Just my 2 cents on "MLCS or any cheaper" router bits
Most home wood shops don't need the high end router bits, it's a hobby for most of us I think,,,to me it like buying a car/truck to get you from point A to B , you can buy a Ford or a BMW that will do the job the same way, it's true the BMW is a better car but it wil cost you more to do the same thing,,,the Ford will not stand up as long as the BMW but if you only need to put on 10,000 miles a year on your ride the BMW is going to cost you tons more per year to do the same thing..
Bits Made over the pond, just about every thing now days is made over the pond...it's true they do make real cheap router bits out of the used beer cans we give them but they also make some good bits for the home shop...to me I try and take the middle of the road, I know that I'm not going to use the router bit every day maybe once per year if that...and if I cook the bit I can replace it cheap unlike the high ends ones don't get me wrong I have some CMT/Freud bits I use for the better jobs and the real hard woods but again it's like getting in the BMW and taking a Sunday spin...
I recommend Grizzly/MCLS bits all the time they both have middle and high ends bits and if I find a great bit on eBay I will recommend them also ( M10 carbide is M10 carbide ) Whiteside/Rockler is a M10 carbide , like many of the other router bits made by the other Mfg...
