Lacasse: Production Shop
Thought you might be interested to know the kind of machinery we have at our disposal to make up wood mouldings, railings and stairs to meet your renovation needs. All of our machinery is relatively new. This gives us the ability to make great product at a great price, with high precision and a quality finish.
We have just purchased a computer controlled router as well to give us new manufacturing capabilities. This machine is the Cadillac of moulders for making architectural trim…, to produce wood mouldings for the home renovation and construction market. It cuts, straightens and moulds all 4 edges in one pass. Stay tuned to see what we can do with it… we need to figure out how to use it first :)….. but have been producing fluted newel posts and custom size hardwood floor vents so far.
New Weinig Profile Moulder
Profile Knife Grinder
You can design any moulding profile, pick your wood of choice, and we will make the knife and run the trim to match your needs – typical knife costs are $200-$400, thus viable for relatively small runs, if you need that specific moulding to finish your renovation project.. or to match an existing trim
- Create a computer drawing of your pattern
- Use that to create a plastic template
- Cut 2-4 pieces of tool steel for each pattern
- Mount template into the grinding machine shown on the left, and mount the tool steel into the moulding head and then it grinds the pattern in the same way that a ordinary key-cutter works.
- Labour: Takes about 3 hours, depending on size
Wide Multi-Belt Sander
This is our wide belt sander for the final finish on panels and hardwood steps up to 42″ wide. It leaves the wood perfectly flat and nicely sanded so you have little work in finishing your steps when they arrive on your doorstep!
We also use it for fine sanding of craft wood down to 1/4″ in thickness, and even thinner if jigged up appropriately.
For really particular clients we have even sanded their door jambs and V-joint panels to create an architectural finish.
It’s probably the oldest machine that we have in our production shop, but it still works like a charm for a full eight hour shift.
Air Assisted Clamping Facilities:
This machinery is used to produce clamp laminated panels for stair treads, mantels tops and furniture panels etc.
