Router bit sets with 30 assorted bits seem like a great deal and an affordable way to start your collection. I’m sure that I’m not the only one who bought one of these sets. They are good value if you look at the cost per bit. However, the sets often come with moulding profile bits that are quite specific – ones that I never use. If the bits in the photos don’t look entirely covered in dust, it’s only because I rubbed it off when I put them in the bit holder for the photo.
These seven bits are Dimar/WoodPecker three-flute, carbide-tipped bits with 1/2″ shanks. They have never seen a router collet. Here’s a link to their description of the bit set in PDF format. I’ll include the awkward-to-use Lee Valley bit holder, if you like (it might make shipping more expensive).
Here are some detail pictures of the router bits and profiles. Bonus points if you can name them all.
#1, 2, and 3 Ogee Bits
#4, 5, and 6 bits. Oh, gee. More bits.
#7. This is a special type of cove bit. It’s classic(al).
Okay, here’s the deal.
If you would like these bits, please leave a comment below indicating your interest by 2 am of November 8. You get a bonus entry if you can successfully identify the seven bits using Dimar’s Profile Chart and the numbers in the photo captions. For example:
I’ve identified the bits as follows:
1. Dovetail bit;
2. Panel-raising bit;
3. Slot-cutting bit;
4. You get the idea…
I will then draw a winner at random. Even if you don’t get this item, remember that there is still much more I want to give away.
