I just purchased one. Does any one have one and use it on their shaper table? The Miter Gauge on my shaper is getting long in the tooth and pain to hold the stock and backer boards on it. I was going to bake a jig but by the time I got the parts and assembled it; It would be cheaper to get this one; #1344 in the catalogue.
Anyone have one of these? How do they work if you got to cut say; 50 styles.

I bought one for my router table and IMO it was a foolish investment as it is not sturdy enough to do it’s intended job. It does not hold things as securely as needed. I took mine apart and rebuilt it with stronger components.

Good to know. What stronger components did you use?
Should have read the reviews. They all said that it flexes too much. MLCS says not to use too much pressure as they have anti slip pads. If the base was made of aluminum it would ruin the blades.
Did you use aluminum for your base? Did you use wood?

Wood. There are other commercial units made with aluminum though.

Have your say...
