I have a very large pattern bit about 1 1/4” diameter and 1 1/2” length cutters and its it cant be re sharpened anymore. I have looked around and haven’t been able find any big patterns bits similar. the exact size isn’t important just big! I for some reason think it was a whiteside but I am still coming up blank in my search. Any help would be appreciated

This is the place I use to sharpen my bits, planer and jointer blades… they make custom bits, but perhaps they may have some options…

Rockler makes one that is 2” long with a 1/2” shaft. The cutter is 1/2” wide, but I have had great results with it. I also have a Whiteside that works great. Not sure why you would need a cutter 1-1/4” wide, but I know they get pretty expensive. I saw some at the woodworkers show for around $150.

Whiteside 3018.

1 1/8” cutting diameter
1 1/2” cutting length
1/2” shank

It’s a beast.

Nitewalker- thank you very much I just ordered 2 cheaper then 1 that wasnt exactly what i wanted at 79.99.

pintodeluxe- I use that bit daily it takes wood off in a hurry, no chatter, no squeal, no burns. It also makes a great jobsite edge joining bit with a staight edge at times taking 3/8 off edges of boards with out stalling/ slowing down just using a porter cable 690
