Crown Moulding 2-1/2" - 11

Crown Moulding 2-1/2" - 11

This elegantly small crown moulding 2-1/2" - 11 measures 2.500" wide by .687" thickness, requiring four quarter lumber for milling on a industrial molder. The concave profile is composed of a 13/16" cove in the center, bordered by a 7/64" vertical line and a 3/8" quarter round arc on top, joined to a 9/64" wide horizontal line with two cascading one quarter inch round circles in the lower section of the design. The spring angles are fixed at thirty-eight and fifty-two degrees, these specific back bevels set the installed height at 1-55/64" tall with a projection of 1-11/16" 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 detail 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. We suggest using a felt lined pressure shoe while milling this pattern, this will help eliminate any unsightly burnish mark left on the upper bead from the metal hold down shoe on the molder.

For knife quoting purposes click to open the calculator below, we have added only the important measurements, just enter the appropriate dimension in the boxes provided. 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 molder to help operators save time and increase accuracy during machine setup.

Width = 2.500" / Depth of Cut = .319" (top knives.)

Thickness = .687" / Depth of Cut = .487" (right blades) & .557" (left cutters.)
