I am getting ready to tool up a shaper for pattern cutting. Edging
chair legs, arched end-table spreaders, etc. I want to get a big
cutter 3 or 4 inch diameter with a rub coller. I like the idea of
using these rabbeting cutters with a single long insert blade. I'll
just leave off the rabbet bottom cutters when doing full depth pattern
cutting. Cheap and easy to replace the blades and a nice cut I
suppose, I never liked the nibble of little carbides.
Does anyone have any experience with any of these. On the Amana's I am
interested in both the shear and cheaper (smaller) cutter.
