I bought the Lee Valley Drawer Lock bit (16J76.62) and I am perplexed about
how to set it up properly for 3/4" fronts and 3/4" sides. The double
profile bit is 3/4" high. I sure would appreciate some guidance.

Too bad, Lee Valley doesn't give any instructions at all. That is
Rockler has excellent full color instructions on their site in a PDF file.
The bit should work identically to your Lee Valley. Ignore the instruction
to use their Jig-it. Make some test cuts in for both faces and adjust the
height until the pieces fit together properly. The idea is that you set the
height once and use the same setting for both boards that will fit together
for the drawer. Be sure you use good technique and consistent pressure when
using the bit.
