Freud raised panel bits?
I just received a Rockler order today. One of the items was a Freud Quadra-Cut Ogee Raised Panel Bit with Backcutter. Item #38231. As I started to install it, I noticed it had no bearing between profile and back cutter. I have about 15 of these type of cutters, lots of different brands, they all have the bearing. This is my first Freud of this type.
If any of you have used this set, does it have a bearing or did you have to install one. Or use it as is, seems to me it will burn, when I cut the arches. I doing the tombstone arched doors, in red oak! The straight cuts will be no problem as I can use the fence.
Do not want to ruin a $100.00 bit!

Their data sheet shows it with no bearing.
