Sedgwick SM255t reverse tilt spindle moulder. Unlike the majority of manufacturers, the SM255t is designed with a backward tilting spindle. Working from underneath the stock makes for safer working, without restriction on the size of stock being machined, and without obstruction to the pressure guards or power feed. Wood chips are directed into the exhaust outlet in the machine base.

‘True Vertical’ Rise and Fall. The SM255t’s unique ‘true vertical’ rise and fall system allows for vertical adjustment of the spindle independent of the tilting mechanism. The angled tool when adjusted up or down thereby retains its position relative to the fence assembly.
Construction A cast iron table mounted on a heavy duty steel cabinet provides maximum timber support and a stable and accurate base for anchoring the spindle, motor housing, and rise & fall mechanism. All tables feature an anti-friction planed finish. The bearing housing, rise & fall assembly and motor mountings are also in machined cast iron. The spindle is belt driven by an industrial motor and runs in “sealed for life” bearings, which require only minimal maintenance.
Ease of Operation The spindle rise and fall and tilt mechanisms are operated by a crank handle at the front of the machine. Both positions are read from a digital indicator. The SM255t features a cast iron ‘horseshoe’ type assembly with independently adjustable precision-ground fence plates and movement indicators. Changeover between the four spindle speeds is effected by quick and easy belt re-positioning. A viewing panel showing pulley speed is incorporated.
Versatility The machine’s removable spindle allows the operator to select between 30mm and 11/4” dia. spindles, as well as offering the flexibility of optional router or tenoning spindles.
Safety Features The machine is equipped with a cast aluminium cutter guard and a robust shaw guard set with hexagonal mountings and steel ratchet handles. Twin outlets facilitate dust extraction from both the cutter well and fence locations. Additional safety features include: automatic braking; starter with thermal overload no volt release protection and lock-off emergency stop; lockable isolator; electronically interlocked door; a footstop and a socket for a power feed unit.
Optional Accessories Table Extensions To provide increased support for long work-pieces. Manufactured in strong sheet steel, a set of two extends the table length by 1000mm To provide a stable moving platform for tenoning etc. The table is manufactured in cast iron, and runs on precision-ground case-hardened rollers and bearings. A mitre fence with 90-45o adjustment, timber stop and sturdy clamp are all incorporated. Table Size: 740 x30mm Stroke: 900mm Nett Weight: 70kg
Tenoning Hood To provide protective covering and a point of extraction (100mm) for cutters up to 350mm dia. The lid and visor are both adjustable, and feature a carrying handle.
Stub Spindle For use with counterbored cutterheads.
Router Spindle The router spindle is quickly interchanged, without disturbing the main spindle or bearings. Particularly valuable when machining small pieces, the unit comes with a 1/2” collet, nut and spanner.
Ring Fence and Safety Guard For safe machining of curved work-pieces. This fully adjustable heavy-duty guard comes with a 6 1/4” ring, two adjustable visors, a foot which is bolted to the table, a 12” upright, and a 7” cross bar.
