For those of you who do any large curve pattern cutting on the RT. I have the smaller version of this bit and just grabbed one of these. Price only good till tomorrow, I just found out about it.
Whiteside 3018 1-1/8" Diameter Patter Bit only $27.95!! (list price $42.50)
We had the opportunity to pick up a bunch of these bits on special so we're passing the deal along to our customers.
The pattern bit is a popular choice for template routing but what makes this bit special is it's 1-1/8" diameter. While 3/4" pattern bits do the job, their bearings tend to be more fragile. The 1-1/8" diameter bits resolve that because the bearing is more substantial due to the simple fact that 1-1/8" diameter less the 1/2" shank leaves more room for bearing material.
