Are expensive router bits worth the cost? After testing Freud’s 1/2-inch shank set, we think the answer is yes. The features found in these Freud bits–long-lasting micrograin carbide/titanium tips, tri-metal brazing, and an antikickback design–make them a better choice than less-expensive options. Each Freud bit is computer-balanced to run vibration- and chatter-free at speeds well in excess of the typical 22,000 rpm of most routers. These bits have a high shear angle that produces less tear-out and chatter marks, leaving a cross-grained cut that requires little or no sanding. Multiaxis grinding helps ensure the proper relief angle on cutting edges regardless of how the bit is oriented. The kit includes a variety of useful bits most frequently used by woodworkers and comes in a sturdy wooden case for maximum protection of the cutting edges. –Tim Block
