Topic tags/keywords: tongue and groove joinery cabinet making router milling

I want to cut ¼ X ¼ tongue and grooves to align bathroom vanity carcasses. Marc S method. I’m torn between Sommerfeld T&G set at 149.90
and a Freud 99-036 @69.99. With the freud I would like to make bearings oversize to make the cut ¼ deep. Yes I know just adjust the fence but the added confidence on the bearing controlling depth is a bonus. I already have a trim bit. I found these at Infinity and if I had a lathe I could make a collar myself.

Does anyone know the bearing sizes on the Freud cutter?

Any other suggestions for a T&G for ¼ X ¼ capable of ⅞ thickness?

Thanks in advance.

Just screw them together. I’ve built 100’s of cab boxes just use clamps, align and screw.

Seems like a lot of extra work, cost & aggravation.

Freud site says bearing is 7/8”.
