Thanks aniceone, but I think I'll be going the 1/2" route all the same. I guess I'm kinda an overkill freak!
With the thousands of messages here it is starting to be hard to find information but I know I have posted at least a few things about craftsman routers...... I still have and use my first router a craftsman from 1975-76 ish. It has never had a sick day or failed for me. I used it for a lot of years as my only router..... It was a good buy then and time has made it even better. I have a lot of HHS bits, all 1/4" and I even use them from time to time, they are also craftsman. When I got a 1/2" router I could no longer shop sears for the bits, they did not carry that size, plus HHS was no longer the way to go. I have a few "newer" bits from them and I can't say they are any better or worse then any of the general bits I buy.reds_21 said:i am new to the wood working scene. i do have a router and have bought a few router bits for practice but the question i have is: are there any problems with craftsman router bits? after all the reading iv'e done on the forums i never hear anyone speak of craftsman routers or router bits. whats the reason for this? does the craftsman router suck along with the bits? can anyone fill me in on the "craftsman woodworking" quality of things..........
And I thought Infinity was a car????? I have not seen that "brand" of bit, where do they sell them?bennybbc said:I've used several different brands of bits. I haven't seen anyone on this thread
mention Infinity router bits. Whiteside has been my favorite for a while now and
I feel they are better than any other brand out there...except for Infinity. I haven't
been using the few Infinity bits for too long but I'm so impressed with their finish,
how sharp they are to begin with and how beautiful the cuts are. That and they're
pretty cheap! I'm not sure yet if they're better than the Whitesides but they're
at least as good and a little cheaper too. I highly recommend either brand.
They're a relatively new company. Here's the link...reible said:And I thought Infinity was a car????? I have not seen that "brand" of bit, where do they sell them?
