At Template Services, Inc. custom profile knife grinding is our specialty. Like the rest of
Template Services, Inc., we place emphasis on great pricing, precision, and rock solid deadlines. Our grinding machinery produces excellent reproductions of submitted patterns with tight knife to knife
tolerances and axial constant placement to shorten setup times. Andrew (owner) spent over10 years
running moulders at the mill. Our knife grinding service is designed from a moulder operators
perspective so it fits easily into your shops routine. Once we get your machineries specs and your
preferences in our system, most customers don't even take the time to call us with an order. They just fax, email, or send us an order and a few days later the knives are at their shop.  
                                                              That's it......easy!.

Our knife grinding also offers some unique advantages:

Accu-align : This is a time saving system developed by Template Services to fix the issue of lining
up the knives in your moulder head. By specially machining the outside edges of the steel, it allows for quick alignment when regrinding and running. This indexing point will not change no matter how far down the knives are sharpened. Call us for customized information on how to apply this system to your particular machine.

Micro-edge polish: Our innovative edge polish system is a key part of the incredible finish to be obtained from our moulding knives. It applies a secondary bevel and polish to the tip of the steel, enhancing the cutting tips strength and ability to cut smoothly.

Lets Do an Example for our knife grinding service. We'll use a 2 1/4" custom casing moulding with a 1/2" depth of cut. The knife will measure 3/4" wider than the wood sample to accommodate axial constants/parting legs.

A ). 2 1/4 + 3/4 = 3 inches of knife steel.

B ). 3 inches x 17.00 per inch = 51.00 per knife, 2 knife set = 102.00

B ). Knife set 102.00 + Template 30.00 = 132.00 Total Price

Stock Profile Templates = 25.00(if knives are purchased)
Custom Profile Templates = 30.00(if knives are purchased) , $40.00 if no knives purchased
