Make precise molding with new Woodmaster milling machine
Woodmaster, a leader in wood dimensioning machinery, has launched a powerful new machine that hits a pricepoint within reach of serious woodworkers who before now might not have been able to afford this technology. This machine will sell for $3,995. Granted, it's not for a typical home hobbyist woodworker, but it should appeal to someone who needs to make a lot of molding that's perfectly matching.
The new Woodmaster system cuts molding in three spots (on top with the 5-hp motor and cutter capable of 1 1/8-inch-deep cuts, and on each side with 3 1/2-hp Milwaukee routers. So you can make tongue-and-groove molding with a face profile, and cut all three in one pass. The variable-speed rubber conveyor feeds stock through the machine at whatever speed you set, depending on the type of wood and cut you're doing (up to 23 fpm). Maximum width capacity is 12 inches.
"There are other multi-side molding machines out there," says Will Johnson, president of Woodmaster, "but you're going to pay thousands more for a machine which, in most cases, has less capacity. While the 3-Side Molding System is built to be affordable, it's also built to stand up to the demands of hard shop use. Before bringing the system to market we had a professional cabinet-maker run thousands and thousands of linear feet of stock for us. All the components were chosen with long-term durability in mind."
