I procured a Grizzly G1035 Shaper from my friends grandfather as he moved out of his home. Unfortunately, I am completely stumped as how the basic operations and setup of this machine. It came with a manual, but the manual does not seem to be helpful to me.

My big question right now is how do you simply replace the cutters in the machine. I have a finger joint cutter that I want to put in and play with. I have tried to find videos on youtube explaining the basic replacement of cutters, but I have yet to find one. It appears as if most videos, this basic operation is assumed.

Does anyone know of any helpful online resources I can look into to get more familiar with proper setup, specifically replacing cutters?

Try this youtube video.
European and Asian countries refer to a shaper as a Spindle Moulder.

Does it currently have a cutter installed? If it doesn’t does it have the spindle installed?

If there is no cutter or spindle I can see howhat it would be confusing.

If there is a cutter on it already remove the two nuts on the top of the spindle (very top nut is left hand thread) you should have gotten two wrenches.

Different shaper, but same style double nut spindle as on the 1026.

Have your say...
