Was he trying to sell you a set of bits that were clearly dull?

Pure snake oil, do not buy. Granted bits are usually sharp enough to do some damage to a person, thinking they are not sharp (hence wax ended) But one thing to REALLY be careful with is planer blades, DAMN I found out the hard way, that my blade was STILL sharp after 100BD Ft was already run through it. I BARELY touched it, and nearly needed a stitch or two. However it cut so cleanly, that with light pressure it was back to new in a day. (my finger that is), and yes it may have been stinky, only because I had stayed at a Holiday Hilton the night before.

Sounds like he is trying to get you to buy some sharpening tools. I would avoid him.

Haven't heard of this just by chance, does that tool guy offer a sharpening service? I used brand new MCLS and Whiteside router bits right out of the package and they cut excellent.

Why would you require sharpening if they cut perfectly? An occasional few rubs with a Diamond paddle keeps them sharp.

Every-time I go over to visit the Heiress to the DaninVan fortune (Victoria), I have to get them to haul out their knife sharpener. They put all their culinary knives helter skelter into a big section of a kitchen drawer; just destroys the edges I put on them the last time I was there. You can't even slice a tomato with them! *Grrrrrr*
