Measure the shank to see if it will cut at least a 1/4 inch slot. If not, I guess you could adjust your fence and make a second pass thus increasing the opening somewhat.

I have the Rockler version but only use it to make.....keyholes for hanging something on the wall.

That's my story and I'm stickin' to it!

Here's the LV comparison for sizes and prices:

With the free shipping event, the LV ones are at least $5 less expensive.
