18" Model 718

For the past 37 years, the Woodmaster Model 718 has been more than our best-selling model — it’s been the best-selling planer/molder in the world! The reason? Owners tell us it’s the perfect mid-sized machine; a great combination of size and power at an affordable price. Over 18 big inches gives you plenty of width to run cabinet doors and panels. Plus you'll save big by buying rough-cut wood and doing your own planing.

Planer Specifications


We asked Robert Goldie, of Lisbon NY,


“The 718 is the best molder I’ve ever seen.”
“My Woodmaster 718 is the best molder I’ve ever seen — twice as good as any other. I had a Taiwanese planer/molder and the first thing it did was kick back at me and cut my hand. After it broke 7 gears in less than a month I got rid of it and bought a Woodmaster. I make a lot of molding with my Woodmaster and the moldings I make are perfect. The machine has paid for itself.
“Takes everything I put in it.”
The Woodmaster will take anything you put in it. Some of the lumber I buy isn’t perfect. One end will be 1-1/4” and the other might be 1-1/2” so you really need to get it all down to the same
size. The Woodmaster will really take everything down. The Taiwanese machine can’t do that. For anybody considering a molder, Woodmaster
should be their first choice. It’s a superb machine.”
