Knife geometry is a very complicated thing. In the old days, complicated formulas
for hook, blade, back clearance, side clearance and knife extension angles made
the task of making and regrinding knives very difficult and required years of practice.Weinig changed all that. Now you have a template that matches the profile, and the
does all the rest. Put the knives in the head, follow the template,
and all the rest is done for you.

168 to the user-customized Rondamat 960 to the automatic Rondamat 980
, both profile and straight knives can be ground quickly and accurately for precise
profile repeatability. And with very little training or experience.
