Bosch announced today that they’re adding 78 new router bits to their already-extensive 550 bit product line. The new bits will fall into the following classifications: cabinetry/joinery, straight mortising, surface forming, edge forming, slotting/arbors, trimming/cutout, and solid surface bits. In short: There are no new bit shapes. Instead, almost every part of their line gets a new bit or two to fill in size gaps.
One other interesting fact: Bosch actually produces the carbide for its bits, giving them an iron-fisted grip on the quality-control throughout the vertical. They say this additional level of QC increases the quality of their bits, and we tend to agree; Material quality is a major factor in the construction of quality cutting tools.
