A milling cutter for a wood operating machine has pairs of foundation plates, (20) each plate having a recess (50) to received a cutting insert. Each pair of foundation plates is planetary gearbox mounted on a guide plate (24), and several such guidebook plates are installed on a common tubular shaft (10). Each base plate includes a toothed rack. The toothed racks of each pair of bottom plates engage a common pinion (84) mounted on the tubular shaft. The radial range of each foundation plate is adjusted by a screw and the racks and pinion ensure that the radial adjustment is usually exactly the same for each person in the same couple of base plates.
