Hello,

I took over cnc duties at my workplace and I can not find where this tool came from. Worse yet I don't even know what it is called. Any help would be appreciated. thanks

Look in a woodworking catalog.

It looks like a router bit for doing raised panels.

Well after searching through 4 years of purchase orders I found out where it came from. We had this tool custom made by a guy that is no longer in state.

Thanks for all those who replied

It's a dovetail cutter.

It is sort of a dovetail but diameter is 3.25 inches and the angle is 80 degrees, I have been unable to locate anything even close to that.

You need to find you one good tool supplier for just such occasions.
If a good supplier doesn't have it...he will find it for you.
The one we use is Bill Williams tool Company in FortWorth.

i just received a quote for having 2 of these made, $600 a piece. Time to find another method for creating bevel. I am going to try and use a t-slot cutter and tilt the cnc router head 20 degrees.

Mount it on an arbour.

It's a raised panel cutter used for biulding raised panel doors.

As I said before it's a woodworking tool.

Could this be a router bit used for making "slat-wall" panels commonly seen behind sales counters? Something like this:

I have seen them offered in different diameters.
