Drill press rosette cutter w/classical string blade set
The LMI rosette channel cutter (based on the John Greven rosette cutter) is intended for drill press use. It is designed for fast, accurate cutting of the inlay relief for any size or configuration of classical or steel string rosette. Once this tool is set up, the cutting only takes a few seconds. This is how the factories and high production shops turn this slow and tedious task into a "no-brainer".
The body of the tool is a ½" thick 6 5/8" wide aluminum flywheel-type disc with a ½" center-mounted steel dowel pin for mounting in the drill press chuck. There is a ¼" steel dowel pin on the downside that centers through the soundhole center in the top into a ¼" hole in your drill press base (this hole is best reinforced with the ¼" drill bushing that we provide). Even though this tool is machined and balanced for smooth operation, this lower guide pin really stabilizes the whole operation. The tool is designed to use ¼" x ¼" high-speed steel cutters to cut the various channels. Two opposing ¼" slots in the disc with adjustable Allen screws inside and outside will hold any combination of cutters and spacers. Rosette channels from 3 3/8" ID to 6" OD can be cut with this tool.
