Infinity router bits are generally well-respected. Several threads have discussed them. These threads can be found using either search box on the upper right of the screen.

According to a Fine Woodworking test from '07 better than Freud, CMT, and Amana but not as good as Lee Valley (barely), Eagle America, or Whiteside which was #1.

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.

Check it out. I think I will try some of the Infinity bits. I have been buying mostly MLCS but I may change.

This is the link to the `07 test. http://www.whitesiderouterbits.com/t...routerbits.pdf

MLCS didn`t fare that well but Rockler did pretty good. You should be very happy with Infinity if you were okay with MLCS bits.

Some of my bits are Whiteside and are grand. I have two Infinity bits and I would say they are of equal quality. Their customer service is top notch.

I like buying cheap but everyone does like a bargain. That said you need to consider quality. The biggest reason I have been buying MLCS bits is a lot of bits are bought for a one time use. I really try not to make more than one of anything. I like to move on to something new and exciting. I am now going to upgrade my router bits with Whiteside for the most part.
