A matched pair of two flute cutters to produce panelled doors with the traditional style cove and bead profile. The sets are available to produce either a 4mm or 6.5mm tongue. They are sold in sets (2 cutters) with the 4mm groove available in either 3/8" or 1/2" shank and the 6.3mm groove in 1/2" shank only. The sets comprise a profile cutter, a scribe cutter and two bearings. The 4mm groove set is intended for use on 22mm nominal thickness timber, although this may be varied between 16 and 25mm, but with 16mm only a bead will be produced (i.e. no cove). For the 6.5mm set the nominal thickness is 26mm and the range is 20 to 28mm.
USE OF CUTTERS
The profile cutter is used to mould the profile on to the rails and stiles, and at the same time cut a groove to accommodate the panelling which may be ply, solid fielded timber, close boarding etc. The scribe cutter moulds the ends of the rails to produce a mating profile to the stiles. This method of construction produces a strong joint with a long glue line and allows doors to be produced very quickly and with good repetitive accuracy. The cutters are suitable for machines with a power input of at least 750 watts.
These cutters are best used in conjunction with a router table, however they may be used freehand with the help of jigs. The application sheet supplied with the cutters details jigs and other set-up information to enable the rapid production of accurate joints. The application sheet is also available separately on request.
IMPORTANT: These are large cutters and you should ensure that they are suitable for use in your routing machine.X
