How to Price Quote High Speed Steel Moulding Knives
by Russ Rego
Welcome to the Mirror Reflections Inc. custom profile knife calculator. We have created a mathematical equation to
provide fast accurate quotes of what it would cost to manufacture a set of two knives in corrugated 5/16" thick
The calculator is designed for estimating a set of two blades for a single cutter head position, some designs may
require more than one cutter head to mill the profile, you must calculate a new price for each set of knives needed to
mill the detail.
Here is a brief explanation on how to use the calculator.
- Insert a width dimension in the box above if the profile is milled from either the top or bottom horizontal cutter head.
- If moulding is milled from either a left or right vertical cutter head, enter a thickness dimension in the box above.
- Insert the depth of cut for the profile, this is how deep the knife is cutting into the wood, (examples below).
- The plastic template is automatically added to the total cost for a set of two knives. A summary of all our quality steel is located here.
