Default stile and rail bits,

hey guys i have a cheapo set of stile and rail bits but i hate them so im going to buy a good set, im looking at freud or bosch which do you guys think is better and how do you tell how thick of stock it will cut i know some are half and some 3/4 i want the three quarter but im not sure what dimensions that are given that tells you that i have looked at sets and they give a bunch of dimensions on everything but its kindof confusing to me thanks guys, the reason for wanting diffrent bits is my bits do not allow a snug enough fit for me, the one cuts to thick and deep and the other is the opposite so when u go to match them there is about a 1/16 of an inch gap inbetween them because one of the cutters doesnt cut deep enough, hopefully someone can make sense of what i have just tryed to explain.

The bit set below will cut 1/2" deep just like a shaper bit set.

There are also differant types of r&s bits...stacked, matched, etc...at least I think those are some of the proper terms I have seen.
My question is this... are there instructions, or a website or anything where it tells how to use the various types of router bits that may not be so obvious, and how to set them up?
Just looking for some interesting reading?

Hi torence

Sounds like you have your mind set, I would go with the Freud over the Bosch bits..

" i know how to use the bits " you must know about the trick, how to switch the bits out so all the joints come out right on the button without any sanding needed or to cut your time in half making the frames.

I have the Bosch bits and have been very satisfied with them. I went with Bosch becasue I don't have a variable speed router, and their maximum bit RPM is 27,500 which is the speed of my PC router.
