I need a cutter or cutter head to mill the hand holds in hive bodies and supers. Does anyone know of a manufacture or supplier of this tooling?

Craftsman (Sears) used to make one called a molding cutter that was used on a table saw. Not sure if they still produce the unit itself, but you can find them occasionally on Ebay. Heres what I use:

Click on the links and also do a search-someone here posted a video of it in use.

You could always just nail strips on the side to use as handholds though, but for me, I like the look of mine.

If they increased energy bill for your home by a factor of 4.5 would you consider that cruel? If so why are you doing that to your bees?

Did a little research for moulding cutters for table saws.

Ive made some hand holds using a dado blade set to 3/4 inch and made a jig to hold the boxes in place for a plunge cut. I dont know, theres just something that I dont like about using a table saw blade with removable blades at high speeds. My Kutzall grinding wheel is safe and just requires a drill press to work.

Ya I did, it just kicked back and got me.  Not your fault at all, my carelessness.

Sorry about the picture, not sure what I did wrong?

I just set the dado blade wide and made a groove long enough yesterday, that will be fine.

Please do not feel any blame here, I got careless and fortunately it was the wood, not the blade that got me.  That forced me to come up with another way that will work, that is all.  Actually I will use the sled for many different things now, I liked the idea, just not for this

I know this thread is old but someone may benefit from this. If you're trying the sled and table saw method posted above and you don't have a molding cutter blade, how many of us do, try this. I took three of the 1/8th inch chipper blades used in my stack dado set. Lined up the cutting blades. There you go. Home made molding cutter blade. It's not as smooth a cut as the molding cutter but plenty smooth for a hive box. Cuts easily and quickly. Enjoy!

The molding head on the table saw makes the best looking ones. Search for one on e-bay or try one of the woodworking supply shops close by you.
