Topic tags/keywords: plywood bits

As i look into investing in quality drill bits and router bits I was wondering if anyone has two sets of bits, one expensive set for hardwood and one cheaper set for plywood?

It seems like plywood is hard on edges with all the glue involved which is why i was thinking you might want a cheaper set of bits that could be replaced easier after the wear and tear of the plywood

I have plywood specific blades but that’s because the need for high TPI to not splinter the top veneer layer

The only thing that I might do would be to use a dedicated router bit or table saw blade if I was working with MDF extensively for a project. MDF will dull even carbide pretty fast.
