Topic tags/keywords: woodmaster

Ive located a seller with a woodmaster 612 with jointer attachment. Advertise as planner/drum sander/jointer. Only seen in photos and not in person (and it’s a bit of a drive so won’t be casually looking) Photos look like a well maintained older piece of equipment. I posed question to seller whether it can be set up to do gang rip saw. He was unsure. I located a manual online. Flipped through quickly and nothing jumped out at me. Curious whether this is possible on this machine. Like maybe it’s not in the manual because it wasn’t used that way when produced but with after market parts can be set up that way (or maybe it’s in the manual and I need to actually read the whole thing).

I thought the 612 WAS capable of gang rip. Perhaps I am wrong.

And, their tools are built like tanks.

It has a head just like a planer. Instead of putting knives on it to plane, you put multiple blades on it to rip lengths of wood in whatever width you want.

So if you had a lot of parts that were 2” wide, you could set it up to rip 3-4 pieces at a time.

Woodmaster is the only “entry level” gang rip that I know of. Most are very big machines used in big operations.

If I’m not mistaken one can also “gang shape” to make moulding of various contours. I don’t own one so I’ts all hearsay coming from me.
