Advice & Ideas on Power Feeding

Hey everybody,

Me and a couple others are in the beginning stages of trying to produce nicer hardwood flooring, base boards, & crown molding. Ideally we would want to grow to a more industrial scale, so we are looking into ways to move boards across different parts of the process. Right now we want to stay away from just buying a power feeder. We have seen some DIY builds and are wondering if anyone else has any ideas or builds of their own.

I have built many different machine over the years, mostly back in the day when machinery was hard to come by and very expensive if you could find it, today there is so much on the market that is reliable and at a reasonable price that I feel it is no longer worth it.

I would look for a used model if you don't want to spend the money on a new one, there are listings on Ebay in the $500 range for good units, at that price it is hardly worth building your own. If this is a commercial venture the with the increased efficiency and quality it should not take too many jobs to recoup your investment.
