    The only blade to throw carbide at me was Dewalt Hardi Plank blade.

    As usual we traced the fault back to the operator.

    I'll use chinese circular saw blades ( have had them throw tips ) but not router blades.
    My 2 cents and you can leave it on the counter like most of us do.

    Heard good and bad on these...

    OTOH, I would hope nobody's running a 1.25" bit at 25000 rpm!! :eek: Think you're supposed to run a 3/4" @ <10000... Big bits... one of many reasons, for having a speed control on your router

    I feel the same way. I've broken and worn out more than a few bits over the last few years, but haven't broken or wore one out from Amana yet. http://www.amanatool.com/

    Damn those are cheap prices. It's worth a shot.

    Re: Cheaper Router Bit Source

    I've been getting bits and some accessories from MLCS for years. Never any complaints, either with quality or customer service. I've never broken their spiral bits, and I love the spiral flush-trim bit with a down-cut orientation. Super smooth for trimming veneer. I've tried other brands of higher-end bits, but my favorite has become the Katana they sell. After some brand-new bearings froze up on some trim bits the first time I used them, ruining the cabinet side, I pay attention to the bearing quality on different bits. The Katana's have superior bearings, both for the pattern/flush-trim bits and the round-overs. Free shipping to the lower-48, cool accessories, etc. have kept me as a loyal customer for over a decade. Their bearing lube and bit cleaning sauce works very well, too.

    Mine didn't snap, it bent. Carbide and all.
    One of the others went away in more glorious fashion sending bits of bearing across the shop.
    3 out of 3 died prematurely, as in a few minutes use.
    Out of hundreds of bits I've used and used up, they are the only bits I've ever had fail.

    I bought this router bit set (1/2") from them and LOVE it. It has a few bits I've never used and maybe never will, but having them on hand is fantastic!! Very pleased w/ the quality, I would stack them against my Freud bits for sure.

    I've also used their Forstner driver set and have no complaints.

    I've used several of their bits. Their cheaper spiral upcut bits have proven the most durable for me. I have the 1.375" chamfer bit and successfully used it freehand on the back of driver cutouts. Their Katana bits are also very nice. They ship very fast, usually at my door in 48 hours or less.

    Re: Cheaper Router Bit Source

    I got a coupon from them and kinda "stocked-up". They aren't Amana's and they sure aren't Mitsubistshi's, but if you're like me and like 1/2" shank bits and solid carbide up or down spirals for hole cutting, and can live with their limited profiles, for the average Joe, they're a good value. If I was using some $600 a bd/Ft exotic woods, especially the hard ones, Well...
