A great trade machine offering a good range of standard facilities. Being constructed of 4mm sheet steel with a substantial cast iron table gives great stability and vibration dampening properties. A 2.8kW 1ph mechanically braked motor offers ample power, whilst the choice of four speeds between 1,800 and 9,000rpm allows for a wide range of tooling to be used. A handy digital read-out of the spindle speed is provided. The spindle has a tilt facility ranging from +5 ° to - 45° giving great functionality combined with safe working. The spindle hood is of cast alloy and is fitted with long, fully adjustable fences, work hold downs and a 100mm dust outlet. A further 100mm dust outlet is fitted to the chassis, used with a suitable chip extractor efficient waste removal is easily achieved. A simple sliding table with a mitre fence and work clamp is standard, which can be fitted with an optional square frame table for the added support of panels etc. Another useful option is a tenoning plate which raises the work above the table allowing you to machine the bottom and top of the work together. It also allows cutter diameters up to 200mm above the table for long tenons. The Co-Matic AF32 (340195) power feed can be fitted using the threaded mounting holes on the table. Mobility of the machine can be provided by fitting the 250kg wheeled base, a godsend in a small workshop. N.B. 16A fused supply is required.

Shouldn't be trade ratedI purchased this machine a few months ago I put a lot of thought and research into it and decided this would be perfect, it's not.

WS1000TAExcellent machine for the money , I've owned mine for just over 2 yrs , it's really solid and heavy construction inspires confidence when your using it unlike other machines in this bracket that use light weight materials to cut costs ,The only real adjustment I had to do was to lower the height of the sliding carriage a little otherwise it was pretty much ready to go out of the crate . I did order the panel attachment for the sliding carriage but this takes up quite a bit of room and I found that I didn't really use it so just use the carriage in its standard form . The electric brake works really well but does struggle to stop the large steel headed panel raising head , but once you know how long it takes its not an issue . All in all a great machine and I'd recommend anyone check one out .

WS1000TA Spindle MoulderI am working with this Moulder now for about 3 weeks and have made already different applications with the 45 degree tilting spindle which is in my opinion the biggest asset on the machine. The motor starts smooth and runs perfect as well and copes with all my heavy cutter heads. I was surprised of the time the spindle comes to a standstill when you hit the OFF switch. Within 2-4 seconds and it has stopped completely from spinning even with the heavy and 200mm diameter cutter head no problem. Sliding table runs smooth on plastic rollers and making tenon cuts is no longer a flimsy risky task as it was on my old semi pro Moulder. The spindle height has a travel of 100mm and is easy going up or down which is indicated on a gauge at the side of the moulder.
