My name is David Venditto and I am the President of Infinity Cutting Tools
in Clearwater, Florida.
I wanted to take this opportunity to clear the air regarding rumors,
speculation, concerns and questions relating to my company.
The short version goes something like this;
My father, Carlo, sold his business, Jesada Tools, about 3-1/2 years ago.
The new owners did not have much luck with the business and ran into trouble
early on. We are not sure if they are out of business but it seems likely at
After the sale of Jesada I worked in another industry until I realized I
missed woodworking and so I decided to get back into the cutting tools
business. Most of my cutting tool experience comes from setting up and
running the production of router bits at Jesada Tools.
Some of the Infinity Tools products resemble the Jesada products because I
have designed the line according to the engineering that produced the
excellent quality at Jesada. Infinity products are coated with a Silver
Teflon, not White and we do not sell any other bits except our own.
Infinity Tools is owned by myself entirely and Im not sure where the
Australian ownership theory got its start but that is not true.
We currently have products made to my specification in the U.S.A., Italy,
and Taiwan. I provide design, engineering and material spec's for all of our
products, regardless of which partner factory we use, like we did at Jesada
for items we did not manufacture. For the consumer, the quality assurance
comes from the Infinity Tools logo on the product, this means that it stands
up to my standards, no b.s.
If any of you have any questions regarding Jesada, (yes, the name stands for
JEssica, SAbrina and DAvid), Infinity Tools or routing please call me
directly at 1-877-872-2487 and I would be happy to speak with you.

Jesada is also alive but I don't think well. They have offices in the USA,
Canada and Australia but not sure of their status. I did just order a
catalog and we'll see what happens.
The carving templates you were referring to are called "3D Router Carver"
(incase one wants to search on it) and yes, it is back in the CMT court. And
are sold by other companies such as Tool-Corral and others.
The father, Carlo, used to work for Freud, then was CEO of CMT (I think
there is some connection between the two, i.e., CMT is the USA version of
Freud). Carlo quit and started Jesada some 7-8 years ago. While at CMT,
created the "orange" color and took that to Jesada. CMT sued and sort of
won --- CMT kept the color but had to pay Carlo for "inventing" it. Jesada
then went with the "white" color.
Much information can be found on this forum by searching for CMT, Jesada,
Infinity and/or Venditto
