Im looking for a larger coping sled. I have the DELTA 43-188 Sliding Shaper Jig, just wondering if there is a jig like this but bigger and heavier. Just got a new shaper and looking for a up grade to make things go easier. Heavier the better.

Right off hand, I don’t remember seeing anything on the market like that. Evidently, judging from the lack of responses, no one else has. I would consider making one. I built a really heavy duty one yearas ago from a piece od 1/2” aluminum, angle iron, and large toggle clamps. It is not hard to do if you have a good drill press.
If you are intersted, I could get a picture of it for you. I built another one using air cylinders for clamping and even to feed rails for doors

This brings up a good point though. I found a long time ago, in my commercial shop, how important metal working is. You can’t always find (or afford) things you need. I don’t have a great deal of metal working equipment, but can get by doing some things myself, and working with a machine shop to do things I can’t.

Elmer. I bought it from a scrap metal place here in town. It was just about the right size for what I needed.
A machine shop might be a goo0d place to look also. They would normally have scrap pieces—maybe reasonable
