I use a 3/8 HSS mill.
I had to get an adaptor for my 1/2 inch router from Lee Valley – but it has the length.
Stay away from a 4 flute mill as those cannot plunge cut.

I got this set-up when Michael Fortune gave a weekend seminar at the Tulsa Woodworking guild meeting 2 years ago. He shared the plans for his mortising set up (also in FWW 197)

Best prices are at wholesale tool – hss bits are ~5 bucks.
