Cater Tool Supplies (CTS) are a distributor of quality woodworking tooling and manufacture spiral cutters for planing machines. The CTS spiral cutterhead is designed with a true shear cut. It requires less horsepower, makes smaller chips and less noise than other type of cutterheads.
Unlike conventional single straight knifes you do not need to replace the knife if it becomes damaged or dull. Instead, if one knife edge is damaged or needs sharpening simply turn it to another edge in seconds. You will only need to replace the inserts when four edges are dull giving you more life than speed steel knives.
Your initial investment is paid back in no time.
Estimated time to replace the cutterheads on any of our heavy-duty or industrial thicknessers with the CTS spiral heads is 3 - 4 hours. This can also be done prior to delivery of your planer if you would like.
