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.

Why would anyone buy from a site with the following stipulation?
"The sale of this product is final. No warranty or returns. No exceptions."

Are they saying they can sell me a defective device and i cant do jack about it?

Furniture quality in this country sucks.
You are posting on slick deals, have you seen the "furniture" that gets front paged on here? Mostly people post that disposable furniture made from MDF/some kind of compressed sawdust and glue. The real wood pieces they post are 1/4" thick material.

I don't know what area of the country your from, but in my area there used to be lots of independent furniture makers. Currently the Amish and the Mennonite have the hand made furniture market cornered in Pennsylvania (not that there aren't others).

Is the baby miter lock bit actually on sale as part of this clearance deal? It looks like this might be a regular "sale" price.

Quote from TrollingBy :
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.

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 kit is pretty decent:

Thanks, snagged a roundover bit... Probably overkill for a small project I need it for, but good quality tools are such a delight.

Any suggestions for a raised panel bit for an exterior door — not a cabinet door? I'm guessing a raised panel for a exterior entry door would require a bigger bit than that of a cabinet door which is why I'm asking.

I have never seen the Amazon one in person but from looks of it they seem pretty similar. I don't think you'd go wrong with either.

(if you have never bought anything from HF make sure to search for a coupon on your phone. they always have a 20 or 25% off)

Johnathan Katz-Moses (whom I would recommend watching on youtube) suggests getting the cheapest set of router bits as possible. Then you can replace them as they wear out with better more expensive bits as you find which ones you like and dislike. It is what I did and I am pretty happy with the decision.

Soooo many bits to choose from! If I didn't already have a slew of unopened Whiteside bits that I have yet to use I'd add some more! lol there's actually some decent deals in that list.

Depends on what you want to make. Pick something, then buy the appropriate bit for it. I bought a rockler 3 bit set, haven't used a single one. But when I wanted to route a dado in plywood I bought the plywood size bits, when I made a climbing hang board, I bought a rounded bit, then I learned about the bowl bits, I bought one too small, it worked, but took longer. then I bought a bigger one, made life much easier. The point of this long rant is, you will learn what you need as you go.

Actually, this is a good price on the baby miter lock bit. Around 25% less than it's available elsewhere. I picked one up along with a downcut flush trim bit.

DIY guy building cabinets for kitchen and office at home. Some bookshelves and built-ins too.

Which router bits do I want? I don't see a T&G set for shaker style doors.

Thanks for your informative response.
You are absolutely correct, no real furniture has ever been posted here. I tried to just get a writing desk from a retailer at $1500, then I found the desktop is just MDF or these compressed material, and the trim is worse. At this price, I should get several piece of solid wood boards.
Very frustrated, then decide to make some furniture little by little. Need several router bits, a biscuit joiner, a planer, and a jointer. For whatever reason, tools become more and more expensive and out of stock from time to time.
Wait for deals.
By the way, I move to Richmond VA a few years ago, so please forgive my ignorance of furniture manufacturers.
