For safety purposes we strongly recommend an anti-kickback device be installed on the machine before attempting this type of splitting operation. Caution; the cutters will come within .010" of the moulder 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 dimensions. A brief detailed explanation on how to use the calculator is located here.
Width = .625" / Depth of Cut = .260" (top knives).
