I was considering the depth of cut of the slot bits that I have. In the case of a spline here I can see the longer the better.

what slot ''bits'' do you have??

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

It looks like the 1/4" slot cutter from my T & G set has got the deepest cut...1/2 inch

But if I knew exactly the bit for the job, I could let my fingers do the walking...

get yourself a slot cutting set... or piece together as you see fit...
w/ the right bearing you can go up to 13/16'' deep..
Freud, CMT and Whiteside make the best stacked slot cutters...
also you can install smaller dia bearings for deeper cuts or still larger bearings for shallower slots... this takes additional accessory bearings sized individually or from a set...

I defer to Stick and the other guys that do a lot of this, Dave, my background was residential construction, not cabinetmaking. This is relatively new to me also (15 yrs).
I love this Forum...I've learned so much from the other members here. Something new every day.

Same here, but monthly. Tons of good advice. I'm a total newbie to routing. I've used em, I've trued up edges, splined together flooring planks, and other flooring projects requiring a router.
I've just never been trained or told how to. I've learned by seat of the pants.
..................I'm a bit off topic.
.....carry on.

No need to be formal, Randy, Dan's good. The 'in Van(couver)' is where I used to live. Now I walk across the street to the beach and look across the straight to the city. Don't miss it.

Welcome to the fray, i'd say you are right on topic.
As for router skills, you see I only know enough to get into dilemmas.
No better place to learn than here.

Was also glad to learn Dan doesn't live in a van.......
