This weekend I was going through one of my wood books. That’s about all I can do right. In the last year I had 4 surgery’s on my knee. The last one was in February when I had a seizure and actually broke my leg, I never thought that could happen. Anyway back to the book. I saw a ad about the woodmaster planer sander and molder. It was a bit weird it factory is about 45 min from my house. Anyway all comments good or bad would be helpful.

Thanks Tim:

I had to look it up and read. If it performs as advertised, it would be well worth the money. If you can see it in person, I would.

I concur with Monte. At only 45 minutes away, I’d call ‘em up and ask if they give factory tours.

I’d go for the tour – even if you don’t buy one, it’s always nice to learn more.

We just sold one at the high school. They only used it as a sander.

Take the tour to see if they show you all the set up for it!!...............Jim

I just drove 45 minutes to buy some Baltic Birch. No big deal for me. I say go for it.

Looks like a great machine that would be perfect for a small shop doing production work.

I just bought an 18” Woodmaster Planer off Cl. It is a total beast with 5HP motor! Mine is a planer only but you can add: drum for sanding, moulder knives, and gang rip blades. They have been a great company to deal with as I ordered a manua, blade setting jig,l and new belts when I got it.
There are several U Tube vids of Woodmasters in action.

Oh yea! Any factory tour should be a time well spent. Working at Ford Motor Co for over 30 years, it’s amazing to see different factories of different products. It would be gr8 to see how machinery in the woodworking field/s is made.
