    I have been using Milwaukee router bits and buy them whenever I see them on sale at Amazon. Usually find them well under 10 bucks with free shipping.

    As an example;

    You can't beat this for $4.76
    http://www.amazon.com/Milwaukee-48-...ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=hi&qid=1280579328&sr=1-3

    The problem with Amazon. The specs as listed leave out a ton of info. Sometimes even the shank diameter is missing. You'll need to search on the part number to find out the full specs for the bit.

    There is a partial spec sheet here.

    Some real gems can be found but you'll need to spend a bit of time searching them out.

    You're right. Just go to Amazon and type Milwaukee router bit in the search box. Look at this gem. ................. $7.95. Who cares that they don't have all the specs. It's easy to see it's got a 1/4 in. shank and 1 in. long cutter.

    Thanks for the tip.

    I'm afraid that plumbers surplus spec sheet doesn't give much more information than Amazon. You can tell just from the Amazon picture what the shank size is. Howver with those roundover bits they give the outside diameter of the cutters. Not the radius the bit will cut.

    Somewhere on the Internet there must be better information on these bits.

    Jack,

    The Milwaukee site used to have the info but I haven't been able to find it lately. Not sure of where else to look. If i come across the full specs I'll post it.

    Regards,

    Bill

    In for 2 of those that Jack posted. Thanks to FatWallet I got a free Amazon Prime account so 15.90 for 2 bits with 2nd day shipping free. :) Didn't even have to bother getting Menards to price match and use my rebate check :)

    They arrived today. Can't wait for the weather to rationalize so I can check them out. Probably won't be until late September before I can even tolerate being outside to work on the project.

    Yeah - they won't ship to Canada either.
    Would have saved me almost $10 a bit!
