CMT Domino Bis
« on: November 07, 2015, 07:43 PM »
I was ordering a couple of #5 Domino bits after snapping the tip off one cutting into Rosewood end grain.

The Amazon search showed the Festool bits (which I ordered) and CMT bits. The CMT bits were advertised as solid carbide. My experience with carbide router bits is that they are very sharp, but tend to be somewhat fragile.

What has been the experience with these CMT bits?

I believe Festool Domino bits are solid carbide.

The Festool USA web site says "carbide tipped". And, the used blades look like the tip is brazed on.
