Well, I don't know that I'd go so far as to say it's garbage. Vermont American
certainly isn't in the top tier of tool manufacturers, quality-wise, but their
stuff isn't exactly junk either.
Note, though, that it's high-speed steel. Not carbide. As HSS bits go, Vermont
American is halfway decent... but good HSS bits don't cut as cleanly, nor last
nearly as long, as good carbide bits do. For limited use in softwoods, this
will probably do fine. For repeated or extended use in softwoods, or *any* use
in hardwoods, you're better off with a carbide bit.
