I had been coveting this set for some time before I just recently had a good reason to buy it--it is everything you could want in a set of rabbeting bits.

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.

After struggling to make precision rabbets on plywood, I set about looking for an undersized rabbeting bit set (as most people are aware, 1/4" ply isn't really 1/4", nor is 3/4" really 3/4") and I'm too impatient to fiddle with a shop jig. I couldn't find any except for this set and an Amana set, both about the same price. I decided to buy this one since it came with a full set of undersized rabbet bits as well as every other conceivable size I could ask for. The price is steep - about half the price of my router! But the cuts are really nice. I practiced on some scrap wood and then cut the real thing and they really are perfectly sized. I'll never have to worry about rabbeting again.

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.

Every custom woodworking shop should have this set. Well made, great case, cuts beautifully, and most importantly lots of options you always wish you had on depths while cutting rabbets. I will use it in a hand router, but you had better know what you are doing. I remember doing all kinds of crazy things on an old over arm router that we can now do more safely with this set.

First time buyer of any CMT tooling. I wanted a portable set of bits that would leave me searching for the right size. This set has it all. A very good quality tool and a great case. Sure, the text on the aluminum spacers wear out pretty quickly but, the case makes it easy to tell them apart. Great set for the money.

A VERY nice set to make rabbeting easy. I wish each of the bits were labeled though. You literally have to measure the collars to find out which size you have to compare to the chart for rabbeting size. Other than that, it's awesome!
