Charles G. G. Schmidt & Co. introduces a new insert-style surfacing head for the flooring industry. The aluminum heads are made with four or six rows of standard, four-sided inserts to do the surfacing and two dovetail slots to accept adjustable cutters for adding the relief cuts on the bottom of the flooring. When used with the company's flip flop design insert style side heads, once the machine is set up, no more adjusting is necessary even after insert changes or rotation, says the company.
