    Online Sources for Router Bits

    What are some reliable sources online for buying router bits? Places that have a BIG selection of more than one brand?

    THANKS

    MLCS seems to be THE supplier of bits here.

    Eagle America, for American made bits, and I also use MLCS and Holbren for some bits. As far as multiple brands from one supplier I can't help there.

    There are lots of good brands of premium router bits. I buy most of mine from Woodline.com which are very good quality, and FAR FAR cheaper than the premium bits. Yes, MLCS, Whiteside, Freud, CMT, and others may be better - I have a few for heavily used bits, but mostly I buy Woodline - great service, cheap shipping, etc. For example a solid carbide spiral upcut bit that generally sells from $25 to $40 is about $10 from Woodline.

    I have a mix of Infinity for my dovetail bits, and the bits from Woodcraft when they are on sale for 5.00 each for my everyday cutters. Jim.

    Depending on the type of bit depends on my source. Mostly I use either infinity tolls or woodline.

    Holbren, Whiteside. Not sure about shipping outside the lower chunk of the continent though.

    A lot of them only sell their own brands, but here's a list of good suppliers I've dealt with: Infinitytools, Holbren, Amazon, Hartvilletool, Woodcraft, Rockler, Eagle America, MLCS, Woodline, routerbitworld, Lee Valley.
