If you are making that many lineal feet of molding per week, I suggest you either sub contract with a local molding/milling company who can meet your LF per week demand plus the quality and wood type or buy a molder machine. It might be more cost effective for you to sub out the molding because of the time a cost of selecting and handling the wood. You might also consider buying an under pinner nailer by Pistorius along with a double miter saw. These tools are used in the picture framing business and are vital for production. They do have upfront costs but will quickly pay for themselves if you have sufficient sales. A miter trimmer could also be useful.

I would recomend a woodmaster. A 12” molder/planer would be perfect for you. It will allow you to make 500’ a day with time to spare. Most lumber yards will give you a good whole sale price on that large of lumber. Your cost to make it should be about 20 cents a foot. Good luck with it.
