I was wondering if MLCS is still there? I can’t seem to get onto their website today, and come to think of it, I haven’t gotten any of their catalogs in the mail lately. Anybody know what might be up?

They bought out Eagle America recently, you may be experiencing some of the changeover pain as they merge their mailing lists.

There is a virus affecting several servers today that redirects you to fake sites, perhaps your server has been corrupted.

I have used Eagle America bits almost exclusively and I hope that MLCS doesn’t screw up the quality of the Eagle America bits. I hope that they keep the name of those bits to differentiate the two brands.

Obviously if the quality suffers, there are a lot of other brands available and it will just take a little time to pick a new one. I sent them an email to let them know my position and that there are probably many other wood workers who feel the same way!

How many on LJ use Freud bits? I have been looking at the new quadra cut bits for a project but just have not gotten around to buying one.

Maybe they are having issues today. I can hit other sites using the server @ work, so that seems ok, but I can’t see their site—even using the link above (thanks Jmos)

you may have been hit with the dns virus, you should check your system. The dns virus takes over the dns lookup on your computer and will not let you go to some legit sites and can redirect you to infected sites. DNS is how computers lookup the server IP address for a name like lumberjocks.com.

There has been tons of news lately, because today was the day that the government shutdown the US fix, now its up to you and your internet service provider to ensure that you computers are not infected.

I just got a template routing bit from them today. Ordered it late last week.

oldnivice: WHiteside makes eagle america bits (I’m not sure if they make all of them), so that’s why they perfors so well.
Who knows if mlcs will keep them going…

Freud bits are excellent.

Quadra cut Freud bits are great! Cleaner cuts, less tearout, less sanding needed! The inside rabbet on a panel raise is much cleaner on the cross grain cuts. The round over bit doesn’t chip out the edge when you finish a cross grain cut. I use Whiteside bits for those less frequently used bits especially the bigger sizes. You can increase the life of your bits by cleaning off the pitch often.
