CMT Router Bits

Hey all, looking for some router bits to make some kitchen cabinets. This will be a new experience for me. I have been to Tool Town and have been looking at the CMT bit sets. Is there a better choose or are these to much for just making a few cabinets? I have always tried to make a good choose in tools and have felt you get what you pay for. So I am not really interested in the cheapish at Big Box. Any advice would be appreciated.

I havent used the CMT router bits, but I sure like the Freuds


If you think you can, or if you think you can't, you're probably right.

If you have a Woodcraft store in your area, check the website to see when their sales are each month. Their green bits are as good, if not better than, the CMT bits and with the sales they are $5 each. I'm still on my 2nd straight bit in 2 years, and I cut a lot of MDF.

Still haven't felt "generous" enough to try the Freuds, but I may have to test drive their saw and dado sets.
