Default Why cant I find a 60º Chamfer bit with 1/4" shank? Need your help

Hey guys, I have searched and search and I cant seem to find just a normal 60º chamfer bit with bearing in 1/4". I am talking about the 60º that makes a really flat edge bevel cut, not the 30º V shape. I love Amana, but they only have this in a 1/2" shank. I have found other options with a 1/4" shank, but it has a long flat surface on the tip which would interfere with my work. I know you guys have the knowledge and you know the places to go, so please if you know of one, guide me to it. The Internet, google, amazon, and ebay are not being very faithful for me at the moment. Thank you.

A 30* bit horizontal is a 60* bit going vertical.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Okay, I tried to post a pic of what I was talking about, but I dont have enough posts.

I am not looking for anything that will cut a sharp V angle, what I need is something that will cut a very flat edge similar to a 45 degree angle and even flatter horizontally that that. I know it exists, but I am having a hard time finding one with the 1/4" shank.

Thank you guys for posting those sites. I didn't find this bit on any of the sites. Still on the hunt.

Okay, now I can post a pic since I now have 10 posts. Here is what I am talking about.

A 60º looking just like that, but maybe not as wide.

Not sure what you mean by take the bearing off. I need a bearing and I need the bit to look exactly like this one in the picture. I was just saying, maybe not as wide. See how the 60 degree bit looks much bigger and wider than the 45 degree bit? Not sure if that very wide 60 degree bit would fit through my router table hole.

So if you guys see one, please let me know. I still haven't had any luck.
