There is two router bit sets that I am looking at and I wanted to know any feedback that you might have. The first is Mark Sommerfeld glass cabinet door set and the other is Freud. Mark Sommerfeld ranges from 3/4 in martial to 7/8 which consist of three bits. The Freud bit set ranges from 3/4 to 5/4 in material, two bit set.

Appreciate any feedback that you might be able to share..

Thanks, Mike

I have had good luck with Freud. After you collect the basics, you might find it better to buy bits individually. I have about 6-7 bits that I use all the time, and about 50 bits that never see the light of day.

Exactly as Pinto posted except I have the Sommerfeld set. Your choice.

I also have the Freud set and was impressed with how well it worked. I doubt that either set will let you down, it’s win-win.

Mike, Sommerfield has this set on utube, it will better explain how it works. Go to utube and search
(sommerfield channel) watch the glass door video.
