Hey, how much should a Williams and Hussey W7S molder/shaper be worth? I’m guessing it’s 25 yrs old. Is this the model that will do curved moldings, such as an archway molding or oval picture frames? If you are familiar with these, please let me know!

Did you ever establish a value for this?

$500-$1200 depending on region, tooling, motor, and condition.

Thanks, guys, for taking the time to answer. The item is no longer listed in our local classifieds, despite the $2200 price. I’ve always wanted one of these for the simple fact that it could cut curved moldings, like oval picture frames. I recall W&H molders being advertised for $395 brand new, but back in the day I could buy a used car for half that much. Still hopeful that a used one will come along..

WOW! $2200 is a chunk of cash. A new one is only $2800. $1800 if just a straight line molder.
A friend had one about 30 years ago. Neat machine. Well built. He rarely used it, though.
A quick search of YAKAZ results in several Craigslist postings ranging from $500-$1200. Some radial, most straight line.

Did you ever find a W-S moulder/shaper? The amount of tooling that comes with the machine might be why that particular unit was higher. I have about 30 sets of cutters, so have upwards of $3000 invested in my tooling over and above the cost of the machine.

Have your say...
