Mark did you ever find the sheet plastic you were looking for? I have found that regular old Glad Cling Wrap which has adhesive on one side works well for my veneering, should work for your plastic. It doesn't leave a residue on wood when peeled off.
Hey Herb, thanks for remembering. I did find what I needed and figured out a different way so now I don't even need the sheeting anymore. So this thread is now ONLY about finding that 33º Chamfer with bearing bit.
To the rest of you guys, Amana discontinued their bit that I listed above and FSTools has one, but they don't have them made and its going to be a month or so before they are ready for distributors. Carbide.com also carries them in limited stock and are currently out. They get theirs custom made from Israel and that is still a few months away as well. I never knew what I was doing would be so rare and uncommon. All the help you guys can give to track down this bit, I sure appreciate it. None on Amazon, ebay, or all of google from what I have seen.
Yes, there are 60º bits that are a little more common, but usually they are huge in diameter about 1-1/2" to 2" and that will definitely not fit through my 1-3/8" router table hole.
You say, then get a larger router hole insert. I do have one, but I cut very tiny pieces all day for my job and my material would fall through the larger hole and not have enough surface to cut flat if I go any larger, so I need the hole smaller at the size of 1-3/16". I also use a bearing insert at this same size too. I am trying to make things all efficient so that I don't have to change out the table insert 100 times a day stripping my surface screws and wearing things out.
I have also thought about getting a full new table and router setup for this very purpose to use the larger 60º bit, but I am still trying to see if the $30 plan is still possible instead of the $600 plan with full new setup.
So what am I looking for that doesn't seem to exist?
-33º chamfer measured horizontally.
-Diameter no more than 1-3/16" +or- a hair
-With bearing at the tip
-1/4" shank preferably, but can use 1/2"
This is what it looks like (#49440) and what I am looking for that is extremely rare:
In regards to this blue bit from Rockler, that could work well, except I do not know how wide the bearing would need to be. The shank is 1/2" so a 1/2" bearing would be too small and still leave a lip on my material. I need that bearing to come right to the edge for a perfect chamfer bevel cut. I wouldn't be using the straight bit area, only the chamfer angled part. Question is, is there enough angled blade to cut 1/8" of material?
Thanks for the help guys.
