I was looking around on Amazon for a 1/4 inch slot cutting router bit and ran across this. VERY COOL. Now if it came with a set of different depth cutting bearings it would be perfect!

You might be able to use the bearings from a rabbeting bit.

Yonicos are pretty hit and miss IMO

might be worth a try, but i don’t have a lot of faith in their bearing bits

that’s my video… the replacement came with a crappy bearing, but i subbed out one of my others so decided to keep it

Amazon only allows uploading one video, but the second one from overhead shows the bearing threaded off center AND off-axis (89.5 degrees)

YMMV

I have this set:

you can order a bearing set with different diameter bearings. Not the highest quality but for the minimum amount of slot cutting I do with the router it has served me very well.

I sure wouldn’t want to use the entire stack with that wimpy little 1/4” shank. Scary!
