Bruce, While a straight or spiral bit will do a fine job making a rabbet, the advantage of a rabbeting bit is in having a bearing guided cutter designed to clean cut both edges in a single pass. You can purchase a single rabbeting cutter with interchangeable bearings and it will make all your rabbet cuts quickly and cleanly. In a production environment you will often find sets of rabbeting bits of different sizes. The advantage is in not having to spend the time changing the bearings. Time is money, so this is a decision you can make on how much time you wish to save on doing set ups.
