Flying carbide- This bit failed in a most spectacular way.
By Amazon Customer
This could be the most dangerous bit I have ever had the opportunity to use. The first time I used this bit to finger joint a few pieces of soft maple it failed in the most terrifying and spectacular way. As I was passing my third piece through the bit, 3 of the 8 carbide teeth snapped off and threw three piece of carbide out of the router. The resulting compromised bit then caused the board to kickback in an equally spectacular way.
Thankfully for me I walked away relatively undamaged.
I currently have a number of other Yonico bits, but at this point I am not sure they can be trusted.
In this case safety is definitely worth the few extra dollars for another manufacturer.

Terrible bit. Does not line up with mating piece
By Chris Dahl
Terrible bit. Does not line up with mating piece. The gap between boards is 3.3mm. That's a HUGE gap. I was really excited to use this bit, but I wasted about 3 board feet of hardwood making dozens of cuts trying to get any mating pieces to fit.
I should have known. You get what you pay for... I'm just always looking for good deal. Stay away from this bit.
