Just 3 hp you're just as well off with a router.
Under heavy use that 3 HP router will be toast after a couple weeks. Universal motors are not designed for a long life at full power. Induction motors on stationary machinery are pretty much standard, and will last many years if properly overload protected. For tongue and groove, 3 HP is plenty, as long as it's a few feet for a universal motor.
