Thanks for all the input but I think there’s been some miscommunication based on the tools I see above. I’m not a hobbyist. I use an Extrema double sided planer to flatten and plane, an Altendorf sliding table saw to straight line and rip to width, a Whitney 91, 10hp shaper, setup with a sliding table to run my 10” coping heads for 2.5” coped tenons and a Maka four head mortiser for square holes. In case you want to see how to make two perfectly sized and spaced mortises in twenty seconds (that’s me BTW)

None of the machines above would come close to what I need to do with these little muntins and they are serious overkill. In order to resolve blowout (rather than using a coped backer) the cutters MUST run CCW and CW. That’s what a jump coping head does on a high end double-end tenoner.

I need to clamp this 3/4” wide, 7/8” tall and 6” – 24” long piece into a sliding table and move it back into one coping head and forward into one spinning the opposite direction. My latest contract is for 35 8/8 double hung windows and by my calculations I will have over 1000 copes to make on the muntins alone.

If I needed any pre-made machine it might be the one below but it’s still overkill.

I’d be open to places I could get some spindles I could mount in/on the MLCS sliding table, that would handle a light weight moulding head.

Thanks again and Cheers!
