Well, that is a loaded question. If you want cheap, then Chinese tools will get you there.

If you want tools that will last you may need to pay a bit more. I get my router bits from "Routerbit World" online. The have a large selection of good brands and good pricing. Cheap router bits are good for a few passes and then they start causing problems. A quality bit (Freud, Amana, Whiteside, CMT) will last you for years.

The same is true for power tools. One Bosch jig saw will last a lifetime and be a joy to use, but a cheap B&D will last a year or two and will vibrate you to death while you are using it.
