I used the 14 degree 8mm dovetail bit 29961 in this kit to compliment my Rockler dovetail jig 23777. It wasn't until the bit dulled after many, many uses on solid oak drawers I've built for all of my home projects that I went back to another brand at 1/4" thinking it should work the same. It didn't. I realized how truly magnificent the extra width of the shank is. There was a major difference in chatter and the Rockler bit's ability to cut smooth, perfect dovetails every time. I put the other brand 1/4" bit back in its case and ordered three more Rockler bits. I'll never go back.
"I live in NJ, and wish there was a physical store near where I live. My experience with rockler.com is second to none. Not only are your products first rate, but customer service/product support is exceptional. I've called several times, and never received someone on the other end of the phone who was anything but extremely helpful, patient, and friendly. The biggest compliment I can give is that I TRUST Rockler for all my woodworking needs. The only other store I can say that about is LL Bean. My wood working friends in western NJ love Rockler. Keep on keepin' on - and get a store here in Jersey!!" -
