Thread: Wood Router, Snapping Cutters
Personally I'd recommend single flute carbide cutters from aliexpress/eBay. The price is similar, they have more room for the chips and are stronger as purely carbide.
Thanks Jonathan. Are you aware of any straight flute 3mm (or 1/8") solid carbide that have a 6mm shank? I need to extend them out the collet a bit to clear the dust shoe. It's asking a bit much of a 3mm shank.
Actually I think cutwell might have some so I'll pop over there for a look.

Tried those 3mm cheap bits today and they performed ok on Mahogany, no breakage yet
I just bought another 9 of them. If you want a straight flute 3mm cutter with a 6mm shank I'm not sure there are many alternatives.
There are some similar ones on eBay with a shorter cutter length (7mm) which might last longer if you don't need a greater DOC.
