I new you would
The over size slot cutter is used for two jobs,,,1st. to put in the slot and then to remove the back side of the "mut/mullions" parts...for a full glass or 4 or more glass parts.
Here's how it work:
Mill the cope and pattern cuts first, then use the slot cutter to cut the groove for the rubber panel retainer.
The edge of the pattern cut will ride on the bearing of the slot cutter bit.
When you cut the slot in the rails you can cut the slot the full length of the stock.
When you cut the slot in the stiles you need to set up reference points to stop and start the cuts so they are hidden from view on the top and bottom of the doors..
Do get one of the video just for kicks it's only 10.oo bucks and you see what I mean...
I will say the Freud bit set would be great for a one part glass door But many doors that have glass in them have more than one paine in them.(4 parts the norm or more),("mut/mullions type,stain glass type for just one of them) ( that's why I recommend the CMT
( sommerfeldtools set) it will do both types with one set for 130.00 bucks unlike the Freud for 140.oo bucks...
