Recommended stock thickness = 15.88mm to 25.4mm (5/8” to 1”).
The Whiteside lock drawer bit makes both cuts. The cutter should be set to 14.29mm (9/16”) above the router table. A small adjustment in height might be required to ensure a tight fitting joint so first make use of samples for the drawer side and the front until the height adjustment is confirmed. These samples should be kept for future reference. The drawer sides are routed in vertical orientation with the inside face kept tight to the fence and cutter; the drawer front should be routed in horizontal orientation with the inner face kept face down on the router table. Both the sides and the front should be routed without changing the set cutter height; only the fence position may be adjusted, this will allow for a flush finish joint or an ‘overhang’ finish on the drawer front. These bits are designed for use with a table-mounted router only.
