Re: Coves on a table saw ()

While I don’t have that cutter, many years ago, I found that grinding a thumbnail arc on the 3 straight knives of my Sears Craftsman molding head, then tilting the arbor on the table saw creates a more efficient cutting angle that can easily take about half inch of depth per pass, plus it leaves a cleaner surface than any saw tooth, so it saves a lot of time sanding.

Of course, only taking a 1/16 or less for the final pass will give a cleaner surface than the initial heavy cuts.
