Freud’s newest rail-and-stile bit sets not only cut standard cope-and-stick profiles, but also create full-length (or less) tenons. The key is the two-part rail bit. After cutting the ends of the rails, you remove the top section of the bit and continue using the cutter to increase the length of the tenon. But is it as simple as it sounds? I requested a set to find out.
FMT too much work to use
The actual super FMT mortiser was too hard to learn to use and set up (plus poor instructional manual). Not worth the [$] it cost. I have sent it back. I have tried just about all the mortiser jigs on the market; none were satisfactory. I will buy the domino next.
(1)The vacuum box has a small hole for attachment to the vacuum hose so only the chips made very near the box are collected. When the router bit is cutting on the opposite side of the tenon, no chipsare collected (2) The box gets in the way when positioning the hold-down clamps because it blocks several of the available holes. (3) at [$], it is way too expensive!
Works exactly as promised!
GREAT ACCESSORY TO THE SUPER FMT!
