Purchased the item and put it to use after it was delivered to my doorstep. Item came with a small cardboard "box" that had various sized bearings with instructions on what size bearing will give you what size rabbet. I found this bit did everything I wanted it to do and would recommend it to anybody needing a god rabbeting bit
Was trying to use a 1/2" straight bit on some Baltic Birch plywood boxes. The results were just not acceptable. Bought the Freud bit with bearings and I'm very impressed with how tight the rabbets fit together.
Of the possible 7 bearings that can be used with the cutter Freud chose to send me six. It did say six but instead of sending me the 5/8 bearing that makes the 3/8 inch cut they sent me the 1 1/8 bearing which turns it into a trimmer. Why send a trimmer setting in a set to do rabitting? Made no sense to me but I then had to buy the 5/8 inch bearing so I could do the 3/8 inch cut. It did cut well and smoothly.
