Thread: Cope and Stick joint

    Cope and Stick joint

    Other than depleting my bank account buying a router bit set to make Cope and Stick joints is there another way to make them.

    Are you just after rail and stile contruction or is there a certain look you want? T&G can be done on the tablesaw. Roman ogee pretty much requires a profiled cutter.

    or if you have a slotting bit, you can make the TG joints using that bit.

    if you have a moulding head for your table saw you can buy the cutters for about 18 bucks a set. Check out corob they make them for the delta as well. then all you need to do is set up a jig to run your stock over it.

    I had one of those moulding heads for the TS back in the 70s, it scared the daylights out of me and I got rid of it. But thanks for your reply. Also I was looking for a Cope and Stick design, not a plain slotting bit. I'm resigned to use router bits and miter joints.

    lol yeah the ones from the seventies only used screw pressure, knives would go a flyin' if you didnt have them set properly. the set screw on the new ones passes through the cutter thus fixing it in place. (on a side note, you will also need a dedicated zero clearance insert, the dado insert is too narrow in width and too long in length for the cutter)
    mitered doors are nice but alot more work.
