I like Charlie’s list—well thought out. Half shank bits cut better—less wobble. I don’t agree with cheap bits. They’re no bargain, they’ll dull quicker, the bearings will fail sooner and—heartbreak ahead—burn your valuable wood.

The problem is that anyone can say “carbide” but there’s carbide and then there’s carbide and we consumers can’t tell one from another.

All the quality bit manufacturers will have the profiles that Charlie suggested. Personally I rely on Whitesides, DML and Infinity.

Kindly,

Lee
