    Oh that's brutal

    I think 3 years.
    You can probably take it in and get a new one!

    I spent my lunch break searching and found no spiral bits with a bearing.

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

    All my templates are designed tend to work with top bearing bits. 1-1.

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

    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.

    Was looking into the Oneida one, disappointing to hear it mat break easily as well.

    guitarchitect Any experience with this type??

    https://www.toolstoday.com/flush-tri...l-bearing.html

    "Up Shear and Down-Shear Angles
    – These shear angles cut faster, cleaner and lasts longer than straight angle because of the chip removal speed. Amana Tool® recommends using a shear angle in most instances especially where large diameters are used.

    These bits are essentially a plunge-cutting straight with a shank-mounted ball-bearing pilot. Versatile, useful for template/pattern routing of parts, joints, internal cuts, and can be used in handheld & table-mounted routers."

    That's a great point
    I am using this

    Just a basic easily obtainable freud top bearing bit.
    I tend to go through a few of them so I stick to something inexpensive that I can get locally.

    What brand are you using for bits?
    Do they work for edge trimming or plunge routing only?

    I have that router and it's pretty good in my experience.

    I use it mostly trimming with the edging plate kit and chip deflector or on a dovetail jig.
