I have some carbide knives for my Pinhero. They work great until you need to sharpen them. My regular guy has to send them out to be sharpened.

I saw that photo on Facebook. Think it was Michael Weinig AG or Otto Martin machinery.  

Is this one you are looking at buying to run your walnut through?

That Martin probably costs more than my house!

The tilting arbor adds a whole new dimension to the machine.  I've ran my buddies older Martin and it was a pleasure.  I've also ran a newer Felder that is close to that Martin, again a pleasure.

I think their are a bunch of good shapers being made today.  SCM, Felder, Martin, Griggio (who also makes some Martin machines) and others.  I'm sure tule peak knows them better than me.

Lots of great used machines on the market.  Watch for bad bearings as they are precision and super expensive.  They can be upgraded with Aigner fences and accessories to rival the newest.

I run a old SCMI with a huge top and 9 horsepower underneath.  Other than not having a tilting arbor I love it.

Beenthere and Larry. The photo was from the company site. Iíll be sticking with my Woodmaster 4000 four sided moulder/ planer.  Iím not that big time 😂.  They really look impressive. When I was talking with Berry at Woodmaster that designed the 4000 he said a few guys that have gotten the 4000 also had Martin ones.

If anybody is thinking of getting a Woodmaster 4000 better get on the list. They are about eight months out when I talked to them the other day

I saw an older SCMI with a universal 5th head go for small money right before the pandemic, don't know what used is available now. I believe a person could modify the mounts on that rear head.

Have a friend running one of the top of the line Weinigs where the moulder computer communicates with the grinder computer. This is all done to speed up setup time. Of course they are running over 20K LF per shift and have to maintain a 0.008" tolerance on finished product.
They have that show in Atlanta every fall, Aug. I think, that will showcase a lot of these top of the line machines. I have been to it in the past but most of the equipment is way out of my wheel house.

Dust extraction works fantastic with two 5 hp blowers with shutoffs on two of the side cutters when not in use

I've seen the Martin, but it is WAY out of my paygrade. I have an army of big SCM shapers that tilt, tenon, mould, and are much easier on the pocketbook. Very happy with them. I did not go 4 sided or a moulder because I don't have the power available. Used old shapers like Olivers are also excellent machines-bring a forklift  LOL
