Picked up a well used Grizzly 3 HP shaper and stripped it down and repainted it. Both the power switch box and the reversing switch box were smashed. Reversing switch wires were jumped and the machine only ran in one direction when I got it. The wires on the motor cover box look like they were switched around. In that box on the motor there are 2 gray wires, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 white, and 1 black. Does any one have an older G1026 that the could take a shot of the wiring configuration on the motor box. It would be nice to have a picture of the reversing switch too. Thanks for any help you could give me.

If you go to the Grizzly website you can put in the model number in a search box ay the top of the page. Then when it pull up the machine you should be able to find a link to get to the manuals, the wiring diagrams will be in there. I had to do this as well when I picked up and old 1023 TS and a 16” dual drum sander.

Most parts are still available for the older machines as well!!

Good luck!!

I tried that. I think the diagram that they show is for the newer shapers. My shaper is from 1990. The wires are different from what I can tell. They just show a black, grey, and red coming out of the motor. Mine has 2 grays, 1 red, 1 yellow, 1 white and 1 black. Someone must have one of these older machines.

Then I would try calling grizzly if they have your manual. Maybe might be able to email you with it, or send you a copy, have had good service from them, sorry do not have shaper.

sorry was typing and the other post came up and was the same as i was going to say.

If grizzly cant find one can you take pics of yours and try to work out wiring to the newer one they have.

Yeah…....I think I’ll try calling Grizzly tomorrow. I have had good luck with my other Grizzly machines and using Grizzly tech support. I’ll let you know how I make out. Thanks

OK….....I figured out the wiring. Hooked everything up and turned shaper on. Ran good forward, but when I put it in reverse it ran with an accompanied hum for a while, then blew the breaker. Motor smelled burned. Ordered a new motor from grizzly. Problem solved!!

Great job. What kind of paint did you use? I’m going to paint my Grizzly jointer some day, it had the same color as yours in the before picture. I’ve been looking for the same color you used, looks like the newer Grizzlies. What about the nameplate/logo, is that new or did the old one clean up?

Looks great

-- If the old masters had power tools, they would have used them. So get off your damn High Horse.

Grizzly sells paint in rattlecans. I used Rustoleum hammered green in the rattlecan. Comes out real nice! The name plate cleaned up with acetone and lots of elbow grease. Thanks

I have the shaper from your before pics, I could use a pic like you were originally asking for of the wiring if you have one. I have grizzly tech support working on a spindle situation I have going on, had to send them some pics to ID the machine. Did current 1026 spindles fit this machine for you? Mine seemed to, but will not seat properly to give tolerable runout. Used a borrowed spindle from an older powermatic 27 and lined up good. We’ll see how it goes (fingers crossed) That restoration looks great by the way. Is that the harborfreight mobile base?
