just a quick one about the 1-1/4-inch 1/4-inch shank bit flush trim bit
with top and bottom bearings that gets unruly at full revs.
took off the end bearing and allen screw rev'd up to 23,000rpm and
with bearing back on all hell breaks loose
my guess is that the ball-bearings are piling up on one side and
cause things to get eccentric
I may try some bearing swapping if I'm really bored

It's a renewal part item for anybody selling router bits.
I picked up one at Harbor Freight.
You get two brg, screw and bushing as a kit.
Outa stock? Buy a complete bit for $5 and throw away the cutter.
Interesting. Sounds like a bad bearing. It could also
be that the hole in the bearing is larger than the screw
(i.e. it's not the right bearing for that bit) which is
allowing the bearing to shimmy around.
It could also be that the hole for the screw is not
co-axial with the bit, forcing the bearing to be off-
visual inspection dont reveal anything
will clean the bearing and apply some light oil
may be a crappy bearing or simply wrong one for this application
there should be no spacing between ball-bearings or it should
have a bearing race or something to keep them from moving outward
not sure the make it has yellow paint
