BORMAX Centre Drill Forstner Bit

BORMAX Centre Drill Forstner Bit

New from FAMAG! The Bormax Centre Drill Forstner Bit, with a central tube in which to fix a normal bit as a drilling guide, permits one to precisely drill, free hand, large holes in situations where the hole must be drilled at an angle, for instance the holes to take spindles on a stair railing. The bit is designed to be used on soft woods, European hardwoods, particle board, and MDF.

The pilot bit is fixed into the main bit with an Allen wrench, and it can be exchanged for a shorter point, to allow one to make flat-bottomed holes in thinner materials where one does not want to drill through the piece, as with a normal Bormax Forstner bit. The hole to take the guide bits extends all the way through the Bormax bit's shaft to allow jammed or frozen bits to be pushed out using a special rod included with every kit.

Included in bit's kit:
BORMAX bit
Pilot bit: extends 20 to 30 mm out of the shaft
Traditional centre point
Allen wrench
Recommended drill speed 750 - 2500 rpm
Rod for freeing jammed bit
All sizes in millimeters!
Note: Most of these bits come in the new version Bormax 2.0. We still have some stock of the old version. This will be a rolling change and we will continue to ship older Bormax forstner bits until all stock is gone. In the table below we list the sizes which still ship in this older version:
