Delta Router/Shaper

I am thinking of purchasing this machine. Anyone have any experience or comments? Lowes is selling it for $230 with a $30 mail-in rebate. Seems like a good deal.

Woodpecker thus spake:

I considered this myself, but I read many complaints by owners about the height adjustments being clunky and inaccurate, and the motor underpowered. Try eopinions.com or the review sections of amazon.com for more details.

I have one and I like it. I do cope and stick in oak and walnut, raised panels, etc. and don't have any complaints. It's almost a year old works just fine.

I have one of these things and I am sorry I bought it. Shaft is never perpendicular to the table, and the table isn't all that flat, among other things. Do yourself a favor and look under the bottom in the store - you'll see all you need to know. The mechanicals are toylike in quality, and it doesn't even have a TEFC motor. Save your money and either get a decent small shaper (e.g., Grizzly 1.5HP) or buy a decent router and make a table for it.
