This is a good set so far... I have only used the 3 round overs and a straight, but did top railings for a big deck with no issues.

I just bought this two days ago for 5 bucks more but I got 10 back in points. May be worth waiting. I had one of the bearings fly off one of the bits when I was using it. I highly recommend tightening them.... Other than that. The bits seem to be ok and the case is nice. It's a nice starter set so you can test bits and see what you like.

Sure, this is a test piece we used to "walk in" the measurement with the straight bit, set at a depth of 1/2 inch... It ended up being perfect with one pass on the router table, then flipping it for pass on the other side.

We ripped the boards to 2 1/2 inches on the table saw to make it easy, so that the cut would end up being 1/2 inch from both sides, and would fit the 1 1/2 inch rail that is the 2x6. It fit like a glove, and we did the same for the other rails.

I messed up and didn't save the marking on the table before cleaning everything up, hence the cut on the other side. The finished test piece was the perfect template for depth and width for the next day, and the combination of the table and the bit was a perfect piece simply viewing by eye.

As far as ideas, if you have a Lowe's near by, check out their Deck designer tool... It lets you custom design your project and gives you a list of materials needed when you're done. You can figure out whether you need their entire list or not.

I'm not familiar with Home Depot or others on whether they have the same, but you could check that out.

Shhhh, don't let those people who insist that we all need 1/2" shank bits (see previous threads) know that you successfully did all that work with these lowly 1/4" bits.

If you are trying to take off huge bites of meat in a single pass, then bigger shanks are surely better, but good results can be obtained with some skill/experience/patience and 1/4" shanks.

I'll have to check out those threads... We were going a little fast though, I wouldn't do the whole cut in one pass again... 1/4 inch at a time would be better.

As bits wear out (and any new bits I get) will only get 1/2" shanks... they really are better and usually same price as 1/4" (unless 1/4" on sale and 1/2" are not). unfortunately, most of these cheap router bit sets only come in 1/4"

Not to mention trim and compact routers don't support 1/2" bits. Yonico makes great inexpensive 1/2 & 1/4" sets. I've been using this Craftsman set a long time as well. Just clean then up well when done and keep them sharp. Zero issues here. I do use Whiteside for my most used bits, round overs, flush cut, dado, etc...
