It will work well on end grain, hard to get tearout (major issue with face grain). I think my bit is 2”, light passes to allow good control. Dont rush the cutting – trying to save time there after the time put into a slide, rails, and mounting makes no sense. It will leave lines between passes almost impossible to prevent. Sand or handplane to remove.
