Everyone knows that the best way to prevent chatter marks in a profile is to have a pressure shoe contoured to match the profile......

So why don't more people do it??

The answer is obvious, cost or time involved. There are various ways to achieve an exact reverse profile:

One method is to make a reverse template, grind reverse knives, then setup the moulder and run a few feet of reverse profile...very time consuming! You could buy the custom made shoe or use a standard flat hold down and risk having a rub mark on the moulding.

Now there is no reason for not having a counter profile pressure shoe.

Not only does the AutoTemp Template Making System make perfect templates, now it makes perfect pressure shoes. What is even better is that it works from exactly the same drawing you used for the template. Just finish cutting the template, slide the clamping system out of the way and insert the block, insert the correct cutter in the router and enter the 3 or 4 parameters for cutting the shoe and walk away. While you are grinding the knives, the machine is making your perfect pressure shoe. By the time the knives are ready, the pressure shoe will be ready too, matching the template, knives, and original wood sample perfectly.

Now you can watch a video clip of the AutoShoe in action!

The video shows the AutoShoe operating on the AO810 machine. The system is also available for the AO812 machine.

Watch the How-To-Video:
