Default Slot Cutter

I have a project that requires a 1 7/8 slot! I'm assuming they are asking me to cut a 1" deep slot!

I can't find a slot cutter that can do that. Am I missing something?

Yes, depth by width by length is needed. And the reason why you need it would also be helpful since if it isn't possible with a router we might be able to suggest different tooling or an alternate method of accomplishing the same thing.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

I would like to hear more because those measurements you give really makes one think what are you wanting to build.

My guess it would be a 1 7/8" long slot like a biscuit slot.

Dan has agreed to pay off from the stash, provided that you are right in your assumption. If you loose, we get the dog.

Hi, sorry I missed you. I have gone to find myself, but if I return before I get back, please ask me to wait.

Is this on the edge of a board or are you really asking for a dado/groove on the face ?
