Category: Spindle Moulders

Spindle Moulders are predominantly used for moulding work – shaping wooden workpieces into more complexly designed components or products. With a solid degree of versatility, spindle moulders can also be used to make holes, grooves and joints as well as performing standard moulding work. With cost-effective, affordable pricing combined with absolute robustness, spindle moulders are a fantastic investment for any woodworkers and craftsmen, especially ones who produce ornate, elaborate products.

Despite them being a necessary addition to a professional workshop, before the 2000s, spindle moulders had a poor reputation when it came to the safety of their operators. Modern spindle moulders however, have seen huge developments in their safety standards and are nowhere near as dangerous to the operator as they once were. Modern spindle moulders typically consist of a revolving spindle capable of turning at various speeds depending on the current project’s requirement.

Types of Spindle Moulders:

With the majority of spindle moulders having a vertical spindle, there are additional types of spindle moulders that may be more suited for different types of craftsmen. Depending on preference and requirements, there are spindle moulders with a horizontal spindle and some with tables that tilt for more freedom when machining.

Some spindle Moulders have more dedicated purposes, for example:

Spindle Moulders for Trimming – these are used to forge a border in the wood, perfect for shutters, frames and doors.

Spindle Moulders for Tenoning – these are used to create seamless joints between the jambs.

Single-head spindle moulders – with one horizontal spindle, these machines can cut a single workpiece at a time. They are, however, more economical and retain the accuracy and precision of a standard spindle moulder.

Multi-head spindle moulders – with the ability to cut more than one piece at a time, Multi-Head spindle moulders are great for productivity and usually provide great accuracy and precision.

Are There Any Safety Precautions When Using a Spindle Moulder?

Unlike edgebanders, tenoning machines and sanding machines, spindle moulders once had a reputation for being dangerous. Although they’re safe to use nowadays, it’s still important to follow general safety precautions and wear protective gear whilst using a spindle moulder. As with all other types of woodworking machinery, it’s important that whoever is operating the machine understands exactly how to do so professionally without taking any risks. In terms of built-in safety features, spindle moulders include a protective guard above the cutter, the guard prevents the operators’ hands or clothing from being drawn into the blades. Besides the built-in safety features, most safety precautions are down to professional operation and the proper use of safety equipment.
