Hello,

I am looking for a bull nose router bit with a cutting diameter of 28mm (or as close to this as possible) taking into account the differences between mm and inches. I have been quoted to get one made, however if possible would like to find an off the shelf one to keep costs down. Does anyone know of a company that makes them to this size?

I require the same router bit to have a bearing on the shaft, underneath the router head. Please refer to my attached picture.
Is there a known and easy way of getting a bearing on this side of the cutting head?

Im stoked to have found this great forum while trying to figure this all out!

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks
Richard

Thank you for your replies.
I found a router bit by MLCS Woodworking that would fit the bill. Looking at #7759

The 1-1/8" should be close enough.
One problem I do have is that the outer diameter of the required bearing needs to be 5/8" and the inner diameter needs to be 1/2". Unfortunately it seems you dont get bearings this thin.
I am now thinking of using a router template guide instead of a bearing. Makita make one listed in their router accessories (sorry I cant post web links yet)
Part number 344364-5 would work well as its outer diameter would be very close to the needed 5/8", however im thinking its going to be a little short to reach through the router table and provide guidance for me to run my work piece along. Ideally a guide template with a longer neck would be good, otherwise Ill have to look at making changes to my router table.
