I have used a 3/4 round or round over bit to take off / round over the edges. I now use a 45 degree router bit on a router table, and finish it with a spoke shave to get to a "D", done by by eye and feel, I keep meaning to make a template .
Good luck with the operation, fingers crossed.
On my previous reply I said that i used a 3/4 inch round-over bit, but on reflection it is more like 3/8 of an inch. Struggling to find a bigger radius on a 1/4 spindle.
Is the a 3/4 inch round over bit, and are you using it in a pillar drill?
David,it's a1" bit used in a router
a few? That's a few months worth! :)
Yeah, I'm looking towards to meeting you guys too.
If there's one thing I've seen characterising all the people in here it's sheer bloody mindedness and a headstrong will to keep things going to reach goals and accomplish things that other people only dream about. Your here so you must have that same drive as we all do.
