Wondering if you could only have either a miter lock bit or a drawer lock bit, which would it be and why.

Have almost convinced myself I want a miter lock bit but then I remembered the drawer lock bit. Mostly want one for making drawers.

Just has to do with what your going to make. You don’t have to have either one if you have a table saw.

For drawers I use a tongue and groove bit set. I put the tongue on the inside face of the front and back and the groove on the inside face of the sides. With my set of matched bits once I dial in the bit settings I can change to the other bit without changing the router’s depth setting.

I suppose I could use rabbits for the drawers.

I’ve used a drawer lock bit. It’s a pain to set up, but once done the joints are nice.
