Hope someone has seen what I'm looking for. I'm looking for a roundover
bit w/bearing - but one with a less dramatic roundover than "normal".
Something that will produce a roundover akin to a bullnose half radius bit
(http://tinyurl.com/3xh6z ). I'm trying to match a tabletop edge and the
thickness of the top I'm trying to edge is exactly 1". The bullnose half
radius bit would work, but I'm not finding any that make a 1" cut ... at
least any that don't cost an arm and a leg. I figured I might be able to
find a bit that makes the same cut in two passes with a bearing, but no
luck so far.

I tried that and couldn't get a satisfactory edge - was either too flat at
the bottom of the cut, or too round at the top, depending on how much of
the bit I used. Maybe with a much larger roundover bit it would have
worked, But, I suspect it'd have to be really big.
