For years in the solid wood processing industry, wise advice has been repeated for generations: "The best moulder in the world can't fix bad tooling".
That old adage is still true today. Even a moulder with the precise tolerances of Weinig machines can't match an old profile if the knives are wrong. That's why the Rondamat Series has grown to be the most popular profile knife grinders in the world, by a large margin.
Knife geometry is a very complicated thing. In the old days, complicated formulas for hook, blade, back clearance, side clearance and knife extension angles made the task of making and regrinding knives very difficult and required years of practice.
Weinig changed all that. Now you have a template that matches the profile, and the Rondamat does all the rest. Put the knives in the head, follow the template, and all the rest is done for you.
Rondamat Series grinders come in a variety of models. From the simple Rondamat 168 to the user-customized Rondamat 960 to the automatic Rondamat 980, both profile and straight knives can be ground quickly and accurately for precise profile repeatability. And with very little training or experience.
Any type of knife material can be handled in your own shop with a Rondamat. High speed steel, stellite, carbide and many other materials are no problem. Even face grinding of solid heads and re-grinding of fingerjoint cutters. There is a Rondamat made for what you need.
