Ok so I'm going to join the Big 3 debate with a tale of my experience. Recently I finally woke up to the fact that my Whiteside RFTD5200 had dulled to the point that it was burning wood rather than cutting it. So I figured that it was time to bite the bullet & buy a new one. Well a new one is $95 to $125---ouch!! So I started to look at Infinity & Sommerfield for a cheaper alternative. Turns out that Sommerfield doesn't make a spiral cutter. Infinity does and it runs about $60(?) so for 1/2 price I can get a decent bit. For some reason right before I pulled the pin the old gray matter said to check out resharpening the one I had. First I called Whiteside and got a price. Then called Infinity. Nope--Infinity doesn't resharpen their spiral bits!!! Well then, lets send the old one to Whiteside--done & mailed. Got it back today after about week & half to 2 weeks. As sharp as new. Cost??? $8 to sharpen, 50 cents to remove the bearings, $3.75 return postage. So for under $15 I got a basically new bit & saved a chunk of $$$$ Moral of the story--use the gray matter & check out return policy & whether & how much to resharpen. Glad I did.
A REALLY thin kerf. https://www.infinitytools.com/10-laser-kerf-saw-blade-40t-1-16-kerf?utm_source=remarkety&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=WED+7%2F25_1&_rmId=EbQzwLJg9PuldbQYpWR1cDyjnR1Y0WukGOe Don't think it's for me but, it's interesting.
Recently Infinity tools brought out a mutiradius router bit. It will cut 1/16" r.1/8" r.,, and 1/4" r.. Also 1/16+1/8r, 1/16+1/8+1/4"r. And a 1/4"bead,+ 1/8r., and a 1/4" bead,+1/8" r, +1/16'r. Also a 1/4" bead,+ 1/8"r, +1/16" bead. That is 8 different profiles and there might be more. I cut some test cuts in a piede of hard white oak scrap and it cut nice and smooth no burns. The the higher profiles I cut in some Doug fir 2X material. It cost $48. including shipping. ,which amounts to $6.00 per profile and maybe less,which is not bad. Here are some pictures, apologies for the blurry ones.
