I’ve been eyeing the Incra Hingecrafter for a while and ordered it today when the price dropped to $60 on Amazon. Now I need some bullnose bits.
I was looking at the Whiteside 600 set and thought it was more expensive than what I needed at first. But after looking at the prices for the 4 sizes of bullnose/half round bits, I’m not finding anything cheaper—in fact, just the 4 sizes of bullnose bits from any reputable manufacturer will cost about $150 individually, so it’s almost like I’m getting the 4 straight bits for free. I thought about just buying the different sizes of bullnose bits as I need them, but I’m planning on using 2 or 3 different sizes right off the bat, so I don’t mind buying the fourth size up front. On Amazon I found a really cheap set of 5 bullnose bits from Yonico, but despite the glowing reviews on Amazon, people on woodworking forums say Yonico bits dull quickly.
The best deal I’ve found so far is $154.22 shipped from Hartvilletool.com (after coupon). Most places are selling the same set anywhere from $181 to $226. Has anyone seen a better price for the same or similar bits of good quality?
