I am a retired manufacturing engineer who took up woodworking as a hobby nearly 50 years ago. This hobby has served me well all those years as a way to relax while making some useful furniture for our home. I don't do commercial work, but will build about anything my friends or church ask.
Approximately three years ago I purchased the G1035 Shaper to use in my workshop. Before that I had a router table. The shaper has proven to be very easy to set up and use.
As you can see in the picture, I have made a larger work surface and dust pickup. The dust pickup is a model G1840 Floor Sweep that I inverted to make a down draft for the refuse and added the removable, yellow hood to help with air flow. I used 3/4" particle board as the base material and to stiffen the table, 1" X 2" braces were added around the opening for the shaper table. The top is covered with Formica« and the edges are 1" X 1/2" oak. The unit comes with spindles for both router bits and shaper cutting tools. I use 1/2" drive router bits for cutting tools.
Please share this information for use with all of your "smaller" shapers in place of router tables. They have the driven spindle, elevating mechanism, and work surface needed for such a device. With the modifications that were made, it does exceptional work.
