The Festool 8 mm router bits (made by Lietz, IIRC) are superb bits, the carbide is high quality and the selection is huge.
I have a bunch and will probably get a bunch more before they vaminos muchachos.
I wish it weren't so, but it is so and am hoping that Festool will revisit the router bits again. They were never properly promoted and featured and am betting the router promotion programs were passed around to whomever was unlucky enough to get that project "placed in their hands." Probably held up and handled like a dirty sweat sock, "puleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeze, give that job to someone else!"
I could be exaggerating a tad, but it simply wasn't promoted. Anyhow, they are great bits at a good price.
Bob, I agree with you. Even the description in the catalog was hard to figure out. On a seperate subject do you have a list of router bits that you have that are to be discontinued (and available at the 25 % discount). i would be interested in picking up some. You can pm me or post here.
