Eagle America has a stepped rabbet bit available that looks interesting. As
a newbie, I wanted to get some opinions about it from the more experienced
members here. It seems to me that you could achieve the same results using a
standard rabbeting bit along with multiple passes. They state that you can
perform the cut in one pass with their bit.
Using the dimensions from their bit as a reference, along with a standard
rabbeting bit, would I be correct in thinking that you could cut a rabbet
3/4" wide (C1 + C2) by 11/32" deep (L1) on the first pass and then cut a
second rabbet 3/8" wide (C1) by either 1/8" or 1/4" deep (L2) on the second
pass? I suppose that it might take more than just two passes, depending upon
how much material is being removed, but I'm not questioning that aspect of
it. I'm just curious as to the technique involved to accomplish the same
task as their bit.
Just trying to learn. Thanks in advance to those who post a reply here.
