  • Roundover Router Bit


    Does anyone know where I can get a mini roundover bit that has a bearing that rides along the wood? I'm looking for one similar in size to the Dremel router bit but with a bearing. I've tried using the dremel bit to round over but it always cuts a grove where it rides along the wood in addition to rounding over. I need a bit that small in order to round over some toys that have very small gaps.

    I've seen MCLS brass piloted router bits. Has anyone tried those? Do they round over without leaving a grove?

    Any help is appreciated.

    MLCS #6349 is a 1/16 radius and # 6350 is 1/8 radius I think that is about as small as you can get. I have not tried the brass piloted bits so I can't say how they work. Here is a link to the page I found MLCS Round Over Router Bits and Sets

    In God we trust, all others must pay cash!

    I don't want no bargains, they always cost me more money.

      Yes, I have used the brass piloted bits and they work fine for me, even on hardwoods.

        MLCS does make some nice high quality bits. They will out last most of the bits sold at you local hardware store.

          I'll second that about MLCS. And they ship free!

            Thank you all. I will order a couple of different sizes and see what works best.

              There is a free software package by GLARY Utilities by glarysoft that our local computer club uses to clean junk off do hard drives and defrag. They recommend running it monthly. You should also check for malware which most antivirus software does not prevent.

              Actually, Jim, I'm delighted that making bowls with the scroll saw is still a viable part of the scroll saw repertoire.

              In truth, the scroll saw part involves only the creation of the blank and the cutting of the concentric rings. That's what distinguishes scroll saw segmentation (both...
