Forstner and Brad Point Bits
Boring holes is one of the fundametal tasks of woodworking, like sawing or planing. Yet, while people obesess about planes, and to a lesser extent saws, we see very little attention being paid to boring bits of any kind. At The Best Things we have tested a lot of bits and settled on a few high quality suppliers. For customers who want the very best that money can buy, the W. L. Fuller manufactures the finest quality woodworking bits available anywhere. W. L. Fuller bits are made in the USA of US made tool steel. For customers that want a high quality bit, but are budget minded, the Horst Miebach Company is a quality maker of drill bits in Germany. The Miebach "Colt" line of brad point drill bits are an innovation in brad point drill bits featuring a patented land design which clears chips more effectively than cheaper bits. Miebach also manufactures the Colt line of Forstner bits, which we feel are the best Forstner bits available in the middle-market price range. Whether you are looking at the Miebach brad point bits or the Miebach Forstner bits, either are dramatically better than similar Asian made products that currently flood the market.
