I was watching episode 1005 where Bob was cutting mortise and tenon joints in the face frame for the bookcase part of the oak secretary. He used what looked like a dual slot cutting bit to form the tenon, I had never seen that before. The guy at my favorite tool shop had never heard of such a thing either. Does anyone know a manufacturer for that bit. I have checked with a couple router bit manufacturers and I did not see any bits that looked similar. Any help would be appreciated.

I found the tongue and groove set made by Freud, and the slot cutting bits made by almost all the bit manufacturers. However, I noticed that both of these setups will not cut tenons longer than 7/8 to 1". When I was making the baby crib for my new daughter, the plans called for some tenons as long as 1 3/8". I have also read some plans using longer tenons especially on through tenons. Is there a way to cut these with the router? I thought about using a dado or mortising bit to clean off both faces, but the setup is a little more crucial than with the slot cutter. Any ideas?
