I got an entertainment center from a neighbor made for a big ol tube TV. I cut it down to a credenza size unit for my audio gear. A set of doors are pocket doors. You open them and slide them back into the unit. The hardware needs 40MM pockets. I cant find a 40MM forstner bit at any of my local hardware stores. Where is the best place to order one from? And whats a decent brand to look for?

Thanks, I hadn’t heard the term Hinge Boring Bit before. The Amana is a bit pricey for a bit that will get seldom use. There is one at Grizzly I found that looks very similar. I’m looking at the Woodcraft and Rockler options also. Thanks again
