Default WTB: 1/4 shank groove bit in Toronto area

I'm in dire need of the "groove" part of a tongue and groove bit. I live in the Toronto area and have found a couple of stores that carry this bit in a 1/2 shank, but I am looking for 1/4.

Does anyone know a mortar and bricks store near Toronto that would carry such a bit ? I don;t have a fence on my router table but I suppose if I made one then I could use a slot bit, although it would not be as easy. I am a total newb.

Thanks.

Hi Glenn

Most mortar and bricks stores don't have the 1/4" shank T & G bit sets in stock
but here's one or two sets that will not brake the bank..

2 pc 1/4" Shank Tongue & Groove Assembly Router Bit Set | eBay

11pc 1/4" Shank Slot, Tongue & Groove Router Bit Set | eBay

Hi Glenn - Welcome to the forum
What Bj said about the bit. I would suggest you go ahead and get a fence on your router table as well. It's needed a majority of the time, at least mine is.

John Schaben

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

Lots of slot cutters come with bearings. This is just one example. John is still right, you would be able to put a fence to good use.
Look at the center right of the page in this link.

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.

Hello!

IMHO:

Those bits do good works.
They are destined for table router use onlyy, to big, to dangerous
for hand-held routing.

You need a side fence on your table to use them, the fence limits the depht of cut.
Could break a 1/4 easyly taking too much wood at a time.

And only at last pass, the bearing toutches the wood.

I would go for Bob's 11 set, handy to have a good choice of sizes.

Regards.
