Amazon router bits
My parents are looking for Christmas ideas for me and I literally don’t know what to suggest because I never want to have them buy expensive things for me, so, I’m trying to come up with low cost things that won’t be a total waste of money. I’m also realistic in what I expect quality wise with anything low cost, but I still want to ask this.
On amazon they have Yonico router bits in lots of different profiles. I’m thinking I can use some replacements for my straight bits as well as maybe pick up an edge profile or two that I don’t have now. Also, keep in mind that 90% of my work is on soft white pine 2x lumber from Lowe’s so I don’t necessarily need high quality bits that will handle hard woods, but I don’t want just pure junk either. When I began woodworking I bought a set of Skil branded bits from Lowe’s and they have satisfied me quality wise. I’m wondering if these Yonico bits would at least be equal to those? If so then I think a $25 set of straight bits would be ok and keep their cost down on buying stuff for me.
Also I see lots of other yellow bits being sold that have the identical same photos, but not the same name. Makes me wonder if it’s possible to save even a few more dollars at times on those, or if I’m seeing knock offs with pirated photos for the sake of the listing.
