Ever wonder why certain species of lumber have tear out problems during the milling process? Find out more on how to reduce and eliminate tear issues by changing the cutter head hook angle on the knives. Purchasing 12/20 duel angle cutter heads will save a substantial amount of money when investing in this style of moulder tooling.
Caution; the cutters will come within .020" of the machine's bed plates when milling this detail. We recommend a wooden, phenolic or plastic sacrificial bed plate be used for these types of milling operations. For knife quoting purposes use the calculator below, we have added only the important measurements, just determine the cutters you need. A brief detailed explanation on how to use the calculator is located here. Need some assistance with the dimensions? Print a copy of our fraction - decimal - millimeter chart, place it on the moulder to help operators save time and increase accuracy during machine setup.
Width = 5.000" / Depth of Cut = .625" (top knives) & .062" (bottom cutters).
