What was the router bit Tommy used to cut a second stair stringer by using his first one as a template?

Was it a straight bit with a guide bearing? It was probably a flush trim bit.

I believe it was a 3" pattern/flush cut bit.

Yep, it was a 3" 'patterning bit'. The guide bearing is on the bottom with these; it's on the top for a 'flush-cutting' bit. Both are otherwise the same.
