1/2"(12.7mm) shank cutters are less susceptible to vibration or chatter making them a good choice if you have a router with a 1/2"(12.7mm) collet. The 48mm long shanks of these cutters are very useful for many other applications where reach of standard shank cutters is insufficient, for example router table use or when a sub base is in use.

Nice kitBought this Ax router bit kit with a Makita Router, just to have something to start with, but I must say, it is really good value for money bits, even in hardwood, they perform very well, so I have ordered some other bits from the same line.

Sceptical at first!I have some Freud bits I use, so I was curious how they would compare. As my beefier router is permanently in the table, I was curious about the extra length these Axminster had to offer (and useful too), so after several uses I really am impressed and cannot see me buying the Freud ones again.
