Excellent chisels
Chisels are great. I previously used a set of "cheapies," what a difference! Worth the price, buy 'em and be happy!

Scary Sharp
This is the first set of these bits I have ever owned but I don't know how you could possibly buy a better set. They come super super sharp and seem like they are very high quality. The only thing I wish powermatic would have included was a nice case for the set.

Nice product
While there are cheaper mortise bits available, these are worth the cost. I just received mine, but have been using a friends set in his shop for a while and thought it was time to get my own machine and bits. Got a good deal on a craig's list PM 701 and ordered the bits from CPO. The four sizes will cover 99% of what I expect to need.

Nicely made chisels
I've been making replacement cabinet doors for my kitchen and find that cope and stick is not good enough. Mortise and tenon seem to work out very nicely. [...]

Good, but not ready for immediate use.
Purchased this chisel and bit set to replace the cheap set that came with my mortiser. For the price, I expected the chisel and bits to be sharp and ready to use right out of the box. The cutting edges on each of the bits and chisels required additional sharpening in order to obtain a finer edge. However, the machining finish was much better than the set that came with the mortiser. I will say that I would purchase the Powermatic set again as long as I could find it on sale. Should you decide to purchase a set for yourself, make sure you have a selection of diamond files available along with chisel sharpening set in order to improve the cutting edges. It took less than 20 minutes to sharpen the set.
