I recently learned of a product called Magic Moulder that is designed to provide molder capabilities to your very own table saw. It is essentially a disc that is either 3/4 or 1 1/4" thick that bolts on the arbor of your beloved table saw.
It has 2 partial circles in the outer rim that accept molder profile blades with a fool proof locking system to prevent them from flying off when in use. There are 70 some profiles available including all the standard profiles.
I'm getting ready to put crown, new base, and casings in every room of my house and also will make all new kitchen & bath cabinets all of which could use molding. I had previously been thinking that I'd make molding with my 3hp table mounted router, but this Magic Moulder approach may prove easier & safer, and since you can also use the profile tilted (if your machine tilts), it can make profiles that other molders can't.
Has anyone used one of these?
Has anyone ever run down the economics of making your own molding versus buying it?
I realize it's a time saver to buy molding but since I'm retired and enjoy woodworking, time is not the issue for me. :)
PS - BTW, you can find their web site by Googling Magic Moulder and they even have a link to a video that shows it in operation. It looks pretty neat to me.
