Hello, I am new to the forum and looking for information. I did some electronic work for a cabinet shop and they gave me an older Rockwell shaper. Everything works, but I need some heads. It has a one inch spindle wich seems uncommon one the few sites I have looked.
I was looking at the Profile Pro™ Multi-Shaper Starter Sets on http://www.toolstoday.com/p-5502-profile-pro-multi-shaper-starter-sets.aspx
has anyone used these? this is a hobby for me, not production. Thanks.

You can buy heads with a larger diameter and put reducing insert bushings in them. Very easy to do. I believe Powermatic shapers used a lot of 1” spindles.

Have your say...
