Have a look at Rutlands
(http://www.rutlands.co.uk/cgi-bin/psDept.cgi?Router%20Cutters ), they have a
range of Face Moulding Bits and Crown Moulding Bits from £19.99
Much more affordable to the hobbyist....
Why are these so damned expensive? They can't cost THAT much more to
engineer, can they? I look in Axminster, Screwfix, MachineMart, etc.,
etc. and there's nothing under £25 and some go up to like £60 - just
for one bit. You see whole sets of ovolo, straight, ogee, roundover,
chamfer, etc. going for like £30 but not one beading bit is included.
Can't even find them on ebay! I'd like to add a little more fizz to
some of the things I do but not at £50 per bit.
