« Part 6: Dye and Painters Tape Test No 3 and final Part 7 of Tool Tip series Part 8: Plastic spring hand Clamps »

Round Over bits 2, 2.5 and 3” ebay $14 to $16 free delivery, (takes a while) but worth the wait.

Awaiting delivery of the 3”
However here is a test run of the 2.5 in action

Picture 1, Tool set up Guards and etc removed as per the usual. I needed to do a glue up the get the size of 64mm approx.

Picture 2. Work in progress.

Picture 3. Trimmed and finished

Picture 4. A close up of the symmetry.

Picture 5. ebay details showing the item, the costs, delivery and the supplier

A good purchase I thought hence the share.
Beats paying $50 upwards! durability well we shall see.
Resharpening costs,...why would you bother!

a good deal there robert

i have had from 1/16r to 1 1/2r for years
you are right about the sharpening
or even the quality
most don’t get used but for a few minuets
every year or so

the ones i do use most
(1/8r – 1/4r)
i replace as they wear out

unless you are going to use them in a production setting
why spend hundreds on them

Great value for the money. And as David said if they are not being used in a production setting they should last a long long time. They can be sharpened with a diamond file if need be. A good investment for all of your router bits.
