Default 1/8 Shank bit question

Hello, I hope this question has not been asked, I search the forum but could not find anything.

I was looking for 1/8 Shank RoundOver/Corner Round bit thats 1/16.

I have been looking but I can find anything for an 1/8 shank. If anyone could help, I would greatly appreciate it.

Welcome Joe.Try looking at Dremel tool accesories. They have some router bits for their Rotary Tool with the router base combination.

Cherryvill Thank you for the welcome. I did check out the Dremel, and only seen the 1/8 roundover, been looking for a 1/16 roundover for 1/8 shank.

Joe, that may be a tough one. MLCS offers some 1/8" shank bits here: 1/8" Shank Router Bits

Proxxon has some too: PROXXON - Router bits

Eagle America has two bits with a 1/16" radius here: Specialty Bits - Miniature 1/8" Shank Carbide Router Bits

You can use part of the profile to make the cut you want with bit style K or L.

Joe to be honest I would just sand the 1/16 roundover if it was me. Unless you have a lot to do it would be just as fast and at that size no one would notice the slight irregularities.

I might have to do that, or upgrade to a full size router. I need to do a few round overs and would like to use my dremel for it.

Sloan's Woodshop has 1/8 bits

Without quality you only have firewood.

I know for a fact that I would use sandpaper as Charles has suggested for such a tiny radius. There are a number of dremel and copy router bits but not what you want. Here is but one Ebay lot of listings. dremel type router bits | eBay

The first photo shows my Dremel router with a 1/8" straight bit and the second shot also with a template guide. I bought the router for a jig for my wood lathe for which it's fine, but it's far from being a precision tool.

Joe, another idea might be to use a concave scraper of some sort.

Lee Valley has two different tools that might work.

1) http://www.leevalley.com/US/Wood/pag...01&cat=1,42524

2) http://www.leevalley.com/US/Wood/pag...310,41069&ap=1

Let us know how you finally solve your problem?

Sandpaper for me. A slight error or slip with a bit will cause more of an irregularity than you'd ever get with sandpaper. The scraper PRDarnell suggested would also be a viable choice if you're willing to hold up the job while it ships.
