In Detail

Trade Classification & 3 Year Guarantee

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 rated

I 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.
firstly initial set up. squaring the fences up to the bed and inline with each other vertically and straight is a nightmare its taken me months to get the right as to adjust the fence plate you have to take the fence off take the backing plate off turn a grub screw then put back together check and repeat. also theres no spindle lock you have to use two spanners which I've gotten used to but a spindle lock would be nice.

secondly the tilting head sounds wonderful, it isn't. the locking mechanism isn't very convincing and its quite easy to move it a bit out of square by accident. there is no sort of positive lock at 90 degrees you have to square it up off the bed and check it my gauge is also about 1 degree out so don't trust that.

the finger fence sounds great too and it is handy however there are three small grub screw to lock the fingers the grub screws that aren touching the fence because they're filling the gap will vibrate out. I have taken all the grub screws out bar the ones on the end permanently on the fence.

The spindle rise and fall has seized up a couple of times and it is a pain to un-seize.

however the biggest problem I've had happened today the drive belt decided it wanted to fall of whilst I was rebating and then the pulley on the spindle dropped off because there is no manual break on the spindle if this happens so it just kept spinning until that unit came off, when I opened it up the motor was still locked in place so how it happened I don't know.

Don't get me wrong the machine its self is a good machine but it shouldn't be trade rated its defiantly more of a serious hobby machine. as soon as I can afford to I'm upgrading to the industrial version because I can't keep putting up with the problems. I wish I had gone for that one in the first place now. I would sooner drop the tilting head and have a better quality fence.

Looks Good and Sturdy

I purchased this machine some four months ago including all the attachments. It's heavy looks great as do all the extras I have not yet used it just sit and look at it, It was purchased because the price was excellent I will when used give another review. Thank you Axminster.

Excellent 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 Moulder

I 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.
The fence has been obviously improved to an integral fence as standard now and is definite better regarding safety.
The only thing which can be criticised would be the wrenches for tightening the spindle. For the big 36mm there was only a mild steel Chinese version provided which I have already replaced with a German Quality Steel wrench.
Overall the machine performs great and has with its 215kg weight and 2.8 kw motor the right balance do to good cabinetry work for any kind of application.
