If anyone has any extra “612” stuff they would like to turn into cash, now is the time guys.

I’m interested in accessory shafts, molding heads large and small, and anything that has to do with the gang rip feature of this tool.

I already have an extra shaft with one 3” molding body and the smaller molding body. I don’t have any knife profiles so I’m looking for good used items there as well.

Thanks in advance,
Dave

where r u located ?
I have one of these machines and have yet to fire it up but it came with a bunch of accessories.
I understand the motor alone is very good in these machines.

Hi Jim,

I’m on the other coast in Maryland. I have yet to fool with mine cept for when I first got it. I plan on using my for everthing but a planer.

Mine has a 5 hp Leeson motor. The entire unit has never been modded. One of the draw backs of this unit is the fact that its mostly sheet metal. Alot of the weight comes from the motor and the cutter head, so there is not a lot of cast iron to absorb the vibration. 2 of the mods I may try are the motor hinge mod and the link belt mod.

So what are your plans for your 612?

I have no use for it…..i tried to sell it once for $100 but the guy couldnt take it. then i found the motor alone was worth keeping the machine so it just sits collecting junk and taking up space.

Jim, I would love to buy your machine from you. Or from anyone else that needs to sell one. I have needed a good molding machine for a year now. I need a machine.e to cut our moldings for the kitchens we build.

I have not decided what to do with it. I was thinking of setting it up just for using as a thickness/surface sander. But its only 12 inches wide.

I have the owners manual and it doesn’t list that as an option. It can be used as a planer, gang rip saw, moulder, and a jointer. The machine has a low and high feed rate that can be changed by moving the chain/belt arrangement around.

With the 700 series tools you have a sperate feed rate motor so variable speed will not burn the wood.

Hmmm strange why they dont offer it. Its a big drum must be 3 inches across and weighs a ton. The guy was even nice enough to enclude 3 rolls of hook and loop paper of different grits. It looked as if it was only stick on paper before the hook and loop.
one problem with the 619 is the molding cutters could fly off the shaft…..I couldnt imagine the noise and terror that must have caused a wood worker.
The shaft that mine has shows proff of just that happening to it. The area that holds the cutter is very thick and is actually bent from throwing the cutter.
Thats the reason I really didnt try to hard to sell it. The guy that was going to buy it at one time was not going to use that function of the machine. I believe they made a big change in the cutter holders on later models so it was no longer a hazzard.

So if you have a sanding drum, what model do you have? I’m a bit confused….. the sanding drum must have been an add on that wasn’t cover in the owners manual. Do you have any of the gang saw parts?

yes I have the gang saw shaft with 2 blades on it, in the machine. The sander drum looks like the planer part except the groves are not cut into it for the blades to fit into. I do believe it is the 612. it uses a pully and belt system on the side to control the speed of the rollers. this machine does not have a speed control for the rollers. I noticed a few molding cutters in the box as well. this thing is to heavy to move with a bad back so I cant really get to it to see the model #. where is it located?

I dont know. I’m on a road trip. Look @ your drum sander, at the ends of the shaft, if it tapered its a 700 series machine if its a straight shaft its a 600 series. If it looks like the photo it is a 600.

From what I can tell the biggest difference between the 700 and 600 series is the 700 has morse taper shafts and dust collection. thisis not my machine but I will be adding the dust hood as this fellow did.

You might find this pic interesting look @ the decal. It mentions sanding b ut not gang ripping. This machine has been handed around between a few companies before it died.
