Sounds like a Security Company. Sure that may not be CMT?

If your piece kicks back and breaks the window, will the ADT bit call the police?

only place iv'e seen them is ebay, and the price is about 80% off what any brand name bit cost. think i would pass on them. YMMV.

I would remind you that the average router bit spins up to 27,500 rpm.
Do you want that tiny piece of carbide on the tip of that blade to come off in an unexpected manner ???
I believe I would stick with known companies that make router bits.

I agree, but since I'm fairly new in the woodworking field, I don't know who makes good bits and who doesn't.

I bought some from MLCS that seem to be okay as a starter set.

OK fair enough...
The biggest is Freud ....
There are many others but a short list would be
CMT Whiteside Porter Cable Amana Bosch
There are any number of people who import Chinese bits and relabel them.
MLCS Rockler Woodworker Supply
and many,many others.
You will NEVER go wrong buying a Freud router bit.

FIY none are imune, the first router bit I owned to ever throw a chunk of carbide was a Freud.

Freud is indeed a good bit, but not in the same league with Whiteside. The preponderance of opinion seems to be that Whiteside is the best. And I'm hearing that from folks who use routers commercially even more than from hobbyists.

In what way are they not "in the same league"?
I'll give Whiteside the edge on most for what I would term "value", but my personal "best" overall would tend to be Amana...I find edges more finely polished, etc. But, for similar bits, they're typically higher in cost than Whiteside and the differences aren't necessarily that great in performance unless compare on very gnarly, chip-prone material, say.
My Freud sets have certainly been quite similar imo...

I'm pretty familar with both lines and I have to disagree that Freud is not in the same league with Whiteside.
Whiteside makes a nice bit but "far superior" to Freud would be a giant leap to take.
The brands I mentioned are all ones that I have bought and used. I based my opinions on real world use.

actually I think onsrud is the top. but they are more limited in what they sell. more cnc bits then anything else.

wasn't on my list cause there isn't many folks on this list that own a cnc machine.

They make router bits, too. I have several excellent Onsrud spiral bits.

I have some Infinity bits, the predecessor brand bits, Jesada, was a better bit IMHO. Actually the owner of Infinity was one of the kids that Jesada was named after. I think Infinity bits are farmed out to several manufacturers and made with the Infinity name on them. I would call Infinity OK but I have the same profiles in CMT and the CMT's are better IMHO.

I once bought some stuff on-line and used an offer of a bunch of Hickory bits to fill up the order. I have posted this opinion here before, but I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and longevity of the Hickory brand bits. Nooooo, they are NOT the end-all, but certainly great value. I use Amana when I can, Velepec when I can't, but my main supplier for straight/single-flue/spiral/solid-carbide bits is, and will be, Royce/ Ayr.... nothing like it anywhere. They also make the very best saw blade for solid surface money can buy.
