Tell me what you think of this door makers router bit set. Is Hickory a good
name in router bits?
Thanks in advance.
Thanks for the info about Oldham...the HD guy said that too but damned if I
can find any mention of them on the 24 pc set. If true then I think all
will be good with the world. I buy their 10" sawblades and would put them
against any more expensive blade I've ever seen.
BTW the Borg sells the 24 pc set, all in 1/2" shanks, for US$99. Figure
I'll use about 16-18 out of the 24 but if bought separately they run about
$12 each for the smaller straight bits to $30 or more for the more
complicated cutters with bearings. So I think the price was right (and the
case is the most functional thing I've encountered in some time).

i have not tried there router bits but if the forstner bits are any
indicator i would not bother with them. i bought the set of forstners
and was not too pleased with the edges out of the box. poor castings
and dull. took em back. skeez
I've used the smaller version of this set (bought at the Borg when I
was just starting out). I really wouldn't recommend the Hickory bits
Had the opportunity to use a couple tonight from the 24 pack and I was
impressed. Nice clean cut on red oak and the PC 690 router didn't even
notice it was routing. Time will tell of course so will reserve judgement
until a later date.
