Today I found a very lightly used 1 hp jet shaper in good condition for a good price. My plan will be to run our cope cutter on the shaper. A couple of days ago I actually bought 2 PM 3hp shapers to go with our 3 hp grizzly shaper and PM power feeder. I planned to run the stick, door lip and panel cutters on the 3 larger shapers and set up my router table as a dedicated set up for the coping cutter. So my random CL scans I found the Jet shaper. Turned out I even knew the seller. So I bought the shaper.
To further sweeten the deal, the shaper comes with 5 cutters, also light usage.
I am certain this shaper will perform the cope cut nicely. Likely better than the 2.25 hp Freud router I was planning to use. My only concern will be how we’ll the shaper will maintain the hieght setting. It will be something I will monitor closely. Thanks for any input.
