Very well made, last a long time. Have done approximately 40’ of routering cherry hardwood and it’s still sharp.

Quality tool, grossly overpackaged
As expected from Freud, this is a top quality tool. I just wish they’d knock something off the price and send it in a modest package.

Will these bits plunge?
A shopper on Aug 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I bought the 1/8" and had no issues with using it for plunge routing.
Are the Freud 1/4” router bits anti kickback?
Bob B on Feb 1, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Bob,
I would say not. The opposite of normal feed direction is called climb cutting. This technique causes a bit to pull you in the rotation direction. It tends to bounce erratically or walk out. The climb cut method is more suitable for mechanical feed on a shaper. Don't imagine you can muscle in to dampen kickback manually. The force is not with you. Climb cutting a small piece and letting it pull the same way the bit rotates is dangerous. Wide bits should cut in normal feed direction. Restrict use of the climb cut method to light passes only, pulling a straight bit along large stabilized pieces.
do the freud router bits come with carbide cutting surfaces?
A shopper on Jul 21, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes
I'm purchasing a door hinge template here from Rockler. It says to purchased a 1/4" straight shank router bit to use with this template. Question, which one do I choose? Too many choices and I don't know which one is best to use with this door hinge template.
