Default Router vs molder question

Hello, I am new to this site and find it very informative. I have a question ?
I need to make 300ft of panel/basecap molding in Sapele. the molding is 3/4 by 1-1/4 . Would I be better to use a router table with the freud bit 99-480 or the Magic molder prmm-2. Thy are the same profile .I have a 3 horse powermatic tablesaw. I do not have a routertable but will be purchasing one very soon. Thanks for any information

Hi r-kid

I would suggest the router table, once you are done with that job you will have a tool you can use for other jobs as well..but do get a 3 1/4 HP router for the table...Triton for 200.oo bucks is a good deal..

Thanks for the reply and the link. What routertable would you recommend ? I like quality and would spend the extra money. This would be for a small custom cabinet shop. I have noticed most tables are mdf and I am not big on that. I also wondered about continuous feeding the stock with a routertale.

" I also wondered about continuous feeding the stock with a routertale " you can buy a device that will move the stock by the bit,, the last time I check on one at Grizzly.com they sold them for 175.00 to 600.oo dollars..

Are you happy with the baby power feeder? Thanks again Ron

Hi,

You can easily create your own featherboards. http://www.routerforums.com/jigs-fix...=featherboards

Hi Ron

I do like the OP type featherboards but I didn't mount the ones I made to a board they are the floating type or to say they can be mounted to the tee track on the front side of the router table or to the fence that comes with the CMT router table table..

I also like the Buddies they are great for the fence hold downs.
