I have never heard of this shaper. The guy said he thinks it is Australian made. He is basically a wood worker for fun and does not have the floor space. I need to act quick as the shaper is listed for 300.00. Here is the listing:
I am confused some, because I spoke with the guy, who seemed open and honest, and he says the motor tag says it is 16.5 amps. But he says the shaper is wired 110 and it runs beautifully. I asked if he was sure it is 16.5 amps and he said yes, says so right on the motor plate. That seems to indicate the shaper has a 4 hp motor, but why would it run on 110. My PM shapers are 16.5 amps, wired 220.
There is a sliding miter gauge accessory attachment on the shaper, would be nice for doing cope cuts.
Honestly, we do not need another shaper since we have 4 shapers and love our shapers, but the price is right and an extra shaper will not hurt us.
Has anyone heard of or know this shaper?
