the other thing to note about this shaper is the table is a bit small. I used it a lot for raised panel doors, sometime big doors. With longer stock an infeed and outfeed table is a must, even for the stiles.

I found the 1 hp motor didn’t like raising panels in hardwood. It took to many passes for me, thus the 3 hp upgrade.

Today, doing this as a hobby, I wouldn’t buy a shaper (unless I got a deal like yours) but I have it, it works well, so I’ll certainly use it.

I’m working on a panel raiding hand plane. I’ll use that (assuming I make it work well) for a panel or two, but when you’re looking at a dozen raised panels, this little sweetheart shines.
