Cutting a molding
Install a molding head on your saw, then secure the workpiece by clamping one featherboard to the outfeed side of the fence and another to the table, braced with a support board. Adjust the molding head for a ^-inch-deep cut, making certain the blade guard is positioned just above the workpiece. Feed the stock into the cutters with your right hand (right)-, use your left hand to press the workpiece against the fence. Finish the pass with a push stick. Make as many passes as necessary, advancing the molding head no more than % inch into the workpiece at a time. Once you have cut the desired profile, make a final, very shallow pass, feeding slowly and evenly to produce a smooth finish.
