That is pretty cool. I thought about making something like that on a smaller scale with an old planer I have.

Thanks, after making the machine we have had request to make more of them for people. You can cut the joints for a complete box in less then 5 minutes.

Very well made no wonder you have requests for some more.

Just out of interest what is it a horizontal shaper? (more pickies maybe?)

Yes it is a horizontal cutter,runs around 4700 Rpm. Cutters are carbided tipped in case you chip one you just turn to next spot like a spiral head on jointer.

The cost is $3500, machine runs on 3hp 220v motor. It will cut all 3 sizes without having to move a fence. The cutters are carbide tipped so no need to have them sharppened. We live in Northern part of Ohio Wakeman. I will ship to just about anywhere besides overseas. If you guys have any more questions feel free to emai me.

Where do you get the horizontal cutters that are carbide tipped like that? Mine are solid and have to be sent out to be sharpened. Is there a lot of dust coming out the front?

I have these custom made for this application. The cost isn’t cheap that’s for sure.

Have your say...
