Just my penneth worth but having an 1 1/4 spindle is my preference because I can fit either 1 1/4 tooling or with a spacer/shim also use 30mm tooling

Re: Wadkin EP 1" spindle needed

Question . Ive only played with small spindle moulders before . 1" spindle and 50 x 100mm blocks .
Is the 1-1/4 spindle beneficial over a smaller dia spindle ?
Are wider (125 rather than 100 ) dia blocks beneficial ?

Re: Making tongued and grooved joints

You will need to remove the guards and riving knife to do grooves so will be removing all the safety features in place so you dont cut your hands off .
You will need to do that on any saw regardless of price .
