Am I missing something


I'm looking for a rail & stile bit set and this seems like a good price but no specs for the bits. The 1/4" spec seems to indicate this set and similar are for 3/4" stock.

Are these any good? A brief search makes this look like a good buy.
Can I run that monster bit in a PC693VS?

Define " a good buy".
Probably a good deal for one or two times use.
This is about half the price you need to pay for a set that will start giving you any mileage.

You can run the panel raising bit in a PC693 if you make several passes at it. Big bits like that work much better in the really big routers. Jim

The bits are 1/2" shank. I meant this 1/4" spec.

That 1/4 groove is typical for 3/4" stock. Jim

Can't answer your question about the router, but this appears to be the same set at a much better price:

I have a couple of holbren bits and they're as good as any other. And I know that the carbide on the holbren bits is 3/32" thick.

Thanks! For $40 I'm willing to give them a shot. I still ocassionaly use the cheap carbide bits I bought from sears years ago.

Years ago, the SEARS carbide bits were very good. I still have some from the middle seventies. Hank
