Met a very helpfull guy. Now I consider a friend. He works for a metal building components company. The fella informed me he used to own his own shop but closed down. He blessed me with a 20” Shapemaster made by Weaver. It is very good condition and appears well cared for, or not heavily used. That jig is 2000.00 new and he sold it to me for 250.00. I could not pick it up myself, my wife met with him. He showed her a toolbox full of shaper cutters, knives,various cutter tooling, shims, bearings, spacers, bushings, etc, well cared for / organized and labeled. I do not recall exactly, but there was freeborn cope/stick cutters (just happened to be different pattern then I have), freeborn doorlip cutter (also new profile for us), freeborn panel cutter, LRH cutter body for panel cutter and cope/stick cutters and also another doorlip profile from LRH. In small zip lock bags he had organized replacement knives for each of the LRH bodies. In all I believe he had around 10 cutter bodies which more then doubled our cutter inventory selection. All in what appears to be like new condition.

So my wife looked it over. She is not ignorant, she knows I paid 700.00 for 2 freeborn cope/stick profiles in the past 6 months, she also knows I paid a little more than 200 for 1 freeborn panel cutter. So she gladly gave my new friend 190.00 for those cutters. What a great wife I have :)

Freeborn bead cope/stick, looks to have the most use, probably the favorite profile.

Freeborn doorlip. Like new condition. Not sure how we will be able to use this since the back cut is too deep. We use euro hinge so not sure how I will be able to incorporate this profile, will have learning curve on this cutter.

LRH cutter body, has multiple knives for replacement.

LRH cutter body cope/stick bead profile, came with multiple replacement knives.

Not sure what these profiles are for. Looks like edge profile cove? One is Freeborn, other is LRH again came with multiple replacement knives.
