Yup. I have several sets, not quite that big though. Laugh



Nice haul John.
See if you can get the vari speed kit for it. Much easier on the knives and wood if you can slow it down. Makes a world of difference.

I'm pretty sure the vari speed kit will fit it, but at around $750 IIRC it's not on my short list.  I do plan to spend the $100 or so to get the multi-pass kit.  That allows you to take less than a full depth cut, and that will give a better finish and put less work on the knives.

Thats good. I was gonna say that a full pass on molding bigger than 2", or very deep molding like staircase bull nosing is hard on the knives.

Great deal. Source a 3 phase motor and use a VFD for speed control.
