Hi all,

I'm making slow but steady progress on my new router, and I need some decent bits to use on it. I've previously used cheap ebay hss and carbide bits with geometries for metal. I've never used upcut / downcut / compression bits.

Onsrud and Amana are names that come up often as quality, but the vast majority of their stuff is imperial. I'm aware I can used imperial bits, but I'd prefer metric as I have metric collets, and I think in metric so it's much easier to design and process parts when I know the cutter radius easily.

Has anyone found a decent source (that will ship to Australia)?
We pay a huge premium locally, so I expect to be buying overseas.

Help is appreciated.

Onsrud carries router bits and endmills in both metric and imperial... Download their catalog online.

louie, thanks for the reply. I'm aware Onsrud produce metric bits, I'm struggling to find where to buy them / someone who will ship internationally.

Can't buy direct? I believe onsrud has a distributer in Europe...
