Long 1/8" router bit?
#11
  
I have a 1/8" spiral bit (Whiteside, I think) that fits my trim router, but is too short for my table router. Does anyone make a long version? Searches are coming up short. End mill would be fine, as long as it has a 1/4" shank to fit my small collet.

Thanks.

The longer the bit the more weaker it becomes after a certain size. Amana makes a longer one.

Thank you! Absolutely true, but for what I use this for, it should work fine.

Thanks for the link.

[EDIT] Thanks, but that is a 1/4" cutter. I need 1/8" on the cutting end.

Thank you. That is the kit I own -- that's where I got the bit I have. It's not very long. For good reason, of course.

Oh, it is. 

But I need 1/4" shank to fit my collet, tapering down to 1/8" at the cutting end. But with a long shank. I believe the one you linked to meets the long length requirement, but it has a 1/4" cutting end. If I am reading it correctly.

Well that's smart. Thank you. I didn't know they existed until now.

I was batching out a project earlier this year that required a bunch of stopped 1/8" dadoes along the grain, about a quarter of an inch deep. Snapped two Freud 1/8 spirals in fairly rapid succession. Switched to a Whiteside RD1600 because it was available at the local Woodcraft, and I figured I might as well snap cheaper bits. Still on the same Whiteside bit some 60 dadoes later. So for what it is worth, I'd also stick with the bit you have, and go with a collet extender if necessary.
Math is tough. Let's go shopping!
