Rail and Stile Set with Adjustable Slot

Rail and Stile Set with Adjustable Slot

 

Have you ever slid a piece of 1/4-in. plywood into a 1/4-in. groove?It ain't pretty. It's a fact of life that plywood is undersized inthickness and this results in ugly gaps in doors with plywood panels.So here's the skinny—skinny bit, that is. With Amana Tools' newIn-Stile and Rail System router bit set for $155, you can match thesize of the groove to the exact size of the plywood. This allows easilycustom fitting the groove to the panel. The set works for undersized1/4-in. and 1/2-in. plywood in rail and stile material from 3/4 in. to1-1/4 in. thick.
Each two-piece matched set works like a stackable dado.
It comes with a variety of shims, spacers and cutters that allow makinggrooves (and the matching tongues) in two size ranges: from 0.197 in.to 0.272 in. (approximately 3/16 in. to 9/32 in.) and 0.433 in. to0.523 in. (approximately 7/16 in. to 17/32 in.). It takes test cuts andtrial and error to get the bit set up right, depending on your panelmaterial's thickness, but instructions from Amana simplify the process.When you've found the perfect setup, using the bits is no differentfrom using any other matched bit set. Sets are available in threeprofiles: ogee, bead and concave (pictured). All have 1/2-in. shanksand produce a 3/8-in.-long tongue. The price of each set is slightlyhigher than prices for matched sets that don't allow customizing thegroove size.
