Now with Freud's unique, patented Premier Adjustable Rail-and-Stile Router Bit system, you can build cabinet doors in a range of door thicknesses – all with perfectly fitting tenons! This easy-to-use solution produces Shaker-style rail-and-stile doors from 5/8" to 1-1/4" thick. You can adjust the groove width to suit different panel thicknesses for rattle-free plywood panels or solid wood raised panels. You can even create extended tenons for extra joint strength on larger doors. All this with Freud's trademark TiCo™ Hi-Density Carbide to maximize bit life and material finish.

  • Standard tenon length is 7/16", and can be adjusted for tenons of any length.
  • Lets you choose from a variety of material thicknesses (5/8" to 1-1/4").
  • Adjustable shims adjust panel groove down to 7/32" (5.5mm) and up to 3/8" (9.5mm) thick – ideal for plywood panels.
  • Unique cutter geometry eliminates tear-out.
  • Patented extended tenon capability: Top portion of cutter, including bearing and spindle, can be removed to produce the front of the long tenon profile.
  • TiCo™ Hi-Density Carbide to maximize bit life and material finish.
  • Perma-SHIELD™ coating reduces heat and pitch buildup and protects from rust.

Super easy & fun to use, only wish I had got the screen/glass bit at same time!
Bits worked supper right out of the box! I'm ordering the screen/ glass bit for the next one.

Woodworking Experience:
Used for raised panel interior door
I used these to cut the rails and stiles for a 5/4" thick pine door. I was able to add the shims to both the rail cutter and the stile cutter to work with the 5/4" (actual 1 1/8 ") boards. Using digital calipers to measure the shim thickness sped up the process of getting the bits set up the same way. This coupled with a separate raised panel cutter bit made for a nice looking door.

Woodworking Experience:
Flexibility was important for me
I needed a pair of bits that had the flexibility to adjust for the thickness of a door panel so they would fit snugly and also accommodate stiles/rails thicker than 3/4" and this set has met my needs. You can easily adjust it in increments of 0.005". My door panels were 0.250" MDF from a cabinet shop, not the typical 7/32" plywood. 7/32" can also be accommodated. High quality finish.

I am planning on making many interior doors for closets and cabinets. I like Freud's quality and the quadra cut.
Gregory Walker R on Mar 1, 2020
I don't understand how you can change the tenon length. It says to remove top portion of cutter, including spindle and bearing. This leaves the angle portion and can cut one side of the tenon. How do you cut the other side of the tenon to make it longer, and maintain the proper length of the rail and it's relationship to the angle on the front?
Dick on Mar 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If I'm understanding your question properly, with the bit fully assembled, you'd lower the bit down so that only the top cutter is in use to cut the flat side. You'll need to ensure the board is held in the same place for both cuts.
The instruction for the 99-762 bit set for reducing the mortise groove to 7/32 is not clear with the bits. I am inexperienced and will be making simple shaker doors. How do I adjust to 7/32 ?
Taylor C on Apr 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's pretty simple actually. It did take me a minute also to figure out only because I was unsure and didn't want to mess any thing up. On the end of the cope bit there is an Allen screw and two small holes, in the bit set you should have a small black cardboard box containing and Allen wrench and another silver spanner wrench. The silver spanner wrench has two tabs that fit into the small holes in end of bit. Hold the bit by placing spanner wrench into holes and use Allen wrench to remove screw. Then top part of bit lifts off and will expose the bearing and shims. Adding or removing shims is what adjusts groove width. On the rail bit there is a threaded portion sticking up thru end and a nut. Removing this nut allows you to acess the bearing and shims on this big. Just keep track of how everything was stacked while removing. You will find the shims between the two slot cutters on the rail bit. You may want to install the rail bit into your router and then use the spindle lock to on router to hold bit while you remove the nut since there is no spanner wrench for that one like there is for the cope bit. Just add or remove the same number of shims for both bits and everything should stay equal. Hope this helped
Hi, I somehow managed to misplace the shims on the tongue cutter. They have a slightly larger bore than the shims on the groove cutter, so I can't use them. Is there any place in the world I can buy some shims or do I have to buy a new set?
Larry on Jan 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I do believe those shims are packaged and sold separately but I'd be willing to bet that if you contacted Freud that they would send you a set. I contacted Freud with a similar problem. I lost the shim set to a Freud dado stack. I contacted Freud customer service and they sent out a set of the shims same day free of charge. The rep I dealt with seemed more than willing to help me out. I would try that route if I were you
Does anyone know the angle of the chambered edge?
David P on Jan 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Thinking 22 deg, but leads me to believe 22 1/2 deg might make more sense
Are the bits pre set for a 1/4 groove?
Barclay T on Sep 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I just completed a cabinet with drawers and 1/4” glass doors using the Freud 99-762 Shaker style and rail bit set. It met all my expectations.
I want to replace my kitchen cabinet doors and drawer facings with ones in the shaker style. For my purposes, what are the differences in the Freud 99-036 adjustible tongue and groove router bits and the Freud 99-762 bits?
Joseph G on Jan 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The 99-036 will give you a good tongue and groove for the door frame, but will leave you with an issue on the Shaker profile at the joint. The 99-762 will solve both issues, and will provide for fine adjustments for any board thickness. This set, after tuning with practice boards, will make a tight joint with the Shaker profile clean and square in the corners.
