The Major Drill Guide is EXCELLENT! The Porter-Cable Forstner Bits ... not so much. The Drill Guide is typical Major Mfg ... well designed and well made. A real pleasure to use.
The Porter Cable Forstner bits, on the other hand, are not nearly as sharp as others I've owned. In particular, I used the 1-1/8" bit to install some Olympus cabinet locks. The drilling went very slowly until I took the bit and sharpened it. In looking at Amazon reviews of the same bits, it appears others have had the same experience with them.
So .... 5 STARS for the HIT-25 jig.
..... 3 stars for the Forstners.
