want a tool that can drill enough flat hole in your work, this is for you!

these bits do the work that i need right now, in the future i will buy de master set of MLCS.

5" Forstner Bit Extension (5/5), Dec 18, 2013

By Phil Anderson (Bonney Lake Wa US)

I had a project for Christmas that needed a thru-hole 1 3/4" diameter and 7" deep. I didn't have a bit that long but did have an MLCS Forstner bit of the correct size. I ordred the #9270 5" and the #9279 10" extentsions. My drill press has 4" of travel so there was no use in using the 10" extension. I attached the extension to my bit, using the four set screws supplied and liked the nice tight fit. Drilled my holes and there was no wobble, just nice clean holes. Highly recommended!
