        Re: WANTED: Richards Engineering Moulding Cutters

        i never use them and doubt i ever will!!   i use my shaper strictly for pattern routing and three or four dedicated cutters from freud(lock mitre for example)
        i'll spread them out and get the numbers of what i have
        i also have 2 heads for the shaper and one for a tablesaw
        multiple heads would be a real asset if you several cutters regularly!
        i have used the tablesaw head in a radialarm saw, scary looking but worked well

          I used the Craftsman cutters for years to great affect. the 7'' in a radial arm saw and the 3.5'' on 3/4'' shapers. I would love to have more small heads so I wouldn't have to change the cutters.

                    I've got a drawer full of cutters and cutter heads which seldom see use, but have saved my bacon of a few jobs over the years in cabinet door repairs in older houses. Back in the day they were the "cat's meow", now just regarded as garage sale junk and available for a few dollars. I guess folks these days would rather spend 70 or 120$ for a custom router bit.

                    Kudos to you for wanting to have a complete set, and presumably using them as well. I shall attest that the RE cutters can still be useful

                    My grandfather made his own profile cutters out of old files for the table saw. I have one that he made that would cut "hospital base with about a 2" curve on them, and cut whole houses of dooor and base with it. When I inherited it, I tried it once, It was totally "whack, whack, whack" and cut a good radius, but I've never used them since.(too dangerous- can you imagine the possible kick-back") He also made his own 6" dado set out of the steel from a horsedrawn shovel, hand cut the teeth, and the chippers were from old files as well.
