Had a quick look and couldn’t find a thread that matches my query exactly.
I am limited in respect of space and money and am in need of a moulding machine. I have seen the various products that will fit the bill and I am aware that I could do most of the work with a router but I am also limited in time – Not much to work with right?
I do have a benchtop thicknesser and was wondering whether this could be SAFELY used as a moulder with custom knives.
The Machine i have is similar to the Jet JWP-12. For those not familiar, here’s the manual http://www.misgroupinc.com/partfiles/M-708521.pdf
Now my immediate thoughts were as long as the knife is centered in the machine and the mount is the full length of the roller and coupled with some sort of sled that can serve the clamp the piece this could be possible. it also goes without saying that anything that requires large volume of material is either cut in multiple passes or removed prior to shaping.
I am fairly fond of my hands, arms and face so if this is a totally stupid idea then please feel free to say so :)
Does anyone have any thoughts?
