Eagle, Pricecutter, and MLCS: What's the Difference?

Eagle America is now "The World’s Router Bit Source". We now have over 2,000 router bits for you to choose from. If you need it, we’ve got it! Our goal is to be your one stop shop for everything router – router bits, router accessories and routers themselves.

We are pleased to now offer MLCS brand bits as our NEW source of high-quality, top-value imported bits. We are gradually phasing out the Pricecutter line and replacing them with MLCS equivalents. Rest assured these bits are comparable quality to the Pricecutter line, from another family-owned business with over 30 years providing quality tools for woodworkers.

So what’s the difference between Eagle America bits and MLCS/PriceCutter bits? The short answer is where they are made. The longer answer shows you there are more differences between them but we know that no matter which brand you choose you will be happy. We have plenty of repeat customers who are loyal to one brand or the other, or choose Eagle America bits for some applications and MLCS/PriceCutter bits for others. You can see a quick comparison of each in the chart below or more details about Eagle America bits here and MLCS/PriceCutter bits here.
