Unusual Birdsmouth cutters added to Wealden's range




These cutters may be used to make multi-sided objects, such as boxes, barrels etc.

The two flute bevel cutter creates a notch or “birdsmouth” on one edge of a piece of timber which mates against the square edge of the next piece of timber, offering a larger gluing surface for maximum strength as well as an interlocking joint to aid assembly. Only one side of the workpiece is machined to form the joint.

There are two cutters, one which can be used to produce 8-sided or 12-sided boxes, depending which way up the timber is machined and another which will produce 6-sided boxes. Both are available to buy online at the Wealden website.

Wealden launch DLC coated Persistence Pro© range of spirals


The brand new Persistence Pro© range of solid tungsten carbide tooling features a high performance DLC (diamond like carbon) coating on precision-ground K10 grade bodies.  The coating of SP2 graphite and SP3 diamond gives a harder surface coat with a lower friction co-efficient, which means a tool life of typically 2-3 times that of untreated solid tungsten carbide.

The 2+2 flute compression spirals have two short up cut an two long down shear cut flutes.  This provides down shear cutting on the top and a short up shear cut on the bottom of the tool for multi-pass cutting without damaging the top surface.  Ideal for edge trimming or nesting on double faced veneered boards, these cutters ensure a good finish on both faces of laminated boards, solid timber boards and MFC.
