Default Freud raised panel bit????

I just received a Rockler order today. One of the items was a Freud Quadra-Cut Ogee Raised Panel Bit with Backcutter. Item #38231. As I started to install it, I noticed it had no bearing between profile and back cutter. I have about 15 of these type of cutters, lots of different brands, they all have the bearing. This is my first Freud of this type.
If any of you have used this set, does it have a bearing or did you have to install one. Or use it as is, seems to me it will burn, when I cut the arches. I'm doing the tombstone arched doors, in red oak! The straight cuts will be no problem as I can use the fence.
but I don't want to ruin a $100.00 bit!!!
Thanks

Cut it twice, and it's still too short!

HI Harry

That's the way they come...no bearing

It will put some red paint on the panel edge and some burn marks but it's no big deal because you can't see it but take care of the heat on the bit,it will get hotter than the norm with a bearing.

thanks,
I been using it. It does a nice job, great finish but I STILL think it should have a bearing. I would like it better if it were 1/2" smaller in dia. Vaccum system can't suck the chips away fast enough. Makes a mess compared to the ones I been using! But that's why we have brooms, right?
Thanks again<
