A few days ago I won an eBay auction for a new set of Timberline (#440-16) Shaker 1/2” shank rail & stile bits for $25.00 plus $5.00 shipping, which I thought was a pretty good price considering they retail for $113.00 and sell on the web in the $75-85 price range. They arrived in perfect condition today. I can’t wait to see how they perform. I believe Timberline is made by Amana, but is their lower-priced line. I will share my experience with them as soon as I have time to take them for a spin. If anyone has had a good (or bad) experience with Timberline bits, please let me know, as I may try for one of the raised panel bits.

This particular seller has more to sell of this style, along with several Timberline raised panel bits starting at $15 & $25 (#420-10 Ogee & #460-13 Cove), and several lots of 5 Timberline router bits with 1/4” shanks starting at $15, all with $5 shipping (very fast shipping…I paid for them on Sunday and received them on Thursday.) I was outbid the first few times I tried, but it seems that everyone that might have wanted one has already purchased theirs, so from what I am seeing now, you stand a good chance of having no other bidders bid against you if you are the first bidder…no one bid against me…and maybe I was just lucky. The most I have seen one sell for was $35, which is still a good deal. You can check these out at:

I am not familiar with Timberline bits…are they a good quality bit?

I recently bought the Timberline stackable slot cutter set. So far no complaints at all – high quality stuff at a reasonable price.

AFAIK, Timberline is Amana’s consumer grade import line. I’ve got Timberline plug cutters that are fine….not sure of the quality level of the bits, but I’d be surprised if they weren’t at least decent.
