source for a 15 degree chamfer router bit
Hi all,
for my ongoing speaker project I need a 15 degree chamfer router bit with a metric shank (either 6 or 8 mm). The bit should have a pretty long cutting section, min 20 mm, 25 mm preferred.
I'm unable to find such a bit locally, even if I live in a big city. Does anybody knows a source for this router bit that is willing to ship to Italy?
Thanks, Ralf

Look for a dovetail bit- I think one of the standard angles is 14.
You'll have to organize something as a guide fence, I think.

CMT do them in 1/2" or 12mm. For that depth of cut, I doubt you'd get one in 6 or 8mm.

Pinkmouse, thanks for the tips about CMT.
However, I think the bit I need should exist: see this auction for a 1/4" shank (roughly 6 mm) bit: New 15 degree Bevel Edge Chamfer 1/4" Shank Router Bit

Use a straight bit and and wedge shaped router base.

I've never understood why routers don't come with an adjustable angle base.
