I thought that I would pass this along to the wood guys. Over on the woodnet forum mike jackson from leitztool.com occasionally post good deals on router bits and saw blades. The link below is an awesome deal on some up/down cut carbide spiral bits, they are under sized but for $20 instead of $85 might router can compensate. These are 1/2" shank,1/2" cut diameter, 1 3/8" cut length,3 1/2" OAL,2 flutes cutting up and 2 flutes cutting down-this prevents laminates from tearing out on the top and/or bottom.
Haven't used it yet, but here's my set up.
I ordered yesterday, delivered today, I got 3, and I'm going to get 3 more.
These are slice your hand just touching sharp, mine are listed as 0.493" dia...I've ordered from mike before, good people to deal with....no affiliation just happy customer.
