Default Looking for a round nose bit...

I'm looking for a round nose bit for use in my router table. This bit is out there. I know it is. I've seen photos online. I just can't find what I'm looking for this afternoon.

I describe it as a round nose. I have several round nose bits but they are for plunging. I want a round nose, or a full 180 degree cove bit, with a bearing I can use for edge finishing. I want to create a groove along the edge of some curved shapes.

Any suggestions?

Update - I'm looking for something like Amana Tool AMS-557 except the cutting edge needs to extend far enough beyond the shank to allow a depth of 1/2 the diameter.

Try searching for edge fluting router bits.

That's what I'm looking for except the bit needs to be capable of cutting a full half circle into the edge.

For this project, I'm looking for a cove with a radius of 5/16" (depth into the material) and a cutting height at the edge of material of 5/8" (2 times the radius = diameter).

I found this earlier today. Unfortunately, I can't find the size I need.

Slot cutting bits are out of the question due to size/diameter?

Whiteside 6715A slot cutting bit
Maybe an arbor w/ sized bearings to fit what you need?

I googled “custom router bits” and found sites like https://www.vexorcwt.com/custom-router-bits and https://orbittools.com/ and https://ridgecarbidetool.com/custom-...hoCXlAQAvD_BwE. There are many. One forum post on sawmillcreek said Whiteside will apparently do custom router bits too.

Magnate is my go-to for these kinds of odd bits. They have this one in stock.
