Topic tags/keywords: question router cutters

Hi fellow Jocks,

Does anyone have any experience of these router cutters, or know who makes them? This seems a good deal to me, even with shipping to UK. My experience tells me that if something seems too good to be true, it usually is! Just thought I’d ask before buying. The blurb says that this comes off the same production line as many branded American makes. Any light shed is much appreciated,

Thanks in advance,

Ragards

Garry

I think your experience is sending you the right message. They and the others on that eBay page look an awful lot like the cheap import bits you see advertised in the back pages of some magazines. Before I knew better, I bought a set of yellow router bits at one of those traveling tools shows. They ended up being pure junk but they did teach me a valuable lesson about buying quality router bits vs buying on price alone. A good brand name router bit will, in the long run, cost you less than the cheap no-names.

i think syenefarmer is right, but it can be smart to buy cheap tools in some occasions.
i bought a box of cheap BlackNDecker router bits with my first Bosch router because the whole box was cheaper than the cheapest Bosh bit, as soon as one bit in particular gets weared out i will replace it with an expensive bit (though i have been working with the same cheap ones for over 7 months and they still run fine) that way you have many different bits and you end up with quality material for the bits you frequently use, while the ones you occasionally use don’t need to be of the same quality.
but if youre certain that the bits you wanna buy are for frequent use then there is no miracle, you need brand bits.

I agree about buying quality tools but I’ve bought their router bit sets and have given them to my local High School . It’s been over a year so far so good.
