Great Product
I was able to use the 1/2" chisel and bit set right out of the package. I used it on white oak without any problems. They cut cleanly and the mortiser set up was straight forward. It is a joy to use a tool that is well made and designed for the purpose at hand.

Nice bits/chisels
Nice bit set, but the largest one, 1/2" , was loud the other three sizes were fine.

Ready to use right out of the box
I bought these to replace a delta set. I spent many hours polishing the deltas to prepare them for use and I should have saved myself the trouble. These ones are ready to go. They’re 2-3 times as beefy too. Also FAST!!! Shipping wow

Great tools
These babies are sharp and precise. Very nice tools as they should be for twice the money as most other brands.

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.

Easy To Use
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.

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.

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

Quality, and sharp
Cut mortises in hard maple with little effort and left nice crisp lines.

Do these come in a case?
Paul on Dec 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Each bit has its own case. The cases are square cross section, telescoping
that slide apart with ribs that keep them from sliding too easily.
Provides good protection, but not a carry-all. Hope this helps. You can
see one in the attached photo.
