Nice I like it. I have a similar cove cutter from a crown molding kit and it works like a champ. You will need 3hp or better probably for those heads. They are quiet and smooth.

Yes take lite passes a power feed helps, But if you ever seen a saw blade kick multiple it 100 x. Like all power tools safty first fingers and eyes don't grow back.

Sears use to sell one and I see them in garage sales once in a while.  The body is something like 3/4" and the cutters set in and are locked with an alan head screw.

They work just fine, just bring them up thru your wood tablesaw insert and run the wood like you are cutting with a blade.  They don't cut as smooth as a shaper.  I would check e-bay for craftsman moulder or something and I bet you'll find one.  Or just get a used shaper .  I got a Inca shaper for a big pile of cedar I cut.

The moulding head cutter that I have belonged to my grand daddy and was made by Craftsman.  It holds three blades and a large variety of profiles are available from Sears.  It worked well the few times that I used it.  A feather board would help keep the work held tight to the fence.

I have had one of the craftsman units for many years and it works very well. You have to be carefull about kickbacks as the other guys said. I increased the HP from 1 to 2.5 and it made a big improvement in the feed rate.
