I have a 5.5" brand new German silver baucher bit - not an eggbutt, I know, but a very nice bit, not thick in the mouth. Ordered it on line - cost me a heap - asked for a 5-1/4 and got a 5.5 instead. No longer have that horse and can't see that I'll ever use it. Would you like to try it out? Since you're not far from me ... will have to find it first, though!
