Hi, I have a need to route 1/16" slots with a router bit. I see Dremel offers the Dremel 650 1/8" Straight Router Bit. Is there a 1/16" Straight Router bit with a 1/8" shank available? Would anyone know of any other manufactures that offer this bit? Thank you.

Hi Buzz Saw and welcome to the forum

As far as router bits go, you are out of luck. On the other hand, you might be able to get by with the #569 cutting bit. This bit fits your requirements of a 1/8" shank with a 1/16" cut. The next closest would be the #109 engraving cutter but it has a 3/32" shank.

Hope that helps

Looks like Bruce is faster on the mouse than I

I had looked on Widget Supply but they had the standard size router bits. I had forgotten about Micro Mark, which is where you will end up when following Bruce's link. I had also forgotten to check with E-hobby Tools. Both are good sources for hard to find items.

BTW the router bit you see when following the link Bruce provided looks much like the #569 cutting bit mentioned in my post.

Hi All,

Thanks for all the (Dremel) help. www.widgetsupply.com replied that they didn't have anything like this. I found two different choices of bits I was looking for, 1/16" diameter Straight Router bit with 1/8" shank.

Here's what I bought:

Micro-Mark - 1/16 INCH ROUTER, DRILL POINT (1/8 INCH SHANK) This bit is made of solid carbide... "30 times stronger than steel", they claim.

McMaster-Carr, see p/n: 8881A11
End Mill, Straight Flute - This is actually a mill bit, also solid carbide.
http://www.mcmaster.com/

One, or both, of these two bits should do the job. BTW - I'm using these bits in a Dremel MultiPro, Model 395 with the Dremel 231 Shaper/Router Table, to de-panelize printed circuit boards which came four up in a panel.
