That is a very interesting approach. I realized that I have this old Craftsman
(sorry for the spelling) moulding head that holds three blades/knives. It would
work, in theory -- it is would cut deep enough, unlike a standard setup on a
shaper. Maybe I could have knives made for it rather than altering the router
Do I look for "Tool Grinders" in the Yellow Pages? Or, does anyone know of an
on-line or mail order source for such a thing? I have detailed CAD/dxf drawings
No luck in the Yellw Pages but having some luck at Thomas Register. I think.
100% sure if the companies I am finding are right, but I'll check on Monday.
BTW, I also found a company that makes "roughers" and burrs, or some such.
Designed to rough-up surfaces, and they have 60 deg bits, so I could use the
router bit and then the rougher. That is now Plan B.
How would a molding head work for making a v-groove with lines it? If
the groove is just stepped, that would work. But if you want a
v-groove with raised lines (or even cut in lines), a molding head
won't be able to do that since it doesn't move in the same direction
as the material.
Of course, you are correct. But my original idea -- not actually stated here --
to approximate many steps. A rough surface would be good enough for the
and a $14 router bit seemed a good way to go. Anyway, I sort of backed into a
