Caninetry Router Bit - Sets.

Hello everyone,

This is my first time here. I want to buy a set of Cabinetmaker router bits. I'm not a proffesional or contractor, the bits aren't going to be use frecuently. I was thinking in three options, Eagle Bits, PriceCutter and Katana Bits. Does anyone have a experience with those brands? Thank you.

PD. I know, my English isn't the best. I still learning it.

Eagle America, and Katana are both "Professional" level bits, and you listed Price Cutter, which is a slight step down from Eagle America, but you didn't mention MLCS bits...

I have plenty of experience with MLCS bits, and MLCS as a company. Good products, even better service. I would not hesitate to get my bits from them...

Currently I have the MLCS Mitered door frame bit set, pins & tails dovetail template set, 66 piece 1/2" shank bit set, 9pc Rabbeting bit kit, and a couple other items that slip my mind right now. EVERYTHING has been top notch.
The rail & stile sets are the two links below...

And the mitered door frame sets are below.

The Rabbeting kit bit set is here...

They have a nice band clamp called the Merle band clamp below...

The Wolfcraft 3681404 One-Hand Ratcheting Band Clamp might be a better choice though... I'm using cheap Harbor Freight band clamps that look like ratcheting cargo straps with funny corners for now...

Hope this has been helpful...

Welcome Byr. You won't go wrong with any of those bits...they're all good quality bits. Eagle America are made in the USA at the same factory as the Whiteside bits. Eagle America and Whiteside were both rated Best Bit by Fine Woodworking Magazine about a year ago. The Price Cutter bits are actually pretty good...they're a step up from most imported bargain bits, and I'd consider them comparable to the Katana line, which is MLCS' upper level and is also a step up from most imported bargain bits. The MLCS bits are a good value import line, and you may find that they're suitable for you needs, but it never hurts to get better cutters when possible.

+1 on the Mlcs and Katana bits. I've had excellent experience with the bits and the company.

Don't sweat it. I was born here almost 39 years ago and I still have trouble with it.
