  • 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.

              Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.

              Using Corel Draw a 10 inch round acrylic jigsaw puzzle was created. It was the cut on an Epilog Laser. Two passes were used to cut thru 1/4 acrylic so as not to melt the plastic. Only one person has put it together so far. It is about 475 pieces. But would really like to try and cut one by...

              As far as the Incra miter gauge, if you keep it 1/4 inch away you will be fine, but you will have to adjust it when doing angle cuts, it’s a great miter gauge, RJ...

              Curiosity regarding farmers markets.
              I have only looked into a few, and I know that each one has different requirements.
              For those of you who do them, what are 'typical' requirements for yours?

              The nearest one to me that might have potential, and allows crafters requires:...
