The Freud bit set I’m using to build some cabinet doors resulted in extended tenons that are ~7/32” thick. I have a Delta Table top Mortising Machine, but the smallest chisel bit I have is 1/4”. Does anyone know of a source for smaller chisel bits? My only recourse is to drill and chisel out the mortises….oh, how I hate hand tools—lol. Thanks.

If you can’t find the bit, you could also rout the mortise with a 7/32” spiral upcut.

Another solution would be to pick up some 1/64” veneer, and add a piece to each side of the tenon, then cut the mortise with a 1/4” bit.

I was thinking veneer as well.
