A friend showed me a combination rail and stile bit, (one that makes both cuts) with the complaint that it didnt cut the joint properly. On inspecting the test joint I noticed that the full depth of cut was not used. With this type of joint it is important to be sure the cutter and fence are properly adjusted. For the joint to be strong you must make use of the full depth of cut since this is what adds stability to the joint.
