Custom Router Bits

Q. Is it possible to get a custom-made router bit to match an old molding profile?

A. Yes, it is! Andrews Toolworks is one company in the businessof making one-of-a-kind carbide bits. Prices range from $155 to $300for a single bit. So if you only have a few feet of molding to run,there are more economical ways of reproducing old moldings (see “MakeYour Own Tablesaw Moldings,” AW #110, October 2004). The cost of thebit is driven more by its diameter than the height or complexity of theprofile. Andrews' custom bits are made with high-quality Rc45 Swedishcarbide. You can order them with 1/4-in. or 1/2-in. shanks, and withbearings, if needed. Ordering starts with a cost estimate based on asample or a dimensioned sketch. Next comes a computer drawing of thebit with a final cost. Once you give the go-ahead, expect to wait threeto four weeks for delivery of your bit.
