I usually don't leave feedback on...

Adam D from Pocatello, ID Posted April 22, 2013
I usually don't leave feedback on very many purchases, but I feel that this one deserves it. I am just a woodworking hobbyist I have used Freud router products in the past to build a few kitchens and these particular bits are top of the line. These Freud rail and stile bits are very adaptable to different dimensions of panel depth and panel location at least to the 1/64" (if not more accurate). I ordered my latest set of bits and unfortunately within my first pass, the braze that holds the carbide tips on the stile cutters failed. I called Freud directly and they said in very rare cases, this can happen. Well it happened to me. But Freud stood behind their product and was more than happy to replace their it, but they told me to give Rockler a call first since that is where I purchased the kit. I called Rockler, told them my situation, and they shipped me out a new set with a return label the same day and had me ship back the bad set. Although it was only the cutting tips on one bit, I was told that these sets are made to match and are only shipped as a complete set. I am very happy with the quality of this product and more impressed by the customer service that I received. It is one thing to get a quality product, but great customer service says something about the foundation of a company. Thank you Freud and Rockler!

The panel bit 3-1/2 inch diameter...

David W from Buckeye, AZ Posted January 29, 2012
The panel bit 3-1/2 inch diameter is too large for my Rockler router table. This is something that I never considered when making a purchase decision. The directions that came with the set are Excellent and includes a mini-DVD. Either the directions or the DVD made me sufficiently prepared to start! together I felt very comfortable but now I need to find a new panel cove bit that works with my 3-inch diameter table.
