Blue Tornado bits are CNC machined to give a perfect balance and complete
smooth finish. All bits are manufactured from 4140 & 5140 steel and are put
through a special heat treatment to ensure proper hardness and tensile strength
to prevent bending or breaking. A Tungsten micro grain C3 carbide gives the
cutter a longer lasting strength that can be sharpened many times over.
Craftex Blue Tornado bits also have an anti-kickback design along with an
anti-stick coating to decrease friction. Lastly, an automotive semi-transparent
finish is added to the bit to give a longer lasting shine.
All Craftex Blue Tornado Router Bits and Shaper Cutters are backed by a
Limited Life-Time Warranty.
The actual router bit is pretty good and cuts well. However, the bearing retainer collar is the same diameter or even slightly proud of the bearing so it will rub work if you are patterning beyond the bearing. The collar, IMO, should be slightly smaller than the bearing to prevent contact with the workpiece. The worst part is that the set screw holding the collar is basically cheese grade of some unknown size (all metric and imperial hex drives don't seem to have proper engagement). Fix the collar issues and the bit will represent great value.
