Trend spindle moulder knives no longer made?

Post by rich3911 »

I was hoping to get some knives for my Trend 40mm cutter block to do Ovolo beading with. Just had a look at the Trend site and there are hardly any shown.

Is this just a thing with Trend or is sort of tooling falling out of favor?

I assume I can put Whitehill blades in a Trend block?

I know this answer is 7 months late, but so long as the block has 6mm pins spaced at 24mm centres a massive variety of cutters are available from various outlets under "Euro Profile cutters" such as this CMT selection on Scott & Sargeants website:

Not strictly true, but they do make tooling for a few different companies that have their own branding on instead of Whitehill's, namely Axminster, Scott & Sargeant, and Tewkesbury Saw from what I've seen pop up secondhand. I think Trend was having their stuff made somewhere in the orient much like the rest of their line of routers, router cutters, and other rubbish.
