# Silverline router bits

Hi all.
I'm confused about the silverline router specs on the web site.
the template cutters list shows
CODE DESCRIPTION PACK PRICE
633631 1/2 X 3/4 X 1/2 1 =A32.50
868626 1/2X1X1.2 1 =A32.55
427597 3/4X1X3/4 1 =A35.33
675131 5/8X3/4X5/8 1 =A33.78
282462 5/8X1X5/8 1 =A34.49
245015 3/4 X1X3/4 1 =A35.33
456966 3/4X1 1/4X3/4 1 =A36.28
My understanding is that there are 3 shank sizes but this list
seems to refer to 5/8 and 3/4.
What do the numbers refer to exactly?
Thanks.

Being template cutters I would guess - diameter of cutter x length/depth of cut x guide bearing diameter. There is no reference to shank diameter I can see.

What is confusing you? Seems OK to me. Maybe we need the weblink and the problem to be able to help.

Not confusing me,perhaps its confusing Arthur 51. :-)
Well that set of parameters is fairly obvious. But as my original post refered to 5/8 and 3/4 eg
Code 427597 3/4 x 1 x 3/4 Whats all that about then?
The list comes from this link
down to list of template cutters.

3/4" diam 1" cutter lenght and I suspect they have made errors and the 3/4 should be 1/2" shaft?
Hi,
They have omitted the shank diameter and which end the bearing is on, try here:
cheers, Pete.
PS they're OK for rough work but don't hold a candle to something from Trend for example.
Above URL is:
cheers, Pete.
No, 3/4" diameter, 1" long, 3/4" diameter bearing - shaft size not specified

I've always been crap at seeing the obvious. Thanks, John.
Well their description left a bit to be desired... given they had already described it as a template follower, it seems kind of redundant to specify the bearing size separately since it always needs to be the same diameter as the cutter! The shank size would be more useful to know.
