I am finally, after many years, going to give the D4R a go. I cannot find the two bits, No. 80-8 12’’ 8° and No. 140-5/16” straight bits. I have a whole set of bits for the jig I ordered years ago when I got the jig but no bits with these #’s in it.
My question is, other than ordering them from Leigh, what options do I have?
There is a Woodcraft in town but I only see sets.
Thank you.

FWIW – Whiteside sells kits of bits for the Leigh jigs,

they also sell the individual bits:

If a person goes here, and mentions they go to, errrrrr, Woodnet maybe, you will get a nice discount.

Someone here told me about it…....Wink wink, nudge nudge.
