Thanks in advance!

Got mine from Lee Valley in Toronto. You can order them from the web if there's no outlet in Montreal.

Good luck,

Thanks Cal. I'm assuming you bought the 3/16th bit? Wont it show slight riges on both side of the 1/4 inch thick strips? Probably wouldn't matter after sanding anyways right?

Thanks again,
Mike

These are the traditional "canoe bits" with a 1/4 depth:

http://www.leevalley.com/wood/page.aspx ... 6168,46184

These will work on both 1/4 and 3/16 strips. If 3/16" strips and only those are going to be used the 3/16 bit will be fine, but routing 1/4 strips with it might add on more work in sanding (there's always too much of this) and making sure the router isn't taking too much or too little, which could cause poorly-fitting joints. IMO, the 1/4 "canoe bits" are just more versatile and easier to use.

There's also a 1/4 depth bit, one-piece, similar to the 3/16 at a lower price, but some other outfit carries it - I saw it offered at another site and some searching around could probably find it.

PS... make sure your router can take 1/2" shanks if going with the 3/16 bit - some routers only take 1/4" shanks.

I bought the 1/4" bit. Just setting it up now for next weekend.

The hassle of gettng the bit at JUST the right height makes me wish I had another bit and another router/router table. Anyone have an easier way then trial and error?

Sending the strip through another time, reversed, is sometimes enough to even things out, if the router or the strip's out a little.
