I have a semi large collection of router bits (approx. 150 bits) ranging from cheap crappy bits to top quality from CMT and Festool.
I’m planning to upgrade some of the crappy ones to a better quality. Normally I’d just buy a single bit now and then…when needed.
In that case I’d go for CMT or Festool.
But I noticed the other day that Rutlands (in UK) are offering 50% price reduction on their Tornado router bits. Claimed to be “Americas No. 1 brand” so it’s a bit tempting to buy a handful or two.
Do you have any experience with the blue TCT Tornado bits? Are they professional quality as claimed?
Or is the “Americas No. 1” based on…how should we put it…one billion flies can’t be wrong, horse manure is good! (And that phrase is not meant as an insult to anybody!)
All comments on the quality of Tornado bits are welcome. http://www.rutlands.co.uk/pp+50-off-all-individual-tct-router-cutters+c07000
