Hey, long time reader, first time asker…I’ve been looking over router bits at various locations around town. I noticed that Vermont American is owned by Robert Bosch, I assume the same Bosch. Does anyone know how their bits & blades stack up against the rest? From what I’ve read they are towards the bottom of the barrel, but I’d thought better from Bosch? Anyone have 2 cents?

Well Bosch sells router bits under its own name so that pretty much sums it up as near as I can see. they don’t really believe that the VA are of the same quality or the wouldn’t sell them under that brand name.

I think Vermont American is the reason Ace hardware has suffered so much. Another Garbage Brand.
