    The problem is, they deform with the heat from the bit. I have a rub colar from my old router bit drwer that I keep on the 90deg V bit. I had a 1/2" one slide off an expensive 1/2" upcut straight bit into the carve and ruin the bit. The main puropse that I see is the make the first and second insertion of the bit match so you don't get a "refind".

    Once you have your 1st set of stop collarr you should not have to get packets frrom LHR! You simply buy 1/2 or 1/4" tubing from the local hardware store, use a razor knife, and cut your own!

    I started using a nylon spacer, .25 thick, .257 inside diameter, get them at lowes 2 for .92 cents for the 1/4 inch shaft bits.

    No deforming so far because of heat, heat rated to 158 degrees.

    I only use the tubing on the 1/4 inch round nose.

    Working the same set up for the 1/2 inch shaft bits.

    No errors on bit measurements any longer.

    I like just to keep the carving bit in durning the first insertion to save on ware and tear of the machine and only change bits when running the part. hitting contune seem to work.

    I use the same thing. I have the full set but just use the 1/4 and 1/2 from it.

    I use O-rings, with a dab of CA glue on the cutting bit side. Has held in place and works great for me. Got the O-ring kit from harbor Freight, believe it was about $7
    Using Designer 1.187, STL importer, Center line, conforming vectors, scanning probe/PE, and the ROCK chuck.
