Default Cheap starter bit set-USA

Found these on ebay. I am not familiar with them but the carbide appears decently thick from the picture. All the bits are usable by a beginner with the possible exceptions of the dovetail and the v-groove bits. If price is the major consideration, this might be worth a look.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Yep, this appears to be about the most painless way to get started I've seen and unlike some of the larger sets, any beginner should wind up using most of them.

Good point Bob. They may be more appropriate for handheld use.
