"It starts with knowledge..." is more than a motto to us- it's how we do business. Our first goal is to share some of what we have learned about our trade with you.
What's My Project?
There are many ways to craft your solid-wood project safely, and with beautiful form and joinery. A project could be anything you can dream; from a unique piece of art or furniture, to a product line with standardized production, like cabinet doors, furniture, case goods or even flooring. Finding the best way to build a project will always depend on the complexity of your design, as well as the quality and volume you aim to produce.
In the same way, your shop set-up could be as unique as what you're building. It could consist of many hand tools, or a mix of traditional and CNC machinery. One thing stays the same- the joy of woodworking comes in using your tools to bring your design from a drawing to a reality.
Why Insert Cutting Systems?
The engineering of insert knife systems is based on mechanical knife fixing, which means that the knives don't require sharpening, and are replaced once they're dull. Sharpening necessarily involves removing material from the edge, which changes the dimensions of the cut. With inserts, the dimensions of the original design are maintained, for repeatable accuracy over the entire lifespan of the tool. Similarly, the diameter of the tool is also constant, so adjustments for fences (or CNC recalculations) are kept constant. This is why insert knife tooling is often called Constant Diameter Tooling.
Processing Your Project
In this section, we hope to inspire your projects by demonstrating various common milling processes using insert cutting systems. We suggest you starting with a past or future project in mind when going through the various milling processes- Maybe you've already got everything you need for the job in your shop and would just like to confirm your concept; or maybe you're looking to change or improve your present way of working. Thinking about a specific project can help you imagine how small changes could build an entirely new project.
