Cheap is okay...
If you're handy with a file and you know what you're doing this can be fixed fairly easy. The cutting face is trash, the center pin is not centered, a couple teeth are straight up missing, and a few of the rest have serious burs. That being said, it's 20 bucks... If you know even the tiniest bit about how to finish steel, and how these bits work then it's a decent money saving purchase. If you need quality right out of the package then you are just going to have to pay more than this. A little file and sandpaper work though and it's a decent bit, just not great.
There were chipped leading edges on the bit. The long cutting edges had chips also. Took quite awhile to get some semblance of an edge. Have not had the opportunity to try it out. When I tried the first time before sharpening, it would not make a clean cut in a piece of pine. I guess I got what I paid for with the lower cost.
