Just lost my 3/4" Forstner. Rolled off the bench, heard it hit, but
it's nowhere to be found--either the Floor Monster or the Sawdust
Monster must have eaten it.
I'm in the middle of a paying project and can't just let things slide
until it turns up, so, need to replace it--choices locally are a Freud
Diablo from Home Despot or an Amana from Coastal Tool.
The question is, the Freud has a serrated edge, while the bits I'm used
to (cheap Chinese but they've done fine for me for 20 years now, with
the occasional stroke from the diamond hone) are the classic Forstner
profile. So do the Diablos work OK as Forstner bits or are they another
of those brilliant ideas that turns them into glorified twist drills?
I'd rather save the drive down to Coastal if I can.
