It came already assambled and ready to go. There was only one minor problem with the mobile system of it. There is a pin that holds the spinning system to lower and raise the shaper, and it broke when trying lowering the mobile system. After hammering the pin out of the hole and inserting a nail for concrete instead, the Great One was ready to start chewing on wood. I thought it was going to make a hell of a noise, but… Surprise!!!, the Great One is at least 60% less noisy than my 1.5 hp Milwaukee router mounted on my cheap router table. I did a couple of cuts with pine and Jatoba using the Powermatic PF-31 Powerfeeder, which made the whole thing magic!. Now I can’t wait to switch the 1 1/4” spindle adapter and start shaping serious jobs. by the way, the cuts where smooth and precise.
Well let’s see how the Great One will perform this week!.
