Style Name: Adjustable Tongue and Groove Router Bit Set, 1/2-Inch Shank Verified Purchase
At first I thought how could Freud have created an adjustable groove bit, with the seemingly single cutter, and make it adjustable. Then I discovered that it really was two cutters that were sandwiched together. Their carbide tip is a lot wider than the plates that hold them. Additionally they are offset, so when they are sandwiched without any spacers, they are just like having the one bit. With the included spacers, you can adjust that groove cutter to a nice range of sizes.

Additionally the two large cutters that make up the tongue bit are adjustable with the spacers that are provided. They are stacked on the bit so you don't have to go looking for them when you want to make a change.

I have a lot of Freud bits, and I have bought all of them from Amazon. The price and convenience can't be beat. The one complaint that I have is that Freud does not wrap these bits in a way that protects them from a UPS shipment. Do you know what UPS stands for? Unbelievably Pulverized Shipments. :-) With carbide tipped bits, which are super brittle, rolling around in the box, after they come loose from the snap together plastic carrying enclosure, they are left to do battle with one another. Consequently, check your faces for defects when you get them. Amazon has the greatest customer service.

All in all a great set of bits, highly recommended.

Style Name: Adjustable Tongue and Groove Router Bit Set, 1/2-Inch Shank
In the past I have used my table saw tenoning jig to make shaker style cabinet doors, but I found that a really accurate set up was overly time consuming. I purchased the tongue and groove router bit set and found it to be a more accurate and quicker way to form these joints. With the large number of spacers provided, you can allow the perfect tolerance space for glue and the joints come out perfect. Use a variable speed router in a router table.

Style Name: 2-Inch Drawer Lock Bit Verified Purchase
Honestly I'd give this 5 stars because of the nice joints it makes, but it loses one for absence of documentation. Normally I would not expect documentation with a router bit but this one is pretty tricky to use and should come with instructions.
First, nowhere in the packaging or on Amazon's site does it tell you that the drawer front MUST be 3/4" and the side can be either 3/4" or 1/2".
Second, it comes with no instructions and the setup is not straightforward. I found good instructions on the web site of a different manufacturer of drawer lock bits.
Third, nowhere is it mentioned that one has to use a sacrificial zero clearance fence when making a drawer lock joint in cabinet grade plywood. I used a spare piece of poplar. My tip: get the height set using one sacrificial fence, then cut a new one for the cleanest joints, because it is crucial to have zero clearance between the top of the bit and the fence. Even 1/16" will result in significant tear-out.
Last, because the setup is so fiddly, I do not recommend you use this bit for just a couple joints. If you are going to do a run of drawers its worth the effort, but not for one or two.

Style Name: 1-11/32-Inch Window Sash Stile Router Bit Verified Purchase
This Freud 99-051 and 050 work as a set to give you complete sash making capabilities. My woodworking buying of equipment went into overdrive when I went into my local home center and saw how expensive it would be to replace the windows in my house. This Freud bit combination is making my intentions realizable. I made my first window sash and am ecstatic over how professional it looks. Each sash is the standard 1 3/8" thick, and has true divided light (French door style sash bars, and mullions) All done by using these two bits.
I must admit the instructions that come with the Freud bits leaves you a little dizzy. They eliminated all hand holding, and went into mechanical-arithmetic formulas for getting the job done. Then I discovered the CMT USA bit manufacturing instructions that are available at the CMTUSA.com web site under "How To" It is a lot more intuitive, whereas they give you step by step instructions. The thing about the CMT set is they are based on 5/8" of an inch spacing on one side, and 1/2" on the other. That makes for a lot of adjustment in doing the different stages. This Freud bit set, which is similar to the CMT in every way, except one. They are 9/16" on both sides, with 1/4" tongue area in the center.
You could make a casement sash with these bits, and simply build a frame to mount it in, and include the necessary configuring to allow for handles and opening mechanisms. That and a little weather-strip and you're set. This bit set also makes twin sashes for your standard double hungs. I bought a book here at Amazon called Windows and Skylights, and it went into a lot about making different style windows. Not about how to buy them, but about how to build them.

Style Name: 2-3/4-Inch Lock Miter Bit
Here's the trick

It took me a bit of trial and error but here's the easiest was to set it up.

You need some test blocks. 4 at a minimum and you're probably going to need more of the exact thickness your final stock is going to be.

For the final result you're going to need to run one edge horizontal and one vertical against the fence. So the difficulty in adjustment is height and fence position. Don't try to adjust both at the same time.

First run 2 cuts horizontal (board flat on the table) flip one board over and fit the jointed edges together. They should be flush; if they are not raise or lower until they are flush. If the boards are proud your not deep enough if they are recessed your to deep. Once you have this dimension flush move onto the vertical (boards up against the fence).

You can repeat the exact same technique for getting the fence position just right. Once you think you've got it run some fresh edges in the horizontal and vertical just to make sure and your should have a perfect miter corner.

Now save and label and these test blocks for future setups. If you need to miter the same thickness material again your final test blocks will make setup again a breeze.

I needed to do several fake beams along the ceiling the some corners. Doing 10' miters is tough own but this bit made it much easier during assembly.

Be aware of grain direction and make sure you not going against it; you will tear out and possible wreck your miter.
