I seldom go to the trouble of making comments, but I just finished using this set of bits for the first time and absolutely loved them. This was the first time I had made raised panel doors via a router so I was apprehensive. It was so easy, I'm kicking myself for not trying it earlier.
The only criticism that I have is that the FREE video I didn't order (it was nice for MLCS to include it) didn't exactly match the bit set. It showed how to switch the direction of the cutters depending on if you are making the rail or the style. I didn't have to take that step because this set includes both bits so you don't have to switch them out.
Also, the calculator they included FREE (again I didn't know they were going to give it to me because I didn't order it) is PC only, no Macs. Not a big deal. I stuck the CD in my wife's computer instead and easily calculated all the sizes of the styles, rails, and panels I needed to cut. It saved a lot of time for me to do the math on my own.
BTW: The set up block was also included free of charge. It was quite handy as well.
Anyway, I love the bits. They were easy to set up and make really smooth cuts.

I recently used these bit set for the first time on a wall-mounted fly tying cabinet. I was surprised how fast and clean the cuts are, and they match perfectly.
Hope to get other bits along the time. Very recommendable product!

I only got the bits two days ago and up to now I've only used the rail and style bits but I can tell you already these are wonderful. These are a replacement for a combination bit where you have to swap around the cutter pieces to make the different cuts. I will never do that again, too much set up and trial cuts. These bits were slick to set up with the optional profile guide and they fit together so nice. There is nothing else out there of this quality for this price. They are a bargain.

I've had this set for 2 years completed about a dozen doors on different projects using MDF, Oak, Pine and Maple. The only only change I would make would be to included the panel bit with the larger Diameter as they have in the set with the undercutter. However this has to do with what I'd like to see rather then quality so still 5 stars.
Suggestions: use a zero clearance infeed fence to help get a smooth cut with minimal tear out. Additionally purchase or make a sled to cut the ends of the styles my first attempt without a sled proved dangerous and looked bad.
