Hi all. Long time lurker, first time poster here. (hoping this post finds it’s appropriate home)
I had a Amana tools 1/8 inch bit (can’t remember the # - spektra coated) I used it fine for a while and then it just snapped. (user error more than likely).
That said, I’m looking for a quality 1/8 inch bit - 1/4 inch shank (cause I don’t have the precision collet or adapter for accepting 1/8 inch shanks). I guess albeit, a 1/8 inch downcut, upcut, (compression bit - if that’s a thing with this kind of bit - I’m still learning.
I mostly cut plywood (baltic birch), mdf, and a variety of hardwoods. I’d just like something for cutting smaller profiles/cutouts with lettering and numbers that a 1/4 inch bit can’t do on certain designs I have drafted.
Anything that is relatively affordable and still quality (I know that combo is hit or miss) but even if it was a pack of multiple because I’m sure this last bit wont be the last one I break.
Any help is greatly appreciated and I’m thankful for such a great community!
These are the bits I use, I can’t say I’ve broken one other than the Micro’s 1/64 & 1/32 so they are very good bits. I have dulled a few I guess, They still cut clean lines but I can hear a difference starting after a few hundred hours use so I chang them since they are so cheap.
