I have the Craftsman molding head also. Bought in the early 1970’s when I was restoring an 1880’s house we owned. Used it to create some replacement molding. When I bought the house it had been a rent house for over 50 years so was quite a bit of the molding that was in really bad shape because renters don’t take care of a place like an owner / occupier would.

The Craftsman molding head had three cutters and came with five different sets of cutters. Luckily all the patterns I needed were included. I felt that it was as safe as a dado head. Still have it but 95% of its use was when I was doing the house restoration.

I actually installed on my radial are saw a long time ago. You had to remove the blade guard to use it. It scared the crap out of me when I turned it on. Took it off without ever using it on the RAS. It works great on a table saw though.
