Does anyong have experience ripping with the ripping attachment on their woodmaster. I have this attachment on my woodmaster but honestly I have not used it yet, I have been still ripping on my table saw. I am sure it is easier and better with the woodmaster but I have not attempted it yet.

I cannot imagine how the wood is to stay straight while being pulled through the blade without some sort of fence to ride along. So I am getting ready to give it a try soon. I see how it might be beneficial when I am gang ripping material for face frames and also for ripping style materials for my doors and such. Also gang ripping boards for my panel glue ups would be beneficial.

Just wondering if anyone has any advice with regards to using the woodmaster planer as a rip saw?

I was hoping someone would reply to this. I have never gang ripped either. It looks pretty straight forward. Over at woodweb, a guy built an adjustable fence and uses to powerfeeders to convert the saw into a straightline saw. His 725 has been dedicated to just sawing. I think he may have even hopped the feed up to something like 40 ft/min. You may want to check it out.

Not to change the topic, but we’ve chatted in the past about woodmasters. How has yours been? I’ve used mine mostly for making trim. So far everything has been great.

Have your say...
