    I honestly can’t find them on Lee valleys new website.
    I spent my lunch break searching and found no spiral bits with a bearing.

      Was looking into the Oneida one, disappointing to hear it mat break easily as well.
      Crappy tire is pretty great with their warranty stuff.
      I think 3 years.
      You can probably take it in and get a new one!

        I don't think I've ever seen one at Lee Valley actually..

          Ah, yes bearing ones are trickier to find! Freud makes a cheap one but I just use a bushing

            Oh okay that makes sense.
            All my templates are designed tend to work with top bearing bits. 1-1.

              Somebody had Triton at the Woodstock woodshow but I can’t remember who. Here is a list of dealers within a 250km radius of my place. Enter your postal code and you might get some different/closer options for yourself. I have a triton and so far like it but it also gets very little use as most of my routing is in my router table.

                Well if that's the only way, Whiteside makes one... But at $200 it isn't for the faint of heart (or wallet)

                  I bought a couple off eBay a long time ago. Sometimes you have to be patient, but the automated search engine work very well.

                    True, however it was a gift and I don't have the receipt. I've managed to warranty stuff before without but it was a HUGE hassle. They almost wouldn't cover it, stating they couldn't prove I bought it within the warranty period. I then pointed out that the product was new and had not been available longer than the warranty.
