Hi

MLCS has a set but they are a bit high also, but look at the bits very hard you can use the standard router bit the same way and cut the cost of the some of the bits,it will take a little bit more work but you can cut the cost..the hard one to get around is the ball end bit (for the female socket part) but they do make that one in a bit set..
