In our molding plant we made hundreds of rosettes at a time. We liked the Charles Schmidt cutter heads. We tried several different kinds of cutter heads but none of them gave us the life that we wanted. We found that after a hundred or so the knives needed to be sharpened. We found out through the grapevine that a higher water count in the wood was needed but we never confirmed this by experiment. We figured we was better off with the wood we used for our molding because all of our rosettes came out of drop. We ground our own molder knives and the Schmidt heads used the same type of knife. We sharpened the rosette knifes ourselves so we just sharpened them whenever they needed it.
