Im at the point of routing my truss rod curve and decided to do it how Roman Rist does it. This pic is Icegator's cutting bit and was wondering what do I all need to get. I looked at Amana 3/16 cuttting bit but do I get the 1/4 arbor,bearings, and cutting bit all seperate?

How many bearings do I get then? or do i get the complete setup?

When I ordered mine I got the arbor and the cutter separate. Then I had a machine shop make a spacer for mine. Originally I was being a tight wad and used washers as spaces. Even though I thought I tightened the snot of the cutter, the washers ended up compressing a bit more and made my truss rod channel crooked. What I did was pretty dumb and dangerous as well. It wasn't balanced very well either. The spacer cost me 6 bucks at a machine shop.
