G’day

Welcome to the router forum.

Thank you for joining us

Most folks use a test piece to set up the bits and keep the test piece as a set up block.

I have a set of Freud raised panel and stile bits and I have made a lot of doors with them, when I first started, I used some odd pieces of rail and stile and tried a few times until I got it right, I kept one of each that fitted and have used them ever since to make an accurate set up at first try.

Hi

"tried a few times until I got it right" that's the big error with most door makers,if your stock is not the same thickest ever time, you can make your own setup blocks but it's not the same the norm. , it can be off by 1/32" or less and parts will not fit right.
If the bits are setup right for the stock you are going to use it will come out right every time...with almost no sanding the joints or the panel..
The real key is NOT to move the router up or down when you switch out the bits..and use a match set of bits..

I have no problem with timber thickness, as the norm for cabinet doors is 20mm and that is what I stick to, the only thing I forgot to mention, is that, one must make sure the plunge lock is on before routing or the set-up will be lost after a while.
