nope not craftsman this time. My "new" delta shaper

11-13-2016 02:45 AM by emart | 2 comments »

I was looking around at router tables and all the ones that were small enough for my shop were made of cheap particle board. I would also need a less clunky router so I went in a different direction. Instead I bought this delta shaper for $160 which included the original stand. A modern Jet shaper of the same size would cost about 1200 new. I still need to buy some cutters for this machine before I can test it. The motor and other moving parts seem to be functional with minimal surface r...

Your Opinion Wanted

06-21-2014 09:03 AM by Eagle1 | 10 comments »

This weekend I was going through one of my wood books. That’s about all I can do right. In the last year I had 4 surgery’s on my knee. The last one was in February when I had a seizure and actually broke my leg, I never thought that could happen. Anyway back to the book. I saw a ad about the woodmaster planer sander and molder. It was a bit weird it factory is about 45 min from my house. Anyway all comments good or bad would be helpful. Thanks Tim:

Shaper Cutter Setup Instructions #1: Freud Cabinet Shaper UC-900 Stile and Rail Setup Help

03-28-2013 08:16 AM by TedRWorkshop | 4 comments »

The Instructions that come with this set is very generic. I searched you tube to see if I could find a video that shows how to put the stile and rail cutters together. I am like most who learn better watching then trying to decipher written instructions. Unfortunately, Youtube came up empty. Does anyone have any hints, tips or experienced based suggestions that could help me?

Wall Hung Tool Cabinet #18: This Installment is Not About the Tambour...

01-12-2013 06:32 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 18 comments »

Wasn’t long ago that progress got me a tambour and static display of what would someday be… See the lower right corner of the picture above? Well, that’s what needs to be done next, I think. It’s been started… Take close look and you’ll see two pieces joined together. Improperly. The stile needs to be full length, not dead-ended into the rail. And then there are the horizontal (H) pieces, circled and marked as 1 and 2 in the close-up below. Wh...

I have a g-1026 shaper about 2 years old. I am in the middle of running 60 raised panels and half way thru the spindal started moving. I have tightened the spindal lock knob, and the adjustment knob still moves freely. Any ideas? Thanks for your help! Gizmac

As if I have time for another restore project- Craftsman Shaper

05-18-2011 10:09 AM by Tedstor | 7 comments »

I bought this shaper several months ago. As far as I can tell, it was manufactured around 1970. To be honest, I’m not even sure why I even bought it. Totally brainless, impulse buy. I saw it on craigslist in a listing with about 10 other tools. I called the seller to ask about the price. He quoted $80 and included about a dozen cutters. I immediately made arrangements to pick it up. As soon as I hung up the phone, I started asking myself “what the hell do you need with an unde...

Beads Box #10: Get Up on your Feet! Routing Safety and Avoiding Tearout

01-10-2011 01:35 AM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

I was able to get to the garage today as a request for a new shelf for the kitchen was in. While there I saw some cutoff pieces of mahogany that I had piled up from the past 2 projects, and saw 4 legs hidden in those waiting to come out to life. I had wanted to put legs on this box from the get go but wasn’t set on a design that I liked and was mentally blocked with it. I decided to make 3 1.5” x 1.5” x 1” legs and just chamfer the bottoms – just to have so...

Powermatic Model 15 Planer refurb--vintage 1995 #3: ...I should call this Blog fixing up old stuff, but I need help fast.

10-08-2010 02:41 PM by Retseih | 7 comments »

It’s Friday morning 0’Dark thirty…can’t sleep thinking about the days challenges. I’m trudging through the snow out to my workshop waiting for the coffee to brew while I fire up the wood stove…(OK I made up the snow part, but it is supposed to get really cold next Tuesday.) I will get right to the point. I have this Powermatic Planer I picked up from the local High School when it was deemed too dangerous for the kids making clocks to use. No offense t...

Work(shop) in Progress #13: Reorganizing Single Car Garage IV - Getting in Shape(r)

09-07-2010 05:04 PM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

I mean literally – I got the shaper to work :). I guess that would constitute as a tool gloat, although I’m not much of a gloater, I just like getting things done. I got this shaper off of CL a couple of weeks ago just because it was too good of a deal to pass up. I contacted the seller, and told them my budget which was lower than their posted price, and they agreed to my offer – I was psyched! I’ll probably set it up with some 3/4 bore cutters for cope-stile at some ...
