The real luxury of this particular set is the sixteen bearing collars (from 1/16-1") that give you the flexibility to slip on the appropriate collar to achieve whatever depth rabbet you need. This is a helpful improvement over the old method of switching out the bearing itself where you were limited by the availability of bearings with different outside diameters (a lot of research would be necessary to find the size and/or supplier).
With this system a pair of the standard 1/2" bearings sandwich a solid anodized aluminum (I think) collar of differing depth--you only need to remove the top one (or bottom depending on the orientation of the router), slip off the "donut" and replace it with another one of differnt size, sandwich it with the top bearing, and screw it all together with the hex screw. The nice thing about this is its speed--you can easily switch out the collar while the bit is in the router's collet.
One rather small complaint would be that in some cases both bearings pull out with the collar--this happens more often if the collar has seen some use between changings--its annoying, but nonetheless simple to, replace the bottom bearing and washer; i'm not sure how this could be prevented design-wise--you want the fit to be sufficiently tight to eliminate any lateral slop (wobble) in the bits rotation. Sometimes the bearing gets stuck in the collar and can be stubborn to remove--I find using a sharpened pencil works best since it is soft enough to wedge into the bit and not risk damaging the inside of the collar or the supplied bearing.Read more ›
I agree with the prior review that the bit itself is huge. You'll need a full sized router to run this and be sure to keep it on a slower speed. The router by itself is one of the more dangerous shop tools and with this thing attached it's downright deadly. Make sure everything is fully secure before turning it on. Also be really sure that the bit can spin within the router base without touching the sides of the opening. When I inserted this, I noticed that my base plate was slightly off and the bit hit up against it as I spun the bit with my fingers (with the router unplugged of course), so I had to tweak the base to fit the bit. Another downside is the bit doesn't fit with the vacuum attachment so I'm back to sweeping up router shreds again.
The allen wrench and bearings that remove and secure the templates are tiny. I can envision these getting lost. Never fear -- the bag has the part number just in case you lose it. And I'm pretty sure I will.
Four stars because for the life of me I don't know why the bit is this large.Read more ›

Great tool, easy to set up, and cuts precision rabbets. I highly recommend this set. My only gripe is that they really need to mark the size on each collar. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Rob
fantastic product, I am very happy with the quality of this product and it was exactly as describedPublished 16 months ago by Bradley Apicella
Best complete set for rabbet cutting out there and the deepest cutting bit I could find without paying double for one that was 1/8" deeper. Very pleased.
Bought this to build a router table and several other projects. You can not go wrong with CMT. The only thing I did was mark the size on each collar with a permanent marker.Published on June 5, 2013 by JCook
