Having a decent router table built into the extension of my tablesaw, I
didn't see much need for a shaper--but I couldn't pass up the one I ran
across at a garage sales yesterday. It's an old-style, heavy, cast-iron
Rockwell/Delta beast and came with eighteen cutters, a mess of spacers,
and some little sanding drums. (Do all shapers come with microadjustable
split fences for jointing?)
It was marked with a $60 price tag, but without my having to say a word,
the seller said he'd part with it for only $40. Yeehah!
