I had to make windows for a friend who owns a historical house. I was having a hard time finding a bit that would allow me to make the windows exactly like the original ones. My wife got on the web and found your company. The information and pictures showing the products you sell made it easy for me to find the right bit for the job. I was very impressed with your delivery time as well, I received the bit in 2 days. I completed the windows and they look awesome. Best regards.

Making it Perfect
I'm a "weekend" wood worker. I purchased this router bit to build faux window frames for an upcoming wedding. Technically, the bit produces terrific results. Also technically, the bit needs to come with brief written instructions showing the placement/installation of the bit components for the various cuts. This includes the washers used to set the appropriate components. This info accompanied with simple diagrams showing which bit orientations and router feed directions to create a simple window frame would eliminate the need to research other information to determine this info.

Would I recommend this bit? Absolutely. Would added instructions make bit usage easier and less time consuming? Without a doubt!

I recently purchased this product to...
I recently purchased this product to make some wood frame windows for my brother's cabin. If you have used cope and stick joinery for making cabinet doors especially with the reversible type router bits, you won't have any trouble using this Sash and Door bit. It took some experimentation, but I was able to route accurate joints from scrap lumber and then use them as guide blocks for the set up when I was ready to route the window frames. I achieved nice, clean profiles by taking several, shallow passes on the Douglas Fir that I am using for this project. The joints fit tight and I reinforced the frames by cutting mortises for loose tenon joinery. One note of caution, however - I was surprised to find out that after routing the rails and stiles and doing a dry assembly, the overall frame width had shrunk by 1/2 inch. Fortunately, I discovered this on my practice frame and resolved the issue by cutting my horizontal rails and extra 1/2 inch long before routing the next set... Overall, a very good product. I would have rated it excellent had there been an instruction manual...

I need to replace a window in my attic that I finished off the space & want to have a casement style window for a fire exit.

I own an 1864 Victorian home and the windows need to be replaced. It is extremely expensive to order all of them from either a window company or a big box store when I can make them for less than 1/4 of the price. I can take my time, ensure their excellence and have much better windows. (it doesn't hurt that I also do stained glass.)

Needed to repair a window and looks to be a match. Will find out if it does match once I receive the bit.

I'm making window sash replacements to restore an 1870's home and this bit should closely match the original windows. I also chose this bit for the quality and durability that I've enjoyed in the other Rockler router bits that I've used in the past.

One piece bit, good use video. Quality name I trust

I found this to be the only available, single part, router bit with the characteristics that I was looking for.

Do they make a matching coping profile bit for doing the cope on a full tenon joint (traditional door construction)? Not dowels or floating tenon.

I need to make replacement windows with dual pane glass, the sash is 1 3/8 thick, the glass assembly is 1/2 inch thick. will this bit cut a channel wide enough to accept that glass?
John W on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. It will only do a stub joint with a rabbet on the back side. What I did was make a molding to hold my glad in on the back side. You could do the same for your window. To Me that is the only option with this cutter because its not machine to work any other way. I've made 6 French doors with it and 12 sidelights so I am very familiar with the bit. Good luck with your routing!!
I am new to woodworking, so I appreciate any help offered. Does this bit come with detailed, step by step instructions?
Robert C. S on Nov 27, 2018
BEST ANSWER: There’s a video that I watched over and over. And then I practiced a bunch before making my windows. It’s a great bit! It’s a standard for me now
What is the minimum stock thickness for this bit set?
Charlie A on Oct 28, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I have used 11/16" but that is as small as I feel comfortable with
Does the flat part where the bearing is end up 3/8 wide?
Larry S on Jan 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: if I understand your question--the flat part (glass channel) on my set-up is1/4" wide and 1/2" high---the height can be varied but it changes the amount on the profile according to the adjustment made
What are the other measurements for this bit? Distance between the two cutting edges when bearing is in place 1/4" (what is the gap measurement of the resulting cut)? What is the ogee cutter's dimension along line B in the dimensions given? Is there a separate ogee bit available in matching profile similar to Freud 99-050 to allow coping if mortise and tenon joints are included in the sash design? This question is about the Rockler Reversible Sash & Door Assembly Router Bit - 1-3/8" Dia x 1-3/4" H x 1/2" Shank, Item # 22605. Thanks!
