I bought a device at an auction, it has lain here for a number of years about eight to ten years I think.I first thought it was “or could be converted” to use as a biscuit joiner (plate joiner). Instead of one blade it has if I remember three. Two larger ones about the size of a biscuit joiner blade encompassing a smaller middle blade about a third smaller and .I.E the smaller one is in the middle. I was told later it was an edge cutter or edge something I can post pics tomorrow if anyone has any ideas in the meanttime let me know thanks in advance Alistair

Alistair,

Does it have a maker’s name or patent number on it?

HI guys and gals it seems to cut either an arched groove or a long groove ,but as said the cutters are as follows one cutter centre about one and a half inches or so.this is encapsulated on either side by two other cutters i.e one either side of the main blade about one inch blades so the centre cuts deeper than the other two smaller blades it must be applied and as said the head rotates left and right to make the groove.What’s it for in all honesty what it does I am trying to find out myself what it is for, all I know is it’s called an edge cutter why I don’t know.Alistair

I don’t know Pommy my brother but I was told its for edging .Now whether that’s for cutting a double groove for fitting a special edge banding I don’t know.I was at an auction when I bought it about four years later I saw another couple of them for sale at another auction (in those early days I bought a lot of heavy machinery from auctions to save money) anyway It was advertised also as an edge trimmer or so but nobody could elaborate. It is a professional tool and is well made someone must know thanks so far friends.Alistair

Hey Alistair
It looks like a tool used on solid surfacing counter tops to under cut with or cut inside corners, but they use router bits. Does it have any sort of residue on it?

No I can’t see any residue but what you say could be near to the mark could you explain it again I didn’t quite understand what you mean by undercut?Alistair

Hey Alistair
I think the blades are way to agressive for soilid surface work. It must be for hoging out large amounts of material. It might help if would could see all of the tool.

Theres not much more to see really,it’s like an angle grinder or biscuit joiner with a different head.It’s a swivelling head swivells about3 inches to the left and same to the right and the blades are as said one bigger surrounded by two smaller. The stainless steel tube bit is dust extractor and swivells also if you guys want I can posts some new pics to morrow let me know or I can send by email I took the pictures but photobucket sent them here and somewhere along the line the pics have become shortened.Alistair
