Smile Yonico Or Super-Carbide-Tools Router Bits?

Wondering if there is any difference? Or one better than the other? Talked To Yonico and was willing to give a great deal on multiple sets and shipping.

Anyone with experience with Yonico Exclusives router bits?


I see a few recommendations for Super-Carbide-Tools

I purchased purchased the three solid carbide up cut bit set from Yonico and am very happy with the cutters and the service .
I have also purchased from Super Carbide as well and had very good service from him as well .

I certainly will deal with both again.Just wish the Aussie dollar was a bit more healthy is all

Did a little more research and discovered that Yonico bits are rated K 10 which is equivalent to C3 in hardness. Super Carbide Tools are rated C2 which is one step down on the hardness scale.

Still does not answer how they compare in real life. Any advice from users?

Im interested in some router bits too, i want to build some Swords with woods and really dont know what brand to purchase. Im in Argentina, here the only brand taht can find are Bosch. Other brands are the cheapest chinese ones like Black&Decker.

If i purchase from USA i will pay the same shpping fee for an Amana/Freud/Chinese ones, so maybe this time will be great if can purchase some Mid Lever Bits.
I really dont know what to purchase i was checking and find some good bits under brand Amana, what is these compared with Yonico or Super Carbide Tools? i checked the site of Super Carbide Tools and have a lot of sizes, but really dont know if these tools have quality.

any help will be appreciated

Bosch bits are mid level quality bits. Since they recently bought out Freuds saw and router bit divisions you may see an expanded selection in your area. I guess our Aussie members will have to fill us in on the other bits mentioned.

I just bought set of 5 bullnose Yonico bits @$34.50 with free shipping. Though I've only so far used the one size, it did a very nice job. No clue on life expectancy, but probably longer then I'll ever use that particular shape. I'll probably buy more Yonico's soon.

Hi Guys

I have been using his bits for a long time but I get them from Geroge you will see many posting about the mounting plate from Grizzy it comes from Yonico just like the router table that Grizzy sales and from MLCS..not 100% sure but I think Sommerfeld router bits are now from Yonico but with a higher QC check on them..
