Cove Moulding 5-1/4" - 3

Cove Moulding 5-1/4" - 3

This custom symmetrical cove moulding 5-1/4" - 3 measures 5.250" wide by 13/16" thickness enabling you to mill this detail from four quarter lumber, if you feel the center is too thin (1/4") then consider milling at a one inch thickness which will necessitate five quarter lumber. The profile is comprised of a 4-5/8" radius cavetto flanked by a 9/16" tall vertical line on top and a 9/16" wide horizontal line at the bottom of the design.

The spring angles are fixed at forty-five degrees, these specific back bevels set the installed height and projection at a identical dimension of at 3-23/32" tall and wide. Read our commentary about axial constant positioning for crown bevels, the article will help you dial this profile in axially on the first try when milling this detail provided the machine is axially calibrated. Two high points in the pattern were deliberately positioned on the same plane, our specialized design features will assure excellent hold down conditions while milling, providing the moulder pressure shoe is parallel to the machine bed plates.

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 = 5.250" / Depth of Cut = .562" (top knives).

Thickness = .812" / Depth of Cut = .426" (right blades) & .426" (left cutters).
