Hello all. I've been lurking for a while and have a question. I have some experience with routers, but have never used a slotting bit. I just got a Whiteside, consisting of the arbor, a bearing, two washers, a nut and the cutting disc (3 cutters).
To attach the cutting disc, should I tighten the arbor into the collet, then tighten the nut (washer each side)? Can't see another way of tightening, short of grabbing the shank with some pliers, which sounds horrible.
Also, is it necessary to use the bearing? I'll be using the bit in a table router.
