    Hey Bill,
    I had bought the Lee Valley 1/8th radius canoe bits when I was trying to figure out what to do with this rib canoe. Never used them, part numbers 16j4201 and 16j4203. Blowout sale of half price of what they ask for them.

    MLCS is the source for the flute and bead bits. They worked with several forum members and made them. They make the 1/4", 5/16" & 3/8" dia. in both 1/4" & 1/2" shank sizes. I used the 1/4" before the 5/16" came out and a lot of guys are using the 5/16" because the edges on the cove are not nearly so fragile and it does make a difference. IMHO Their website is as follows:
