    Am wanting to cut a 35 mm radius into a piece of walnut trouble is I have either a 32 mm or a 38 mm radius cutter, does anyone know where I can get a 35mm radius cutter from???

    Also does anyone know anywhere to go on a good course for routing as I find it so frustrating!

    regards,

    Matt

    If you mean 35mm diameter that is a standard size for kitchen door hinges. Try Wealden Tools T1835. If it really is 35mm radius (70mm diameter) then it's too big to use on a router

    Sorry, meant 35mm diameter and thanks for the link but there is only a 32 mm cutter and a 38 mm cutter.

    regards,

    Dimension A is the diameter. There are actually 15, 20, 22, 25, 26, 30, 35, 40 and 50.8mm dameter cutters offered by Wealden and they are designed for use in either a drill press or router. The T1835 is a 35mm cutter. I have one in my kit for drilling out for door hinges..........

    As Scrit says the Wealden one is fine and cost includes VAT and delivery, I've got the same cutter. Beware of buying cheaper hinge drills as they may not be suitable for the speed that a router can reach.

    What you meant was that you wanted to work a 35mm radius cove cut on an edge, or is it? - not quite what you expressed, though. Either way you'll struggle to get a router cutter which does exactly what you require. All the manufacturers make standard sizes and that's that. 32mm radius is the metric equivalent of 1-1/4in whilst 38mm radius is the metric equivalent of 1-1/2in and in Imperial days at those sorts of sizes moulding planes would have gone up in 1/4in increments as well. You can get a bespoke cutter made by companies such as Titman, although the probably cost is £70 to £90 + VAT, alternatively the job could be done by someone using a spindle moulder, although once again a set of HSS knives would cost at least £40 + VAT. Is there any reason why you can't work with standard profiles?
