Default 1/4 inch cove and bead bit

I'm starting a clock project that calls for a 1/4 inch cove and bead bit. I have found several different cove and bead bits, but not a quarter inch. Maybe it is my lack of routing experience. Where can I find a 1/4 inch cove and bead bit? I figure I am probably seeing them and I just don''t know what i'm looking at.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the quick replies. I was right, I was looking at the correct bits but didn't know it.

If you want a 1/4" (dia.) bead you get an 1/8" radius bit.

For really small stuff Amana makes a set, mostly for modeling. Not what you reffered to just throwing that out there.
