Hi: You can use a bit with a top bearing, by placing the template above the material to be cut, the template must in all cases be fastened to the material (nails, 2 faced tape etc). You can also use a bit with a bottom bearing, by mounting the material above the template, however if it is an inside cut you will have to drill a hole in the material large enough for the bit. I hope you didn't spend a lot of money on HSS bits
in the set you bought, no one uses them anymore, carbide bits are the way to go.
They last longer and require less sharpening, especially when routing into man made materials, like MDF. Hope this helps Woodnut65
