I had purchased these bits and cutters a few months ago and now that I have used them for a while I decided to post a review. I have purchased several items in the past from MLCS and so far have not been disappointed.

Each set of bits come in a simple little wooden storage box which is a nice touch. So far both sets of bits have performed VERY WELL, and show no signs of wearing. The only drawback and the reason I gave it a 4 stars rating is the box the tapered bits come in. They could of had the screw sizes marked on or near each slot where the bit goes making it easier to grab when drilling pilot holes.

As we all get older it becomes harder to read the bits without cheater glasses.. LOL

Once again I’m very happy with more MLCS products.

Thx for reading.

Those Plug cutters look good…

Those drills… I used to have some similar to that… I hated the round shafts… hit a rough spot and they just spin in the drill going nowhere… From now on, I will only get those with a Hex shaft like Snappy has…

I too like MLCS… Router bits is my best experience and a DT jig that I don’t really care for…

Ken,

You might drop the suggestion with MLCS. They have been VERY responsive to customer requests in the past. You never know, you might just be responsible for a great new feature!

FWIW, those MLCS plug cutters are on my wish list for Santa to bring me this year…

Hey Guys, if you are older then 71 I will take a back seat to ya. Still going strong in the shop and looking forward to the next 10 years. I have bought router bits and other items from MLCS and have had good luck with everything. Good service and good customer service. Yes, I wear tri focals.

oldtimer …71 you got me by a cpl LOL Well I feel 71 some days…. hehe.

I made it 44 1/2 never had any problems and one day started having trouble reading the little numbers on Aircraft Wires. Still haven’t heard the end of it from the crew at work… I was also doing a project in the shop and the drilled holes were a little off , then Blondie brought out some reading glasses and I was like OHHHHH MYYYYYYYYY that just cost me!

Thx, everyone.

Looks like the same sets I bought at Harbor Freight. For the tapered drill bits… I wrote the sizes on the box, and clipped out the size chart that was on the outer cardboard packaging. A third box of forstner bits did have the bit sizes stamped in the location slots. Anyway, as an amateur, these less expensive bits and cutters work well for me.
