I have the 25” Wood Mater. I can run a few different profiles at the same time, which cut down on labor. I can be converted to due three sides in one pass. Add a sanding mop to it and it will sand the molding as it comes out of the machine. When I looked at the W&H system, it did not impress me as much. If you are going to start a bussiness from this, you will need a machine that can handle larger peices and/or a few at the same time. Time will be money and the quicker you can make them the more you make. Look for one with varible speeds for the cutter and feed rate. Look at the profiles that you can get for it. Do you have a large jointer and planer to handle long stock?
