If you must order on line, you will have to pay for shipping - probably not all that bad for if you buy more than one. I was looking for 1/4'' spiral up-cut and found some for $9.97 on...

    The Holbren website has their dado bits marked down to $2 for the 1/2 inch shank size due to a labeling error and a variance in one bit size. Not a bad price for a set that was listed at $13. Might be worth getting I ordered 2 sets delivered was $6

    Let's Talk Flush Cutting Bits

    I understand the concept of a top bearing (hand held router) and bottom bearing (router table), and those bits with both a top and bottom bearings. What befuddles me is the bit diameter. :dontknow:Whether the diameter is 1/4" or 3/4", it will still trim flush. :eusa_thin Are the wider...
