I bought an 1 1\4" bit today and it cut through my maple and aspen very nicely and left clean holes. Im not sure what the other reviews are talking about These bits arent self feeding. You have to apply pressure.

If a factory-fresh bit taking about 5 minutes to cut through 1/4" poplar sounds like your idea of a good time, this may be the bit for you.

I purchased both 2" and 1.5" Forstner bits and neither make a dent in any kind of wood - maple, oak, softwood, plywood. Less expensive WoodCraft are muuuuch better.
