My shaper is much quieter than my routers and is more relaxing to use
on big projects. A shaper will always take considerable setup time:
you don't just throw on a cutter and go. For one board, a router will
be faster; for 5 or a hundred, the shaper is the way to go. I use the
rule of moving the lightest thing, so if I'm rounding over a 20 ft
board I will use the router. Howe
