The Woodmaster Molder/Planer is a heavy duty, pro-grade 4-in-1 woodworking machine — molder, planer, sander, saw. Many Woodmaster owners are professional woodworkers, cabinetmakers, molding manufacturers and so on. But plenty of do-it-yourself guys choose Woodmasters, too. They tell us that, after all, if they’re going to put the time and effort into home projects, they’d rather to them right with tools they can depend on. Eddy Johnson is one such D-I-Y guy. He tells his story…

“I’m a hobby woodworker. My house is full of stuff I made! I got my Woodmaster Molder/Planer because of the versatility of the different functions and its heavy-duty construction. Price entered into my decision but was not the deciding factor. I was looking for a machine that would do everything I wanted to do as long and hard as I wanted to do it. The Woodmaster does that for me.

“I use my Woodmaster for planing, rip sawing, and sanding.”

I use my Woodmaster to plane rough sawn lumber; I gang saw lumber with the ripsaw head; and I sand occasionally with the drum sander head. I don’t do drum sanding as much as the other functions, but it is nice to have it available. I feel it has paid for itself just by helping me make the stuff in my home.

I know I could make money with it. Right now I am so tied up with work that I don’t have enough time in the day to do it all.  I have the opportunity to have my Woodmaster make money for me now, just not the time to do it in.  If time allowed, I could make money with it on any given day. You can really earn a great living with it making molding. That would be the biggest moneymaker. We have a hardwood company here in town and they have three Woodmasters in. They do make a living with theirs.

I looked at all the big planers that were on the market at the time I bought. Woodmaster was the most heavy-duty, the best value, and the best producer that I could see. The variable speed on the infeed and outfeed is a huge selling feature.  I’m not mass-producing projects; what I’m after is the highest quality available.  I slow it down and just let it creep through and the wood comes out planed beautifully.  I am not trying to plane a certain number of feet a minute to earn big money. I want to get the best finish available for whatever project I am working on.

“Woodmaster told me what I didn’t need.”

Woodmaster Tools is a wonderful company; I have never had a negative experience with them. When I purchased the machine, I spoke with a few people at Woodmaster. I didn’t really know at the time what I would need for the machine, what molding knives or what supplies. The guy I spoke with was real helpful. He gave me some tips about what I may need or didn’t need, what I shouldn’t invest in and what would be money well spent. He told me that if I figured out that I needed anything else, he would sell me what I needed at 15% off for the next year. That was really helpful. I thought everything worked out great.  I don’t know if I would say that I had a friend on the inside, but I at least had someone I could call up and ask questions.  He remembered me every time I called.

The Key Feature: Variable Feed Rate

Woodmaster's Infinitely Variable Feed Rate gives you 10X more cuts-per-inch than ANY other molder or planer - that means super-fine finishes no other planer or molder can match. Simply turn the dial and choose from 70 to over 1,000 CPI or anywhere inbetween. More CPI means a super smooth finish!

If someone asked me about getting a Woodmaster Molder/Planer, I would definitely recommend it.  There is no doubt about that.  The key feature is the variable speed infeed outfeed rollers.  That is a big deal.  Plus Woodmaster is not stingy on the horsepower in the motors. You get a minimum of a 5HP motor. Taiwanese machines just cant stand up to Woodmaster.  The benefits of this machine can be easily shown to anyone.

“I put high value on quality.”

When I bought my Woodmaster, I did a lot of research. It was the best machine at the best price.  I do put a pretty high value on quality.  As long as you have a good value for the money, I have no problem doing business with you. Woodmaster is a great value for the money.”
