Gentlemen, I have an early model G1026 3hp shaper for sale. Im asking 400 dollars for it. It includes a 1/4 hp feeder. The rundown : I bought new in about 86,(dont recall for sure). In 2006 I put a brand new fence and fence housing on it. In 2006 I also put a new 1/4 hp feeder on the machine as well as had the motor (3hp) completely rebuilt. At that time I also replaced the spindle cartridge and bearings.

The deal is, that I have four of these and one sits idle mostly. I am choosing this unit to sell only because the spindle height is a little hard to adjust but does adjust in its full range. I believe 400 bucks is a decent price for this unit. It can be seen and demoed under power if you like. No hidden secrets. Would need to be picked up. I am 15 miles ne of fort worth. pm for more info. (will also inclue several spindles: 1inch,3/4inch and 1/2inch) JB

I am interested. Looks like a 5 hour drive for me though. That would be my biggest hurtle. Can you tell me more. Just wondering, would the 1/4 hp power feeder run stile material. As you know, I just bought 2 PM 3 shapers to go with my 3 hp grizzly. I want 4 shapers to run the stick, cope, panel and door lip, but only have 1 power feeder to share out with 3 different shapers. I did buy a small 1 hp jet to run the cope cutter but the top is extremely small. Plus your power feeder offer is more tempting.

Jerry , you can run sticking on it all day long with the 1/4 hp. I have been raising panels (dedicated) for several yrs. with it. Two passes however. I normally do that anyway, depends on material,etc. There has never been a power problem with the 1/4 hp, just slips a little on occassion due to lack of physical weight. I keep surfaces waxed well anyway. I think I payed about 500 plus for the feeder alone. Yeah, its a no brainer for sure. I have paid for that machine many times over. The only reason I have a couple of 1/4 hp feeders is that I was sorta maxed out on 220vac at the time. I was a little apprehensive until I put em in use. Surprised me ! I could get it to Austin easily, one of my brothers goes 2-3 times a month to roundrock to see grandkids.
