Default Roundover Router bits

Hi,

If I get a Bosch router that has an 8 mm collet, about what is the largest roundover bit I can use with it? By largest, I mean the largest radius it will cut.

Thanks

May The Lord Give You Peace

Cmt do one that has a 16mm radius.

HW Abrundfräser mit Anlaufring - R = 16 mm; D = 44,5 mm; I = 22 mm; S = 8 mm - DBH - Beschläge Wolfgang Birth e. K.
Jvl's largest is 12.7 mm radius .

As i only have one useful hand at the moment, there's not much I can do but use the computer, so please keep asking questions. There's not much I haven't already discovered about routers in Europe.

I have to concur with Gav, 16mm is the biggest radius you'll probably see on an 8mm shank. Trend stop at 1/2in (12.7mm) size with bearing or 15mm without (the latter on a 1/4in shank). In any case a 38mm diameter cutter is getting about as big as I'd want to go on a hand held small router.

HI gav

I think most of the members will use the 1/4" or the 1/2" shanks bits and not give the 8mm shanks bits a 2nd. look ...by the way I do use a 2" OD round over in a hand router from time to time ..

Thank you. Another router question. Amazon.uk is selling the Bosch POF 1400 ACE router for about 100 euros plus free shipping. I think that it comes with a UK style electrical plug. To use it in The Netherlands do I simply need get an adapter plug?

Nope, just swap the plug to a Dutch one

Maybe most of the users, but not the one who asked the question, who is surely the one you wrote your response for.

From now on though I promise to ignore all your posts that make no sense and only respond to the ones with very useful information garnered from your much appreciated router knowledge, which I shall always be thankful for.
