Default raised panel

I am considering purchasing a Freud raised panel and stile/rail router bit set. Theis will be used on a Bosch 2.25 HP router and table setup.

I like the ogee raise panel Quadracut but am debating the plain versus back-cutter bit. What do you experienced craftsmen recommend?

Thanks,
Milo

I prefer the back cutter. It's saves extra time & extra setup.

Back cutters make the milling process a little different.

If you go with several passes to the final cut, the fence is progressively moved into the bearing (rub collar) and the backcutter bit is set to height from the get go.

With out the backcutter, you can progressively raise the bit to final cut and the fence is set to position from the get go.

No problem with either way and most times the back cutter allows for a fixed thickness of edge to insert into rail and stile. The "plain" cutter allows for custom edge thickness if needed.


I usually end up backcutting regardless, unless I'm using thinner panel stock.

You can also fine tune the thickness of the tenon with a back cutter. Most come with shims for this. If you find that you do not need the back cutter you can take the cutter off.

Good point James,

I've only got a few backcutter sets and use those profiles as is. Most of my profiles don't have the backcutters and need a separate cut to thickness.
