Correct bit to use.

I need to cut a 3.5 inch long by 3/4 inch deep notch in a piece of 3/4 thick stock. What bit would work best for this if router is attached to a router table?

Terry, this is where a miter fence comes in handy. Any size bit will make a cut through the stock, a wider bit will do your 3-1/2" notch in fewer passes. Since I am guessing that you want a nice clean edge your best choice is to use a plunge bit, either spiral or straight cutting.
how do you do this in 3/4" stock?. I don't understand.
You would slide the fence off the table and use the miter attachment to guide the wood across the bit, making passes until the proper width of notch is reached.
