Before we got our first molder we had seven Powermatic shapers. We used them for all sorts of things and quite often. They are a valuable machine and can take a much heavier cut than a router can. They are a dangerous machine if not used with care. However, in some ways they can be safer than a router. I don’t think that a shaper should be one of the first machines a small shop should have, however, but once you get your basic machines then a shaper can be a nice addition. An automatic feeder can also make a very nice addition to a shaper.
