    www.toolking.com and they have free shipping. But you do have to pay a handling fee. Talk about a great deal!!
    EDIT: Here's the direct link: Dewalt router bits
    Mods: I put this Bargain alert here because I thought it would be most appreciated by the DIYers of HTF.

    Of the bits on sale, which ones would work best for laminate trimming, and which one for veneer trimming?

    Pat,

    The 3/8" flush trim bit (DW6431) might be the best, but I've found that I much prefer using a sprial downcut flush trim bit for trimming veneer (and they ain't cheap!). It gives a much cleaner edge. I think laminate trimming would be less critical but that's just as guess as I've never used it.

    I used a 2 flute laminate bit without any problems on Laminate and also with veneer but I'll have to try the downcut ones on the veneer. I have found that a faster pass on the paper backed veneer works better than a slower pass. Seems to be less paper goo sticking on the bit that way.

    Does this mean that Pat might might be dressing up his goods?

    Which one of these bits would be best to cut out speaker holes and recesses? I'm thinking the "DeWalt 1/4" Solid Carbide-Tipped Straight". Would that work?

    Well, the weather was getting colder (until it decided to get into the 90's today)...

    Jon, a spiral upcut carbide tipped bit is what you want for that particular application.

    Brian and Patrick...

    Where do y'all buy your spiral router bits? I'm going to be doing a lot of mortice/cutouts and some veneer work too... I've not been very successful finding a great selection of bits...

    Thanks,
