They sell router bits under YONICO brand name. I bought 70 piece set, panel door set, glass door set and few other bits from them. My experience was very good with customer service as well as shipping and product quality. I am not a professional wood worker and my usage is very limited to one project in three months. this was my purchase of router bits. I am satisfied with what I got.

I bought a few from them and they seem like decent bits, especially for the money. The edges are sharp, they are well machined, the carbide is fairly thick, etc. As Leman said, they are good to deal with. They included a $5 coupon in the order towards my next purchase. The ones I bought were molding bits that would have been 4x as much in a Freud, Amana, or CMT. I'll probably never use them enough to justify the cost of top of the line.

Oh yeah, I've seen BJ include links to them so I think he has some too.

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.

Thanks guys
The price plus free shipping, look like a great place to pickup some bits like you said Charles that I will never wear out, I placed a order and hour later they sent me a message that it was shipped.

Looking forward to your participation.

I don't normally get involved in conversation about any bit over another bit but a while ago I got stuck while looking for some small face molding bits and after a long search I found the Precession Bits Web Site and I thought that some of the little bits in their 10 bit set would work, it was a leap of faith to buy the quantity of bits that I did and get them sent across the World sight unseen, the Precession Bits Staff were as helpful as they could be, for cheaper bits then these bits cut very cleanly, all I have run so far are very sharp and I would be happy to recommend them, time will tell about how long the edge lasts but none have given up so far. I would normally buy bits from over here, depending on what I wanted the bit to do, CMT, our own Carbi-Tool, Freud, all good bits and I have nothing bad to say about Precision Bits as a Company or about the bits, they cut very well and are worth a try and my honest opinion is that the bits are worth more than they cost.

I am always interested in lowering my operating cost, but not my quality, so I went to some of my previous Chinese customers websites and found many of the items. (Global also sells the nail guns - for more) The US prices were good, with low markup. But the one thing that everyone has mentioned is the customer service, if you have good service and reasonable prices then I am willing to give them a try.

Thanks for sharing - Baker

I am not really one (not anymore anyway) to buy a cheap tool with the intent to replace it later on. That said, I think this is the exception here. While the bits are not great, they aren't bad either. I do find that some of their bits tend to go dull fairly quick. However, for someone just getting started in the craft, I would much rather see them put their money towards a better router then buy a bunch of expensive bits that they may or may not need. I think buy a set of these bits can in fact save someone money in the long term as they only buying the more expensive bits that they actually use, with the idea that you replace the bits as they get dull.
