Router bits go on sale at Rockler at more than 1/2 off. Is this a good buy and are their bits any good?

I have several of their bits and they have worked fine for me.

They are decent bits, a good value if you can get them at the deep discount. I tend to favor whiteside bits if I am paying full price though.

That sounds like a good price. I havent used Rockler bits before, but maybe I will give them a try.

Rockler consistently offers reasonably good products. If they are on sale, the price is often good. If they are not on sale, you are almost always paying too much.

If they’re on sale snatch em up, if not, my personal fave’s are Grizzlys, good quality and prices are pretty good

At regular price I don’t find the Rockler bits overly competitive, but at half price they have some appeal.

Rockler is running a special this month, selling nine different router bits at $9.99. I’ve bought three of them and plan on buying more at that price. I just used the round over bit today and was very pleased with the results. Never had any complaints with any of the bits I purchased before.

Hope this helps,
John

I did buy some of the bits and tried one out. The Drawer bit is for 3/4” stock and would not for on the 3/8” material I have but it did cut nice so last Sat. I bought another drawer bit and the guide for it. The drawer bit is reg. $35 so for $10 that is a deal.
