Topic tags/keywords: question

I am looking to get a custom router bit made for a 28 degree angle with a guide bearing.
Have any of you fellow LJ’s had a similar job done if so what was your expense and experience ? thanks …...

Very expensive. Over $200. Give more details and a picture and there may be options. Always give more details as what you want isn’t always what you need.

I bet whiteside would make it, but much money it will cost.

Can you make a wedge shaped base plate and use a straight bit to achieve desired angle? Or, a hinged base plate that adjust to angles similar to setup for a circular saw bevel cut.

That was my thought, too. What’s this going to be used for? Is it a big production run, or a one-off or hobby thing? If the latter, might be easier/cheaper to bring the bit to 28 degrees, than buy a 28-degree bit.

For serious work buy/borrow/steal one of these with a guide bushing on a shaper.

Or get access to one of these grinders with a diamond cutter and reshape an exisiting router. Easy!

Thanks everyone for the great ideas , I love that adjustable shaper head, might just grab that for kicks.. But I found a company here in the midwest that will custom make that bit for 158.00 bucks
1/2 inch shank 26 degree pattern bit for my router table.
They are drawing up a shop detail drawing now.
10-15 days until delivery.
I will be using this for custom lamp shades for the side bevel.
It takes the table saw out of that part of the project and makes building these lamps just that much safer.

here was a little sketch sent them, I can’t quite figure out that photo bucket site yet , it cuts off half my images , but I know you catch the drift.
Heres a link to the company. Made right here in the USA which I love.
Thanks again..
