“If you have a Woodmaster and a table saw, YOU CAN MAKE A GOOD LIVING MAKING MOLDING!”

"Our two families are making a good living," says James Tolley of South Dakota. "My partner and I own 5 Woodmaster Molder/Planers. One's set up for planing, one for curved molding, and the others for straight molding. We do a lot of custom woodworking and millwork manufacturing."

“My partner and I do a lot of custom woodworking and millwork manufacturing. I checked out all the different planer makes and manufacturers and I liked the way I was treated at Woodmaster. I liked that they are made in the U.S.A.” — James Tolley

2 partners raising 2 families with 5 Woodmasters

“If you have just a Woodmaster and a table saw, you can make a living making molding. We’ve got 5 Woodmaster Planers and use them for everything. My partner and I bought the first one as our business went more to molding, then we bought more and more over the years.

Our Woodmasters are our lifeblood. We run all of them between 20 and 40 hours a week. You can put our custom moldings up against moldings that come off a big machine any day. We’re making a good living for two families.

The accuracy is very good. I can swap single knives in 5 minutes. Double knives take 8 or 9 minutes and a 3-knife set takes 10 or 15 minutes: you’re not losing any time.

“They don’t break. Our 718 paid for itself in 3 months. We’ve run over a million lineal feet through it and we’ve replaced just 4 bearings, 4 springs, and 2 washers. That’s it — they don’t break. If you have just the Woodmaster and a table saw, you could make a living making molding. Our two families are making a good living.”

1 day — 2,500 board feet of hickory

Our Woodmasters get their toughest workout when we do large crown moldings, 5-1/2 to 7-1/2”. We do a 6” crown mold that is 1-1/2” thick. We take off a lot of material. In a day and a half, we surfaced 2,500 board feet of hickory with the 718.

Business expansion: Top-speed molding with no tear-out “Since getting our Woodmaster, we’ve expanded into custom moldings, flooring, wainscoting, mantles, and other projects too numerous to mention. I have the best machine going. Your service is prompt, courteous, and knowledgeable. I recently ran 1,000 feet of oak hand rail. What a surprise to be able to mill it at 100% speed without a single instance of tear-out even though some of the grain was very “wild.” We are so impressed that we’ll be converting all our knives to this head. The time we saved on the first job paid for the head and the final product exceeds our rigid quality control every time.”

Louder than words

What would I tell someone who is thinking about buying a Woodmaster? Nothing — the product speaks louder than anything I could ever say.  I’d just show them our shop, our 140 different molding patterns, and our finished molding.

“I never  had a bad experience with Woodmaster”

It’s a pleasure to do business with Woodmaster. I’ve never had a bad experience with the company. They don’t hold us up or bog us down. Their customer service is 100%. Their people are knowledgeable, they’re curteous, and if you have a problem they always have a solution.Woodmaster’s probably one of the best companies we work with as far as customer service and product.”
