  • Router bit for regrooving 3/4 strip flooring?

    Hello-

    I'm in the process of reflooring a section of hardwood floor that was badly stained. After I took up the strips I took the nails out of them, and chopped off the stained areas with a miter saw. There's plenty of good wood left over, but since they're only pieces, the tongues/grooves are missing from the sides.

    Does Home Depot/Lowes sell a router bit to regroove/retongue standard-sized 3/4" thick wood?

    Thanks.

    -TM

    I think Woodline Az. sells a T&G set.
    Only a surfer knows the feeling. Billabong ca. 1985 or so

          Just and FYI, becareful of tear out on the end grain. I installed a fir floor and used a rabbit bit to put tongues on the ends of some boards going into a breadboard edge, and I got a lot of tear out. I would have been better milling them on my tablesaw, making a relief cut first.

            or you can just use a backer-board....

              Well, I WOULD have done that if I had remembered it! Live and learn (again and again and again...)
