Would like to try making the meeting but expect that So Cal to MI would be beyond my reach. I am looking forward to the next woodworking show here at Pomona.

Stormy, at least you will be able to see photos of the event and see comments from those who attend.

Russ, the event is from Noon - 4 pm. 75 - M59 east, exit at Van Dyke and head south about 3 miles on your right.

Whiteside and MLCS have joined the event as sponsors. We are going to have a very nice selection of bits to test.

Sorry Stormy.

Upon hearing that we would be testing Infinity router bits at the event other companies asked to join in. We will also be testing bits from Whiteside and MLCS; If I understand correctly we will also be testing Katana and Eagle America bits. I have not received comfirmation from Freud yet. Just about any brand of bit performs well out of the package, the real test is over time. That is exactly what we are going to do. Bits will be used in a regular home shop and information reported to the forums on how the bits are performing. I think it will be interesting to see the long term results and so do the companies. To keep things fair I specified bits that everyone would normally use for the test. All bits to be tested are carbide tipped. We will be testing a 3/8" plunge cutting straight bit with a 1/4" shank; a 3/8" plunge cutting straight bit with a 1/2" shank and either a Roman Ogee bit or Classical bit with a 1/2" shank. We will keep records of the types of wood cut with the bits since some woods wear the bits more than others. If you have any additional ideas for the testing please post them here.
