I bought a leigh dove tail jig, along with a set of bits from woodworkers wharehouse.
The first time I chucked upa 1/2" 14 degree bit and took a cut it snapped in half, just above the cutting edges. I went out and bought a CMT bit and replaced the broken one. No more problem, Whiteside bits are also good. Freud makes good bits.
In my opinion Onsrud makes about the best.

So as you can see even good bits can go bad.... This has not turned me off of this brand but we will see how they fix my problem.
