Default Need roundover bit with 1/4" OD bearing

I have several or more 1/8" radius round-over bits. Most have a 3/8" diameter bearing. An example is the Whiteside 2005C that comes with a 1/2" OD bearing (B3).
Roundover & Beading Bit, 1/8 Radius, 1/2 Shank, Whiteside 2005C

Although Whiteside sells a B1A ball bearing at 1/4" OD, it would be undersized to the carbide of the 2005C.

Does anyone know of a 1/8" radius round-over, preferably in 1/2" shank, that has a 1/4" OD bearing? I like Whiteside and Amana, but will consider others.

Steve.

I would call MLCS, their 1/4 inch shank 1/8" might have a small bearing.

MLCS shows a 1/4" OD bearing on their site

https://www.mlcswoodworking.com/shop...light=bearings

But they don't say which bit it would fit [U]but[U] their 1/8" RO bit has an OD of 3/4" so I'd guess that the bearing is 1/2" (1/2 + (2 x 1/8). If you need the bearing to be 1/4", would one of the bits with an integral brass bearing work for you? Infinity Tools has a 1/8"O bit with a brass pilot - and I'd guess that the brass is 3/16" OD from the dimensions - but it only comes in 1/4" shank.

I have a couple of those, but they seem fragile for any hard work. As an intermediate method it may work.

How is the OEM "OUT OF STOCK - Expected On: 12/08/2017" on all of them? If nothing else comes up then maybe that is the way to go for now.
