MOLD 4 SIDES IN 1 PASS!

Finally, a rugged Made-in-USA 4-Sided molder packed with Woodmaster quality. The Woodmaster 4000 is the high-production way to make flooring, paneling, log-cabin siding, crown, casing, tongue and groove and more. All the capability of machines costing as much as $100,000!

It’s big, it’s bad, it’s made in America. US-Made Big-Frame Leeson motors run bottom, side and top cutters. Three 1.5” machined-steel feed rollers provide solid grip – final rubber roller leaves no-mar finish. Massive throat lets you handle workpieces up to 4” tall and 18” wide without removing side spindles. Synchronized ¾” ACME screws raise and lower 180 lb machined aluminum bed for rock solid work surface. Patent-pending index feature makes blade and work-piece alignment a snap, eliminating the need to run multiple test pieces. 5/16” thick pattern knives are twice as thick as the competition…made to safely handle all-day production in even the hardest woods.  And, even the widest patterns can be machined with a single knife — no need to “piece together” a wide profile as on competitive machines.

If you’ve been looking for industrial toughness and capacity on a small-shop budget, look no further. You’ve arrived.
