    Vortex are the best us bits I know of. Should be easy to get in Canada I would have thought.

    These were cut with an upcut bit.
    They are very clean edges. That's interesting. You must have quite a z clearance there. 5axis?

    They are sample pieces, only 3" long. Done on my DIY machine.

    Yonico down cut endmills are available on Amazon.ca.
    I've only begun testing this brand but so far so good.
    Btw it looks like the posties are going on strike soon .

    Anyone who says "It only goes together one way" has no imagination.

    The box joint pics I posted earlier were done with a Yonico bit from Amazon.

    Not the same brand but I did find this 1/8" downcut with an 1/8" shank on EBay. Seems deccent quality! https://www.ebay.ca/itm/151926815022. I should add that the seller said it would work fine for wood, which is how I intend on using it.

    Most of the major router bit manufacturers don't make 1/8" shank bits, because handheld routers don't have 1/8" collets.
    Ebay is your best bet for 1/8" shank tools. You'll pay a fraction of what you'll pay anywhere else.

    I noticed that Lee Valley is offering 1/8" down cut bits for dremels, I assume they are fine for CNC routers. Not sure on the OAL, but here's a link Mini Downcut Spiral Bits - Lee Valley Tools
