That’s a bit less than half of what they sold for new IIRC… I’d consider it a reasonable deal if I were willing to spend that much for a shaper. I personally have a $150 limit on any major tool purchase though, so…. It wouldn’t be a good deal for me :)

Cheers,
Brad

You would be surprised at what can be found for $150 or less if you are patient enough.

Cheers,
Brad

Model? If it is a beast of a machine then maybe.

It’s a deal if you use it often. Down side to shapers is that the cutters cost more than large router bits.

There are many different models of Delta shapers. You listed the motor specs. I think I may know the shaper you are talking about but Delta made many sizes.

If it is the one I am thinking of then it is high without a powefeeder. Just my gut, without seeing it I would say 500 – 700.
Here is a big shaper from delta

i bought a saw from a guy on Craigslist in pearl river (Slidell) that buys equipment and refurbishes it. He had a couple shapers for sale about 7-8 months ago. May be worth checking into. Good prices from what I remember.

Pearl River and Slidell, Good Lord, them were the days. I ll be back home on Saturday (Gulfport).

I visited a coffin factory in Covington years back. That was an experience.

Many shapers have an available collet that lets you use router bits in them. I do it with my 2 hp (220 v.) Jet often. Works great.
