These 45.5 Degree - 2 back bevel cutters are designed to mill a forty-five and on half degree chamfer one the backside of a crown, cove, or bed moulding when milled sprung (laying horizontally flat). These profile knives create only half the determining factor of the final height and projection of these types of mouldings when installed. The other half of the equation on these types of profiles will be a degree that combined equals ninety or slightly more, depending on the manufacturer's tolerances.
On this cutter layout the maximum depth of cut is .801", the maximum height of cut is fixed at .787". Every sprung moulding we design have height of cut numbers near the degree bevel on the layout papers we provide, that number must be smaller than the height number, in this equation .801" for this knife to be able to cut the entire back bevel while milling, if not, please select a larger size height of the same degree. We purposely layout all our sprung mouldings with forty-five-degree back bevels and under to be milled on the right vertical spindle, and all forty-five-degree back bevels and higher to be milled on the left vertical spindle. This custom design practice will save thousands of dollars in manufacturing cost over the years, as well as setup time.
