Gerry,
10 yrs. ago I worked in a SHOP THAT HAD THE w&h AND IT WAS A WONDERFUL LITTLE MACHINE.
last year I took on a huge restoration project making double hung windows (more than 40 of them)for a historical restoration. 4 of the windows were arch tops The job took me 8 and a half mos.
I needed to reproduce some trim and casing that was more than 100 yrs. old. I bought the shop fox rip off of the W&H. I also bought the radius jig to run the arched trim.
I couldn’t be happier with this little machine. It runs smooth and suits my one man shop.
I bought crown knives and can now easily run all my crown on this machine as opposed to using one of my shapers. And it is also a lot easier to run this stuff on the moulder.
I’ve recently noticed that they are selling this machine real cheap on ebay stores.
1 more thing, the variable speed contol is a must.
Yes a weinig is a beautiful machine and is certainly the way to go if you are a big shop and run mouldings all day and as your main source of income.
But for the small custom shop, I love my little moulder.
good luck
