Router bits questions? ()

I've only had issues with those really cheap ones I mentioned in another post. No idea if the outfit is still around even.

Never had issues with Whiteside or Amana. Both are excellent. I have several Woodcraft branded bits, they seem fine, and several Freuds which also seem fine. I have a Freud multi-rabbet set that has chipped, but it has also been used hard over 20+ years.

I currently buy a lot of Magnate bits for specialty use. They have a 2" cut length flush cut that I use for this cut:

They also supply the only 7/8" ball cutter I ever found - that is one I use for another odd application. Not sure how they are on price, seem cheap enough to me, but not everyone views cheap and expensive in the same way.
