Local cabinet shop closing and offered me Grizzly 3HP shaper with complete fence and multiple spindles for $400. Can buy cutters at considerable discount too. I have already been looking at new router and lift to upgrade my current router in a TS extension but wonder if, instead this would be a good addition to to my growing tool collection. I just read the previous LJ posts on router vs shapers and appreciate the input. I still have a few questions…
2. Grizzly shows a spiral straight edge cutter head – could this be used as a edge jointer? (I do not currently have a jointer)
3. Can bushings be added to bits for arch profiles on cabinet doors and raised panels?
4. Do they make a spindle sanding sleeve that works reasonably well for a shaper? (I don’t have a spindle sander yet either)
I am sure I will have more questions, but this is a start.
