6-Knife No. 2 S, 6s x 3 Disc with No. 4686 T Cutters forJointing 4 Stock. 26 AND PROFILER HEADS Before passing on, your attention is directed totiie small hand gauge shown in the engraving onpage 20. It represents a most simple and effectivemethod of setting the grooving cutters. Thegauge is held in the hand, and the holder and cut-ter placed in it. When the correct position of theknife is ascertained, the gauge is set accordinglyby means of an adjusting screw which is posi-tioned by a check nut. This same setting is usedon the remaining cutters and their holders, whichinsures them all being the same. The great ad-vantage of this arrangement is that the groovingcutters can be set independently of the jointers.This eliminates any lost time in resetting thegroovers in the head following the jointing opera-tion. The holders are so machined, that once thecutter is set in position it cannot be easily dis-turbed. Facility ofSetting upGrooveHead

All cutters in our tongue heads are set in positionon an angle cutting on a shear thereby reducingthe strain and enhancing the quality of finish. 25 WOODS SIDE HEADS A PositiveClamp onall Cutters the locking screw is tightened and the head isall ready for work. This one feature means thesaving of a large percentage of time in jointing,setting and grinding. Our method of holding the jointing knives inthe six-bit groove head is worthy of note. It isaccomplished by means of a taper tool-steel pin,the flat side of which comes against the smoothface of the cutter. In driving this pin intothe position, the milled teeth on the back ofthe cutter automatically assume their re-spective positions in relation to the grooves inthe bit seat. It is impossible for the cutter tomove, once it has been set. The same rigid holdis obtained through this scheme as is accom-plished by our clamp block arrangement. It willbe observed from the under view of the groovinghe
