Gshepherd, no worries, and keep the questions coming. I probably won’t have all the answers, ‘cuz I’m a rookie on this stuff.

The steel is 1/8” thick O1 tool steel from McMaster-Carr. It matches the thickness of the old cutter exactly. It is not heat-treated yet (you can be sure I’ll document this process here), so it’s easier to work. I’ll rough shape the cutters and notch them, then heat treat them. Unless there’s a reason I shouldn’t do it in that order….

paratrooper34: I’ll probably make some reeding/beading cutters after I’ve made some simple dado cutters first, once I know what I’m doing.
