Craftex Blue Tornado bits are CNC machined to have perfect balance and leave a smooth finish. All bits are manufactured from 4140 & 5140 steel and are put through a special heat treatment process to ensure proper hardness and tensile strength to prevent bending or breaking. Tungsten micro-grain C3 carbide gives the cutter long-lasting strength that can be sharpened many times over.
Craftex Blue Tornado bits have an anti-kickback design along with a non-stick coating for easy pitch removal. Finished with an automotive semi-transparent finish, to give a long-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.
