If you can get a router collet for your shaper you can use it
more or less like a router table. Shapers run at slower speeds
so they aren’t adapted to smaller router cutters, but they
slaughter routers in terms of power and reduced sanding
of profiles. Proper shaper tooling will cost you more, but
the wide range of rub collars and spacers make the machine
versatile too. In the end a shaper can do things a router
table cannot but the wide range of inexpensive cutters available
for routers makes them attractive too.
