Dietz, you get what you pay for. While $3.33 per bit sounds great, I would consider buying one bit and seeing how it works for me. I bought a set from HD and was very unhappy and returned it. I tried one bit from Rockler and one from Woodcraft, pleased with the results from both. I tried a Whiteside bit and saw a big improvement in the quality of the cut, a much smoother finish. I agree with Rick & Tom; purchase the bit as you need it and learn before you invest. Worst case, you will have more cash to spend on materials for projects.
