Hey everyone,

I just obtained a dewalt 1 hp shaper from a friends family member who was tossing it out. I am in the process of getting it up and running, but am perplexed at the lack of availability of cutter heads at the hardware store. As in I haven’t found anything. Harbor Freight has shapers but no heads… I asked the customer rep. and he was confused by that as well. The closest thing I can find is a link online to Freud’s site, and “antique” ones on ebay. Any suggestions on where to find the best deals on the blades?

Thanks in advance,


-- If my socks didn't have holes in them, how would I get them on?

It looks like you have a 1/2 inch spindle. Grizzly has alot of 1/2 inch shapper cutters and so does eagle america
at reasonable prices and a lot of 3/4 inch cutters come with 1/2 inch bushing so you can use 3/4 inch cutters
on 1/2 inch shapers.

I hope you got the fence with it! I have an old Rockwell and I think the fence unit weights as much as the machine. Without it, I would not go anywhere near it if it was running.

Google “shaper cutters” and you will find a few more in the 1/2” category. 1 hp is probably a bit light for any serious work but if you got it for free, I think you’ll find some use for it that will justify its spot in your shop.

I would just confirm you have a 1/2” spindle, more then likely you do, then purchase a T bashing with ID of 1/2” and OD of 3/4”. You will need two of those for top and bottom. Then just start buying all shaped cutters with 3/4” bore. Grizzly sells a lot of them and MLCS woodworking online has a large selection of 3/4” cutters. MLCS online can also sell you the T brushing you need. Plus they have great prices for food quality and free shipping. I use all my cutters a lot and have not had any problems with any of them.

Also, and not sure if this comment applies to your set up, but I would not even want to consider using our shapes without a powerfeeder, which makes the cuts more consistent and a lot safer.
