Trying to locate a cutter that will edge/slot in a single pass. I have
found several T&G bits where the grooving cutter will actually mill the
entire edge (slot and the two remaining shoulders as well) however they
have a very shallow slot.
I am trying to mill a finished edge and as deep a slot possible on sawn
material 3/4" thick. My hopes were to avoid a second operation after
sawing (edge, then slot).
My hope was to track down a mandrel, two small straight cutters, and a
slotting cutter (all 1/4" thick) which I could stack to produce the
cutter I need. Any ideas?
I think that's "too much candy for a nickle"...
I doubt you can find that much for a 3/4" surface.
These folks sell more than anybody and here are

Not sure I follow the "nickle" part, price isnt really the issue but I
was hoping for a best case scenario of a non custom bit so I could have
multiples and sharpening standby's wouldnt be a problem.
Freud is by far the best option out there however they dont offer
different diameter straight cutters which could be coupled with a large
diameter slotter (and an appropriate mandrel and shims). This would be a
great option with all the routers out now capable of swinging large
diameter cutters (panel raising).
I would venture to guess a component based, stackable bit system,
somewhat like shaper cutters, is on the drawing table somewhere.
Thanks for the input,
