All the best

Hi John,

I would be interested to hear what you think of the router cutters - I've been considering getting the Tornado roundover set for a while, but I have no idea how they are quality-wise.

Cheers,
Neil

Hi Neil
One of the sets I bought is the Round Over set. Unfortunately you would have to wait until Christmas for my feelings on them. My wife intends to confiscate them until Christmas Day. The blurb sounded so good that I couldn't ignore these and with the extra discount at the moment I just had to go for them. Still I will write a report on them when I finally get my hands on them.
All the best
John

Neil, i have 4 different Tornado sets and the round over set being one of them. They are very good and are certainly worth £29.95.

Regards

Here are a few technical facts about Tornado router cutters

Tornado router cutters are designed in anti kickback style in accordance with DIN EN847-1. It is now illegal in Germany to purchase router cutters unless they comply to this strict safety standard.

Tornado cutters have been tested to the highest of regulations and are quality approved by the HGB test house in Germany to BG-TEST202-001 and BG-TEST202-002.

Tornado cutters feature 10 to 15 degree sheer angles meaning that the tungsten cutting edges remain in continuous contact with the workpiece to provide softer, chatter free routing.

They also feature a right hook angle for super fast removal of swarf.

To avoid breakage the bodies of the cutters are precision turned from a special alloy tool steel to ensure a perfectly balanced tool.

Hope this has not bored you but these are the facts.

Thank you for the post.

I think it would be helpful if you added a tag line so that everybody knows that you are a representative of Rutlands. :wink:

Cheers

I just bought myself two of the Dakota straight edge guides. I have been after some for ages but they were a bit pricy, at £18.95 each for the 50" versions they are a steal. :D
