This may not be very popular here, but I wouldn't pay extra for a back cutter. If you are using 3/4" stock there are other ways to get the panel even with the rest of the frame. One plane the panel material to 5/8". Use the same panel cutting bit (lowered),or any other bit you like, to remove 1/8" around the back of panel. A little more work but less expense. I much prefer the two piece matched set,if they are used a lot you can tweak either bit to compensate for wear. These are my opinions,and while I haven't cut as many as some, I have cut a great many.

I generally make the cut in one pass,but many people do it in several passes moving the fence a little at a time. Practice on cut offs from your project and use the method that you feel more comfortable with. Enjoy the experience.
