Looking for a 'proper' ovolo spindle moulder profile

Postby thatsnotafestool » Wed Oct 03, 2018 8:52 am

and I don't mean a roundover bead !

Why do companies such as Whitehill claim that their cutters are ovolo's and then give you a choice of radii ? :x You don;t have a radius with a proper ovolo !

Drawing a blank so far.

Whitehill do some traditional ovolo's such as 10x7, 12x9 etc . We tend to use 10x5 which when you add a 2mm quirk gives you 12x7 as in my opinion loks better and you can just about get an 19mm glazing bar with a 5mm web which we had made by Leitz tooling and they also made the scribe cutters for our Sedgwick tenoner .

I think Whitehill may do a few more in their latest catalogue for 2019............

Thanks for the suggestion. Do you have a URL you can give me as I can't find them on their website.

EDIT:Found 'em, thanks.

Is there a matching scribe ?

Yyes they do the scribes but they tend to fit certain blocks and block rotation can also be a factor..So as an example the scribe below which fits the ovolo below has the letter "G" on the cutter which depicts which cutter blocks it will fit and also the rotation of the block.. Its easier to understand when you have the catalogue in front of you. Whitehill are pretty helpful too so may be best to give them a ring... Leitz are very good too and will make any cutter and scribe for you..

Hope this helps..Leveller
