A precision built machine manufactured from an exacting design utilizing ideas and components to provide the user with a machine to meet the most demanding and varied needs of today's production and vocational woodworking. 

A  carefully engineered feed mechanism offers speeds from 20 to 100 lineal feet per minute with built-in overload protection. A positive gear drive produces uniform power to all rolls. A safety overload clutch is provided on the drive shaft to prevent damage to the drive system. A convenient feed speed ad1ustment and indicator are provided to simplify machine operation This type of drive virtually eliminates feed works related dubbing problems. The feed is also reversible by means of a drum switch, allowing the operator to BACK OUT stock once it has been fed into the machine. 

Direct Motor or Vee-belt Drive
The feed mechanism is driven by a 2 HP totally enclosed fan-cooled motor. This machine is available in either a Direct Motor or Vee-belt drive with 5, 7-1/2, 10, 15, 20and 25 HPTEFC motors.
