I’m getting ready to make some raised panel doors and drawers for my kitchen remodel and have a 2HP Craftsman router/table combo. This router would probably handle my needs if I go slow and make multiple passes with a speed controller, but my router only accomodates a 1/4” shank. I’ve found 1/4” rail & stile bits and even a 1/4” ogee raised panel bit from MLCS, but I can’t find an undercutter bit with 1/4” shank.
I’ve read lots of posts with guys saying they don’t trust a bit that big with a shank that small, but I assume MLCS wouldn’t make them or sell them without safety testing them first.
Option 1: find a 1/4” shank undercutter bit! Anyone have any leads or other tricks? Do the undercut on the table saw maybe?
Thanks for any advice, sorry for the noobie questions!
