Famag are German specialist manufacturers of drills for natural wood - The FAMAG manufacturing focus is on more than 3,500 products based around drilling wood. Many of Famag products have unique selling features, many of which are protected by patents. Examples include: HM-Bormax³, the all-rounder for all-rounders, WS-Bormax®, the rapid Forstner bit, traditional Forstner bits, carbide tipped boring bits and wood twist drill with special spirals.
Famag are a little bit proud of an event that happened a few years ago: they were congratulated on a first place. We quickly discovered that Fine Woodworking has conducted a worldwide comparison test of Forstner drills of all major brands. The award "Best Overall" was given to our "SUPER-Fostnerbohrer Classic" series 1630. "Made in Germany" as a quality feature is just worth something!
As an experienced manufacturer since 1865 with a long tradition and a philosophy that is committed to customer needs and high quality standards, Famag are specialists in their field and can also produce custom products. This philosophy sets them apart from the competition and clearly from Chinese products. For more than 100 years, Famag has stood for consistently high quality woodworking tools, produced at Remscheid in Germany.
