This 17/32" Bullnose Moulding measures .531" thickness with a .422" depth of cut on the right vertical profile cutters. This detail is milled on the right spindle so that the moulder's guide fence after the left cutter head will not indent and damage the nosing from the sharp edge of the metal fence. Widths are adjustable to any desired size within the parameters of the moulder used to mill the pattern.
The profile is comprised of a 17/64" radius half round circle with sufficient blend area on each side edge of the pattern. Bullnose profiles are not intended for milling half round profiles due to the extra blend area incorporated in the knife design, this extra blade extension would strike the bed plates of the machinery if milled from the top horizontal spindle. If you're looking to mill a 17/32" half round please search in that category, we have a few options to consider for milling multiple profiles simultaneously. The opposite is true for half round details, they are milled from the top horizontal spindle, the cutters will come within .020" of the moulder bed plates, they do not have any blend area built into the cutter design, so, if you try to mill a bullnose with these types of blades, you will experience parallel knife edge cuts if the moulding moves during the machining process, rendering the product unsellable.
