October 2019 – CLOSED

I recently started doing some work for Bits & Bits and couldn’t be happier with the quality of their bits. Not only do they stock Whiteside bits (I’m a long-time fan of Whiteside) but they also have their own line of router bits. The following are included in this month’s giveaway.
– Four bit roundover set. All 1/4″ shank. Whiteside roundover bits all coated by Bits & Bits with their Astra coating to reduce friction and increase bit life. 1/8″, 1/4″, 5/16″, 3/8″, and 1/2″ radius.
