    Hello,

    I am trying to find a surfacing bit and t-slot bit (though I think the T-slot bit can be used for surfacing). I've been looking one amazon and aliexpress but can't find anything. And spoil board surface cutters are like $150 minimum on other sites. Does anyone know of a site here in Europe that is reasonably priced for these types of bits ?

    ll the best,

    G.

    If you can wait for delivery the Chinese 'bottom cleaning' 30mm bits are about 4 including postage.

    Whoops, too late I ordered them in the UK :) But I got the 25mm one. Don't mind waiting twice the time for the board to be surfaced, instead of paying 44 pounds. I'll buy the 50mm from AliExpress :D Thanks Boyan and cropwell ! How about t-slot cutters ? Can't find them on AliExpress... ?

    So what happened? Did somebody try the cheap ones from ebay. Are they any good?

    Just bougth 1/2 shaft 2" bottom cleaning bit for 10 euro , shipping included. Decided to go for 1 only to see how it works. I see now sb selling 70mm one. But i think for 3kw spindle like mine, 50mm is the limit.

    I bought a Chinese 22m bottomer for 2.08 and a 30mm one for 3.43 + 1.00 postage. Both did the job and are good for making MDF dust and this inspired me to make a dust shoe. The brush is attached to the base by magnets, to allow easy removal for tool changes. I have yet to test it as I have already surfaced the bed.
