Eagle and MLCS: What's the Difference?

Eagle America is "The World’s Router Bit Source". We have over 2,000 router bits for you to choose from and we offer the best-of-both-worlds: premium-quality USA-made bits from our EAGLE line and top-quality imports now from MLCS.

So what’s the difference between Eagle America bits and MLCS bits? The short answer is where they are made, but there's much more to consider so we made the chart below. Our repeat customers may be loyal to one brand or the other or choose Eagle America bits for some applications and MLCS bits for others. Either way, you'll be happy with the quality.

NOTE: Eagle's former "Pricecutter" line of quality imported router bits have been replaced by MLCS's high-quality import router bits to avoid product overlap (as Eagle America is now a proud part of the MLCS family of businesses). We guarantee these bits are of similar or better quality to the former "Pricecutter" line. (A few Pricecutter bits may remain until stock runs out.)
