These are not top of line freud bits fyi. But if you need these types, it's a good price for all. My personal preference as a casual woodworker is to buy Whiteside but only the bit that I need at the time instead of these multi bit packs.

I've made over 20 pieces of furniture with them and have had zero issues. Not ideal for large designs since they are only 1/4" but have worked fantastic.
First off you aren't buying three Freud bits for $60, so completely dismiss that foolishness. The round over bit alone is $30.

The Diablo line is made by Freud on the exact same machines with the exact same methods. With Freud you pay a great deal more for a harder carbide that lasts longer. With Diablo by Freud you pay considerably less (less than half) for a bit that won't last as long, but will perform very well.

Some may want to invest in the longer lasting bit. Some may wish to save now, invest the savings, and buy better bits with compound interest. Neither way is right or wrong, or worth being dismissive about.

Thank you! Had a blonde moment and was thinking they were the good Freud bits.

An alternative approach for buying router bits is to get a cheap set like this (which unfortunately contains bits you will rarely use), then replace the ones you use with quality bits as they wear out. That way you don't get caught in a situation where you don't have what you need to finish a project.

Too bad this set doesn't include an ogee bit...

Whiteside are about as good as you will get on the consumer market. But they'll also run you about 30 apiece on the low end.

I've been using Amazon's Kowood bit set and have had, surprisingly, great results with them.

Can you link to the one you like please? I have a cheap ryobi 18v battery router and don't want to spend a bunch on bits because I don't really have any specific use for it.

I use that set as well and can confirm that it works well for the casual hobbyist

While a kind gesture, this "deal" is horrible. Those hits arent worth $40. If they were Freud's good bits, they'd be great.

I almost got fooled into buying them the last time this deal was around... like a month ago.

But thanks for the offer... I'd rather buy 3 of the better ½in shank Freud bits, and the bits I actually need, for $60.

As I said last time... this deal is a trap for new woodworkers, (and people like myself who almost fell for it), out there

How do you know these aren't Freud?

Being 1/4 doesn't make them bad. There are TONS of scenarios where you simply can't get a 1/2" collet router onto your workpiece.
