[Canadian Tire] MAXIMUM 40 Router Bit Set

Went into the store to get a bit but saw this and bought the whole set! It’s an amazing price for these many good quality bits!

Edit: this was at the Oakville Location on Dundas.

These go cheaper, routinely $79/$89. They aren't the best router bits but for the price (especially $79), it's a not a bad value to experiment with. It would probably make sense to buy better bits for the ones you end up using a lot.

This. I wondered if this was a posting that they had gone on sale again around $79, no such luck.
Cheers 'n Beers.

They work. I bought the same set years ago and have replaced the bits I use most with better quality. I found the bearings don't hold up well on the bits with them and the case is made of brittle plastic so mine has a few big cracks and holes and the latches are pretty much gone. Nothing an elastic band can't deal with for now. It is a mix of 1/4" and 1/2" shanks. It looks like maybe a newer packaging on the website so maybe these old ones are being cleared out to make room.

If you are serious about woodworking, buy quality bits as and when you need them. It’s frustrating ruining an expensive piece of wood you are working on when the bit falls apart.

Many years ago I had good experiences with Mastercraft products, however that has changed as there not made of quality any longer . I'd pass on anything they make and save up for better

I got this kit for about $70 or $80. It has both 1/4 and 1/2 shank.

Yup. I learned that lesson many years ago. It's well worth the price to buy a specific high quality bit that you NEED rather than a bunch of lower quality ones that you may never need.
