Hi Joe. If you go to our router bits section and read the threads at the top of the page you will get a lot of information that will help you.

Whiteside is good. Freud is also good. You may find something you like ok for less money but hard to go wrong with these brands. There are lots of companies selling these online.

This router bit test is a few years old but I don't think much has changed. http://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j&...62578216,d.cGU

I think it will go to your downloads folder as a pdf file. If it can't be opened let me know and I will try to copy it from my hard drive. (Whiteside and Eagle America tied for top spot.)

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.
