Chamfer/edge bead bit

Well Does anyone know where to get these bits (see picture)? I have been looking for a while now and can't find em. It looks to me like I need two bits and two passes to recreate this profile and one more to chop out a place for the glass.

woodcraft has a very similar one - it's a champfer on both sides - its a special bit that tommy mcdonald used for a roughcuts project

Can I build that? There's only one way to find out.

thanks for your help. I looked at that website for an hour and didn't see that bit.

This looks like it was ran using an old Sears molding head for a tablesaw. I'll dig out my old set and post a picture of the bit if I'm right.

Check out my Album Sears Molder, looks like this set is bigger 1" wide, for now until I learn how to upload a pic within the Post

Exactly what I thought when looking at the picture. I'm certain (unless scale is off) this that's how it was done. Three different profile then dado for glass.

molding head setup

Hey thanks man,

Few questions though. The different blades are mounted in the three clamps to produce the profile then? So two setups, 2 passes, then do the bit for the glass? They seem to have a radial arm saw bias, is it better for this than a table saw?

It's two or three cutters per profile depending on which set-up you get. The 2/3 blades per profile are all the same and each of the above mentioned profiles is run in it's own pass. As for the front side, three profile actually equals 3 passes or 6 if you're like me and prefer to make a final light pass to reduce tear out.

There is a cutter for the dado (groove) in the back (where the glass goes) as well but it can also be made with dado stack or several passes with a regular blade.

Not all of the sets were sold with the same cutters so don't assume you will have the right ones with the set without checking. I have most of the cutters sears made for it and if you remind me I'll check and tell you the numbers for the individual cutters you need. I may even have duplicates for the ones you need I'd be willing to part with along with an actual cutter head too.

I didn't answer all of your questions...

The table saw is a much safer use for these cutters but you need a dado insert (you can make it) and not all tables saws can run it. I doubt highly if many of the direct drives saws can do to clearance but I've been wrong before.

also, when I say three profile I mean to do the entire front... Ogee at edge and bead in the middle.

Also after writing above I remembered that sears also had a real economy version that only uses one cutter per profile.

What Firemedic said. I'll add they offer different sets to add to your collection. I use mine on the table saw, much safer. jmho

This is handy for me due to matching someones cabinets for repair and/or replacement with the way the carpenter originally did it. Otherwise I seldom use this set which was my fathers.
