CSA ANSI C22.2 NO. 19085-6:21


This is the first edition of CSA/ANSI C22.2 No. 19085-6, Woodworking machines — Safety — Part 6: Single spindle vertical moulding machines (“toupies”), which is an adoption, with North American deviations, of the identically titled ISO (International Organization for Standardization) Standard 19085-6 (first edition, 2017-11). It is one in a series of Standards issued by CSA Group under Part II of the Canadian Electrical Code.

This Standard covers the safety requirements and measures for stationary and displaceable hand-fed single spindle vertical moulding machines.

The North American deviations are intended to meet product requirements and to align with the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (Canada) and the National Electrical Code (United States).

This Standard is intended to be used in conjunction with CSA/ANSI C22.2 No. 19085-1:19, Woodworking machines — Safety — Part 1: Common requirements (adopted ISO 19085-1:2017, with North American deviations).

This Standard has been developed in compliance with Standards Council of Canada requirements for National Standards of Canada. It has been published as a National Standard of Canada by CSA Group.

This Standard has been approved by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) as an American National Standard.


This document gives the safety requirements and measures for stationary and displaceable hand-fed single spindle vertical moulding machines, hereinafter referred to as “machines”, designed to cut wood and materials with similar physical characteristics to wood.

NOTE 1 For the definitions of stationary and displaceable machines, see ISO 19085-1:2017, 3.4 and 3.5.

It deals with all significant hazards, hazardous situations and events as listed in Clause 4, relevant to the machines when they are operated, adjusted and maintained as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer including reasonably foreseeable misuse. Also, transport, assembly, dismantling, disabling and scrapping phases are taken into account.

NOTE 2 For relevant but not significant hazards, e.g. sharp edges of the machine frame, see ISO 12100:2010.

It is also applicable to machines fitted with one or more of the following devices/additional working units, whose hazards have been dealt with:
a) device for the arbor to be vertically adjustable relative to the table;
b) device to tilt the arbor;
c) device to fit a manually operated tenoning sliding table;
d) glass bead saw unit;
e) adjustable table insert;
f) device for changing the direction of rotation of the spindle;
g) device for fixing shank mounted tools on the arbor;
h) interchangeable arbor;
i) quick tool/arbor change system;
j) demountable power feed unit;
k) support for the demountable power feed unit with power driven adjustments.

This document does not apply to
1) machines equipped with outboard bearings,
2) machines equipped with powered movements of a front extension table and/or a tenoning sliding table, and
3) machines with an intended maximum tool diameter of less than or equal to 180 mm.

NOTE 3 Hand-held motor-operated electric tools are dealt with in IEC 60745-1 together with IEC 60745-2-17.

NOTE 4 Transportable motor-operated electric tools are dealt with in IEC 61029-1:1990, IEC 61029-2-8:1995/AMD1:1999 and IEC 61029-2-8:1995/AMD2:2001

This document is not applicable to machines intended for use in potentially explosive atmospheres or to machines manufactured prior to the date of its publication.

This Standard applies to single spindle vertical moulding machines that are intended to be installed and used in accordance with the National Electrical Code (NFPA 70) in the United States and the Canadian Electrical Code, Part I (CSA C22.1) in Canada. In Canada, general requirements applicable to these machines are provided in CSA C22.2 No. 0.
