The router bit set of envy

Come into my workshop, and along with my standard range of router bits I have and use, there is a new display.  A set of specialty router bits designed to provide any CNC mill owner some stunning bits to complement their CNC machine, from Toolstoday.com

Every CNC-centric router bit you could hope for, all in one display.  And they are not just any router bits either.  This is not like the set of router bits you can head down to the local hardware shop and buy a set of 20 for $20.  If the bits in this set are not carbide tipped, then they are machined from solid carbide, which ensures they are strong (given carbide is naturally brittle), and much finer than any carbide tipped bit can be.

There are two versions of the set – either with a 1/4″ shaft, or 1/2″.  I have the 1/4″ set to complement the CNC Shark, as I can always fit them in a 1/2″ router, but of course I couldn’t do that the other way!

The set comprises of the following:

It is a pretty impressive lineup, making it very likely to have just the right router bit for the job at hand, no matter what the material (within reason!)  Wood (fortunately!), MDF, ply, Melamine, aluminium, copper, brass, plastic.

Solid carbide upcut for the finest finish, replaceable carbide tip bits for bulk jobs, or to ensure a fresh sharp edge and tip for a new job.

Although the router bit set I am referring to is sold as a CNC set, this is by no means the limit of what you can use the bits for.  After all, they are just router bits, and if you want to use them for freehand routing, or signwriting, or pattern following with a template, they are perfectly suited for these applications as well.
