Have 2 Freeborn dealers within 5 miles of my house. Will visit both Monday.

I have some Freeborn style & rail cutters and a panel raiser. Freeborn is high quality if you asks me. No brainier if you can drive over and pick up what you want and in your budget. Some of my other cutters came from Felder (re-badge Leitz tooling at the time) Good stuff too.

A word of caution on insert tooling. I think it’s great stuff but for profile/counter profile setups like style & rail cutters the fit will be lousy unless the spindle on your shaper is perfect 90 degrees to the table in all directions. The braised set are adjustable so you get the fit you want ever if you spindle isn’t perfect.
