8mm router bits for Festool routers sampler set included
« on: September 16, 2021, 10:29 PM »
When I bought my 1010 router it had a 8mm collet on it which swapped out for the 1/4 collet cause I had no 8mm bits. I was lucky enough to find a Bosch 30 pc 8mm set on Amazon from Amazon uk. I wish Festool would include a small 8mm router bit starter set . Maybe a straight , 1/4 roundover , small 45 chamfer and a flush trim bit. If customers liked how well the 8mms performed compared to the 1/4 shank  it’s they might seek out some Festool bits. I got a 22 degree Festool chamfer coming from eBay plus a 11mm(7/16) Festool straight bit on back order on Amazon.

They used to have a set.  Not sure if it was available in the US but I was lucky enough to pick up this one on eBay last year.

They're too skimpy to include a few sandpapers that cost almost nothing with their sanders, they surely won't include $150 worth of router bits. And to be honest, I wouldn't expect that last thing.

 I wouldn't expect them to include such a thing, but I certainly wish they would actually allow them to be sold in the US. They make a lot of different bits and only a half dozen are available here.
Lee Valley has quite a few and they are searchable by shank size. You have already found the Bosch sets, I have one of those myself.
