Hi. I would really like to order some 6 and 8 mm shaft spiral upcut and compression bits at reasonable price and quality. I live in Denmark. Anyone have ideas? Is it a better idea to just get a 1/4 " toolholder? Rasmus
Has quality but also price. They even shipped here. I keep them for ‘special project’, for the rest I buy bulks of 10 in china.
I just bought a 1/4"collet for my first router, the second one even came with one.
it seems like this might be another item that someone outside of the states could offer in a store, along with Logan’s triangular linkage kits.
I’m not sure if this is useful to someone in Denmark but I’ve been using these…
I had to also buy a collet adapter 1/2" to 6mm.
Thanks. What do you think of the cut quality?
Why did you buy a 1/4" collet for the first? Do you find that getting those bits are easier or cheaper? Do you mind sharing where you are from? Cheers Rasmus
I’m from belgium, i ordered it because i bought the maslow bits, and just realized that 1/4" isn’t 6mm when they arrived
I just ordered them from the cheapest site i could find, don’t remember wvich it was
Thanks Dag. I was thinking of doing the same, but if price and quality of the imperial and metric bits are somewhat the same, i just thought getting metric would be more future proof. Do you remember if the site was EU? The taxes on import to Denmark from outside EU are quite agressive
It came from england i think
Ok. Thanks again Dag. What router are you using?
The first router was a makita rt0700, but then someone here took apart a Bosch gof1200 and found the best way to attach a z-axis and i bought one of those.
Great. Im thinking of doing the same thing. Thanks for sharing
I’m happy with the cut quality but I’m new to this and i dont really have a reference as to what is good or bad. I’ll add photos so you can just see for yourself…
The first and last were on the Maslow, the second wasn’t. I cut a depth of 5mm per pass.
looks pretty good. Easy enough to sand off the the wispy stuff.
That looks acceptable. Thanks. What router are you using king?
I’m using the AEG MF 1400 KE
