Topic tags/keywords: router router bits

O’k , o’k ,on sale for $90 right now if you don’t mind waiting until July for them to start shipping it.

Interesting piece , but not for 100 bucks of my money.

Holds 1/2 bits only , unless you spend even more money on an adapter. Sheesh : (

LOL, for that price you’d think they could at least throw in the 50 cent 1/4” adapter.

Great idea but you can make one for about half that price.

looks like an overpriced and over complicated version of this http://www.parktool.com/product/heavy-duty-axle-and-pedal-vise-av-4 which also has enough room to drill a hole for a 1/4” router bit if you need but should be fine with 1/2” bits.

At least it is anodized red. That is worth a few extra bucks.

It should at least be gold plated for that price . . . There wasn’t a 4/1 date on that press release was there??
