I recently bought the Harbor Freight Inlay Kit. HF obviously doesn’t make it but there’s no other name on the package. I was looking at them from other stores and for $35 for the kit and even more for the templates I always passed it up. This one was $10 and I had a coupon that brought it down to $8. The HF one even adds a centering pin which was a nice touch and the bushing is solid brass.
I still needed templates so I designed something quick in Sketchup and cut it out on the CNC.
The proof is in the pictures. It works great. The bit went right through the pine and padauk with no hesitation. I made a few other templates since and the cuts came out great. I think for $8 you really can’t go wrong with this.
I generally stay away from HF but they do have a few good things and this is one of them.
