Received my Frued 99-240 Draw Lock Bit. Been mostly using pocket hole joinery on thedrawers I have been building Going to take this out to my shop and play around with it in the next couple of days( 29 degrees here this morning just a big buddy heater in my shop).

Before I get started anyone suggest a starting point on height of the bit and how much it protrude from my router table fence opening? I will be using plywood all 4 sides 1/2” or some times 3/4”

Any comments on your success or failure using a drawer lock bit?

About 1/2 way thru front as pictured. Trial and error but once you get it figured out, cut your sides a bit wider to you can trim off the blow out or use a backer board.

I don’t use mine anymore with plywood the tear out is an issue I don’t want to deal with.

I’ve found scribing a line cross grain prior to cut will just about eliminate it.

Keep a set up block for reference.

-- Everything is a prototype thats why its one of a kind!!
