I was going to build a mobile base / workstation for my Unisaw. It wouldn’t be too hard, but I was considering placing my Grizzly shaper at the other end and incorporating them in the same work station. Arbor will lower and fence can be removed. Wondering if this a good idea? Obvious flaws are arbor and fences would have to be moved and if I changed shapers a new one wouldn’t fit. But not planning on changing out shapers any time soon baring some mini explosion from the shaper.

Sounds like a wonderful idea. Then you could move both the Unisaw and Grizzly shaper out of your way at the same time.

I think its a good idea. My only thinking would be from my own shop is make sure it does not hinder your use of the table saw. I have out feed/work bench for mine and it always gets projects going on it and I have to use the saw therefore I have to clean everything off to get to it.
