Hi nathan - Hard to find any info on that set. Best I could find was on the skil site which said 1/2 rail stile set, 1/2" shank. That leads me to believe you're assesment is probably correct. I haven't any experience with Skil bits, I've seen them in Wal-Mart but haven't been impressed enough to give them a try. You might try here for a budget set that will do 3/4" stock. So far everything I've tried from here has been a decent value.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

HI

We have some members that tried the Skil bit set and took them back and got a good set.

Default thanks for reply

thankyou for the replys. I am trying hard to get used to this forum. I am hoping to make some friends here. The package said 1/2 -3/4 stock. In my opinion it is aimed more for 1/2'' stock. Im not going to return it because I can see where it may be usefull for some cabinets. I probally should have researched better before i bought it. I guess i had to learn the hardway. I have been framing new constuction res, homes for 17 years. I have always loved working with wood. I am new to cabinet biulding and wood furniture. I am in love with it already. I have a lot to learn. I ve biult three sets of cabinets so far , one of which was raised panel doors. I used a table saw for everything(panel-stiles-rails). I would greatly appreciate any information on most efficiant way to biuld raised panel doors. I only have routing table with dewault 1/2'' collet router.
