Why did you choose this?
I wanted good quality bits I could use to make full mortised windows?

This cutter will cope the rails if you are making traditional wooden doors, in a profile typically found here in old New England homes. Specifically, it allows you to use a full tenon in the joint which is appropriate- also makes a superior joint due to an increased surface area in the mating surfaces. It's good stuff.

I want to make a wood sash window with the sash having a 3/8 in. through tenon. What bits/tools do I need to make this size?
BEST ANSWER: I can recommend these matched cutters...the 99-050 is a "cope" cutter, so using a coping sled on a router table or spindle shaper there is no limit on overall tenon length, only a limit on big of a bite you may take with each pass. The cope cutter establishes one face of the tenon, the opposing asymmetric cheek (to accommodate the glazing rabbet) is cross-cut on the tablesaw, and the opposing tenon face with a tenoning jig on the tablesaw. If the glazing is to be stained glass/art glass/leaded glass it may be necessary to deepen the glazing rabbet, for single or double strength glass the 99-051 cutter set-up is workable.
Dropped my router, damaged my freud sash bit. Only the 1/2" bit or the top portion was damaged. Is this part available?
