From the looks of things it seems the blades need to be lined up, are you using the original shims and bearings that came with the bit? Honestly I would think it wouldn't matter if the two blades didn't line up, but evidently something is different. This bit IS designed to be used as a single and double cutter, right? Same bit to make the tongue and the groove?
