FAMAG Bormax Forster Bits

FAMAG Bormax long Series 1623

Series 1623 is the long version of the Bormax Forstner Bits

Forstnerbohrer BORMAX Forstner-Bit long made by FAMAG (Series 1623)

With the new Bormax 2.0 drilling will be easier and heat build-up less than ever before! The tool life between resharpening is significantly longer and overall you will profit from the considerably longer service life of the new Bormax 2.0! What‘s new?

  • New centring point: the new centring point allows for pinpoint positioning and produces a cutting effect thanks to its twisted tip geometry that in turn reduces the required feed force.
  • New chip breaker flutes on the main cutting edges: the new offset chip breaker flutes reduce effort and speed up drilling.
  • New peripheral cutting edge: the new peripheral cutting edge has cooling fins, which lowers the friction and results in reduced heat development.
This toothed Forstner-bit (Series 1623) enters cleanly into softwood, European hardwood, and plywood. The advantage over traditional Forstner bits is reduced heat generation and as a result a much better edge holding ability. You can use it freehand or in the drilling machine and in the drill press.

Recommended speed 750 - 2500 min-1
All measurements in mm unless stated otherwise!
Accuracy according to company standard -0.05 mm

Note: We ship most bits in the new Bormax 2.0 version, but we still have some older bits in stock. During the rolling changeover we will continue to ship older Bormax Forstner bits until out of stock. The table below lists the sizes which still ship in the older version:
