If you're not familiar, CMT is one of the best makers of router bits (along with Whiteside, Amana, etc.).

Sommerfeld is a very reputable company & seller. Seems they are clearing out all of their CMT individual bits & sets at 50% off. You'll be hard-pressed to find better prices on these bits, even used.

Free shipping if you spend over $25.

Can't find a suitable bit for leveling large slabs on a router sled. Anyone recommend one at a reasonable price? The cheap ones on Amazon dull after a few passes.

I just ordered this carbide insert surfacing router bit [amazon.com] a couple days ago on Amazon. Each carbide insert has 4 sides and can be rotated for a new edge. I also bought the set of extra carbides too for extra future-proofing. It literally just got delivered a few minutes ago, so I can't vouch for it yet, but reviews were very favorable when I read them the other day.

How is this better than a regular HF or Kowood bit from Amazon? Why is it worth spending 8x the price? Will it last longer? Forever?
It will lost a lot longer. Not forever, but significantly longer. Additionally, you'll get a much better result. When I use my higher end router bits, I get a surface that's virtually finished. It often requires little or no sanding. When I use my cheaper router bits, I know I'm going to have some work ahead of me. They leave a rougher and less pleasant surface. Time is valuable, and a good router bit might save me literally a couple of hours on certain projects.

I do not even have a router yet, much less any of these bits, but it is something I plan on eventually picking up and having available. Is this deal rare enough that I should go ahead and pick up a few of the most commonly used ones, or am I likely to see equally good deals in the future and so there is no reason to buy today?

Same here. Still grabbed a few straights and a round over. I've been wood working for 4 years now but I've never upgraded my bits from the ryobi and 'eBay special' used kits. Sheets have to deal with burnt wood after a router day. I pretty much use straight bits, template/pattern bits, and round overs but, unfortunately, no more template bits were in stock when I got here. I was hoping to add some spiral template bits to my shop on the cheap.

Which bit for a basic raised panel for an exterior door? There are lots of raised panel bits but I'm not sure which one to order. I just want a basic raised panel without any decorative edge like an ogee.

Quote from Mancolt :
For a new woodworker that's only used his router a handful of times so far, what are a variety of bits and sizes that would be good to have on hand for various projects? Unfortunately there looks to be only 1 kit offered, and otherwise you just have to select bit by bit.

I have a small handheld router that accepts 1/4" shank bits, and a larger bosch router that accepts 1/2" shanks.
This is not going to be a popular opinion here but it is an opinion. Buy a cheap kit that has multiple different bits. Use it to learn, build your skills and figure out which bits you need and then buy good quality versions of those ones. I'm currently learning myself and I'm using the following HF set and it has been great. Yes it'll dull after a while but by then I'll know what I need. Yes it might not leave the best finish but again you are learning so that gives you more chances to practice your sanding and finishing techniques. The higher end bits can be resharpened but again do you really know how to do that right now.

No. Buy most bits as you need them based on the project. I can't even begin to tell you how many bits I have purchased and have never used because they were a "good deal". Router bits are no different than good tools, they are an investment. There are a few bits you should buy when getting started that you will use regularly (chamfer, round over, rabbet), but I would hold off unless you have a specific project.

CMT are in the higher end bits for non-industrial uses.

I have maybe a dozen CMT bits, and they are not bad. However I would never pay full price for them. They simply are not worth it compared to better bits for less money.

Just know this... each manufacturer has good and bad bits. Personally, CMT makes GREAT dovetail bits as well as ¼in shank bits. However, I moved away from those a long time ago. Their compression bits are awesome. But if in the market for those bits, this is a great deal. Treat them well, and they will treat you well.

I'll grab a few here at this deal because I'm an addict. Especially for Italian tools Lol.

Look for the CMT 663.004.11

Having the ability to remove the carbide inserts and replace it with new inserts is great. Especially if using them on hardwoods, and (as I call them) "fossilized" woods.
