Woodmaster machines are the multi-tool of a woodworking shop. They can be used as a planer, drum sander, molder, or gang rip. That’s A LOT of tools in a tiny footprint.

Experience Precision with the Helical Planer Head

The Woodmaster helical planer head provides an excellent shear cut. Each cut is set at an angle to the material you are planning. This is different from and better than, a spiral head. The helical head has four-sided carbide inserts, so you’ll never sharpen a planer knife again.

When the cutters get dull, rotate them to a new cutting edge. Because they’re carbide, they’ll last a long time. In addition to providing an excellent surface, a spiral cutter, coupled with the ability to slow down the feed rate, helps reduce chipping in figured woods like maple and birch.

Switching Made Easy

Swapping from one function to the next isn’t tricky; you’ll get the hang of it quickly. Check out this article for more info on changing the functionality of the Woodmaster machines.

Unlocking the Power of Gang Rip Function

Imagine having an additional blade or two next to your table saw blade, which can vary the spacing between the blades. You’ll get multiple pieces cut to width as you feed a board through. That’s how the gang rip function works. Multiple blades can be mounted on the tool shaft, their spacing set and the feed rollers push the material through.

Create Custom Molding

How cool to be able to produce your molding. You might do this to get molding in species you can’t buy, for the straightforward enjoyment (and bragging rights) of making the molding for your house, or to monetize by selling molding.
