I threw a few questions up on this forum regarding Shaper Cutter Heads and unfortunately received only one answer to my questions. Maybe there are not to many people with Shaper experience. But anyway after talking to some knowledgeable people I ordered the cutters I need for making raised panel doors. I ordered them from Royce//Ayr a company in Ontario Canada. They seem to be very well constructed and all heads will accept insert cutters, I believe there are around five different profiles. I will use this shaper and cutters as much as possible and hopefully later on I will be able to answer questions regarding these tools.

Steve, I have never used a shaper; I do all that type thing with my router.

On another note, your shop is way too clean. Are you sure that you actually make saw dust there? haha

I’ve never had much luck with any accessory that required an allen wrench style clamp…can never get them to not slip.

The Sawmill site seems to have a lot more shaper users with production experience.

Most if not all high end insert shaper tooling (Felder, Amana, Freeborn, freud, infinity and many more use Allen type set ups. I personal have Felder Freeborn and infinity. They all work great. Maybe there something wrong with your Allen wrenches. Are they cheap China made? Are they Harbor Freight?

99% of all insert tooling for machining metal is held with Allen or torx bolts as well.

Thanks for the info about clamping styles…I bought a small vintage Rockwell shaper years ago but have never bothered to buy cutters for it (1/2” spindle) so I don’t know much about them. My experience is largely with counter-sink bits and such…

Some of my spindle tooling, all custom ground high speed steel for a 100mm safety head, very competitive with the larger router bits. The blue cutters are mix and match scribe and counter scribe set for 20mm doors.
