I’m still getting my Maslow CNC machine built, but I need to get some router bits for when I finally start milling. I’m in Canada, and would prefer to order online something that’ll come straight to my home. I just want some basic router bits to cut through plywood. These sound great: http://maslowcommunitygarden.org/3-Bit-CNC-Starter-Pack.html but I’ve had experiences with things taking a month to cross the Canada-US border, so I’d rather buy something more local.
The hardware store in town doesn’t have anything of the sort, even on their website. I’ve looked at some CNC specialty shops, and they are not beginner friendly. I’ve been looking at Amazon.ca, but it’s hard to tell what is suitable, much less what is good. I was about to purchase some, but then they won’t ship to a PO box, or they are nowhere near long enough to go through a 3/4" sheet of plywood, and I’m getting a little tired of staring at things on the screen, not knowing if they’ll work for me.
I don’t think it matters much – I have a Mastercraft Maximum router, which accepts 1/2" bits. I assume the collar accepts 1/4" bits, too, and maybe 1/8" bits, although possibly an adapter of some sort is in order.
I’m not opposed to ordering internationally; I’ve had good success ordering from the UK, for example, but ordering domestically would be my preference.
