Custom Moulder and Shaper Knives
  Made-to-order HSS knives are the most economical way to match moulding profiles or custom designs that are not available as stock profiles from wood moulding distributors. Typical cost of custom knife pairs is between $95.00 and $150.00 depending on the dimensions of the profile. As a rough guide, custom knives run about $30/inch of profile, with a minimum charge of $95. Our usual lead time for producing custom HSS knives is 2-3 days. You provide us with a drawing, CAD file, fax, scan, or wood sample, and we'll match it exactly.
