Chamfer Bit question

Barry Irby
I failed to chamfer the front edge of the Console I am building for my son. (Who knew he had such an eye for detail?)

I think I need a chamfer bit that will cut a 60* bevel. I looked on Google and found one by Amana for about $106 and one form Yonico for about $15. Both have 1/2" shanks. I would rather have one with a 1/4" shank which may be a "miniature".

This is funny, I know Amana but would not want to pay that much for something I will use for about five minutes. OTOH, never heard of Yonico and am scared of a REALLY cheap bit. Too far into this project to start over. Any suggestions?
