Default Todays goodies from george

I received the router bits just seven days including the day I ordered them from George in America. They appear to be well made but the Carbide on some appears to be thinner than I'm used to, however all these cutters are new types for me and will probably only be used occasionally.

Unfortunately that's the only one that was advertised, presumably the makers consider it suitable for the purpose, only time will tell. Also don't forget that these days I'm only into small projects.

Soon after getting Cortisone injections in my neck and lower back (24th March) and the Shingles eases a little, then Ron I hope to be back with a vengeance!
At the moment I'm playing about making an above table router lifter for that little table that I recently showed. I've bought a second hand Ryobi router for it, which I currently have stripped to it's component parts.

Hi Harry

Thanks for the feed back, it pays to RTM or say the web pages..

11pc 1/2" Shank Slot, Tongue & Groove Router Bit Set - eBay (item 140389579749 end time Mar-15-10 19:40:00 PDT)

I have the 1/4" shank set also and it will do the small job(s) just fine,like the 1/8" and the 3/32" T & G joints on the small boxes I do suggest you get the ovesize bearings but the fence will do the job just fine also..
( bearings 8mm x 5mm thick x 1 1/8" to 2" OD )

Hope the shot works wonders for you. Before they tried some new thing in my knees in late December, I used to be counting the days until my next shot after about 6-7 weeks or so. Over two months and still as good as it used to be the first couple of weeks after a cortisone shot.
