Grizzly G1026 3 HP Shaper

Perfect balance of performance and price.

None of our competitors even come close to this price point!

The G1026 is a well-built machine that makes building cabinet doors a breeze. Constructed with a precision-ground cast-iron table matched to a 3 HP motor that will prove to be a dynamic teaming.

Each of the three spindles that come with the G1026 is designed to work efficiently with different sized cutters and spacers.

The shaper is supplied with three table inserts which give you four possible opening diameters in the shaper table surface.

The fence utilizes a two-piece adjusting system. Each fence face is independently adjustable to compensate for different cutting thicknesses and special shaping applications.

Like all Grizzly shapers, the G1026 comes with a 1-year warranty covering parts, and assures the unit is free from factory defects. (Consumables are not covered by the warranty.)

The G1026’s manual was written in-house and is packed with useful information.

The technical support team is U.S. based.

Parts and accessories for the shaper are available on-line and shipped from the Grizzly parts warehouse in Springfield, MO.

This is heavy duty. 05/14/2020 1:53:02 PM

At first, when I saw the empty styrofome box, thought that the packers forgot to include all of the external parts. Would be nice if there was a sign or something that said that all components to the system are inside the machine. Otherwise, this is better than I thought it would be. Great value for the price.

Amazing Shaper! 04/20/2020 3:41:32 AM

Excellent tool! This was well packaged and shipped quickly. The instructions are great and this was easy to put together. I've only used it on poplar but it cuts great and there was no tear out. It sits perfectly on the mobile base and has plenty of work space. Amazing value for the quality tool you get. Thank you Grizzly!

I have not had a chance to uncrate it very busy. Hopefully in a couple weeks.

Excellent Product 07/06/2019 1:55:05 PM

Only problem I've had with these products are with the shipper.
Ordered an 8" Jointer and this Shaper and both came with slight dings from forklifts.
No effect on operation, however.

Works like a charm. 04/12/2019 1:06:25 PM

This thing is amazing and makes building cabinet doors a breeze. The large work area and easy set up is great. It does take awhile to set up until you are use to the steps.

It is a well built machine. Have only run one shape with a large cutter on white oak with excellent performance. Setup was straight forward. I did not use the fence supplied but fabricated one of maple and added a t-track to accept a feed roller. I was not fond of the feed hold downs supplied, although they worked fine. I found them hard to set up.

powerful shaper 03/05/2019 9:23:09 PM

I first owned a 1.5 hp shaper, loved it being an upgrade from a router table. Now I own a 1.5 and 3hp shaper. Great machines and even the grizzly mobile bases make them easy to move and secure them to the ground as well. Now I need some power feeds.....

A Tank! 10/24/2018 5:16:56 PM

I bought this Shaper a month ago, and I have not had the time to run a new 220 circuit yet, but it appears to be of good quality and of great financial value compared to other similar shapers that I considered buying.

No Wrenches Available For 1" Spindle 10/08/2018 4:19:12 PM

This is a good shaper for serious hobbyist or light manufacturing. Not much refinement went into the fence, but craftsmen that most of you are, you can shim the fences to be co planer to each other. My biggest peeve is that there are no wrenches that fit the 1" spindle nut (32mm) or the router spindle nut (29MM). I called Grizzly technical to ask for any available wrenches and the representative had none and suggested I use a Crescent wrench. This isn't such a good option as the Crescent wrench will interfere with the fence. I guess it will fall upon me to buy a couple of cheap wrenches and grind them to fit. He also said this was the first complaint of this nature he had encountered, Shame on the complacency of consumers, this is what happens when low expectations are expected.

I have 4 of them in my shop. Excellent value all ways gets the job done. Never had any problems with machines ( no downtime).

Great Value 07/12/2018 10:50:29 PM

Sturdy and flat cast top. High quality surface grind. Motor runs quiet. Throat plates are heavy duty. Fence and guard assembly is a bit clumsy, but solid. Adjustment knobs are heavy duty and solid. The only negative feature is the motor access panel. You have to remove 4 screws to access drawbar. This should be a hinged door. Overall, I'm very satisfied for the price.

I recently received my shaper and I had no problem with the curb side drop at all. I went right to work assembling it and the instructions and pictures made the job very easy. I must say that the protective coating on the table was "fun" to remove. It would have been helpful to know what might have helped before arrival of the tool in the shop, but a little elbow grease and paint thinner got the table shining before long. The tracking information was very helpful since the machine was back ordered for a few weeks. Thanks to for your shipping the additional items of the order in advance that was helpful. And yes I will order from you again.

Great addition to my shop. 06/10/2018 2:20:41 AM

This is actually my second grizzly shaper. Doing custom cabinetry I often times find myself needing 2 shapers to help increase production. I bought the first one about 10 years ago and it is still going strong. I would definitely recommend this tool for anyone needing a quality shaper at a reasonable price.

An awesome product! And a great company 01/17/2018 8:21:16 PM

I bought this upgrading from a router table and I am so glad I did. Runs so smooth and has plenty of power.

Good tool for the money but needs to come with a much better fence. Took a good bit of tuning but eventually took it off and made my own. Also needs to come with a twist lock plug instead of the cheap straight plug. Also, shipping was a partial disaster and almost had to go pick up unit but did not because of already having to pay 140.00 for the shipping. So I had to wait almost an extra week to get it delivered

So glad I bought this 10/24/2017 11:25:21 PM

I have had the G1026 Shaper for about nine months. I've use a router table for years shaping wood with templates. I haven't used the router table since getting this. The power, the steel table, the fine height adjustment make this so much better than using a router table.

Love it. 06/23/2017 5:31:46 PM

I've been playing around with it learning how it handels, and it should make the new kitchen cabinets easy. I didn't realize how much more expensive the bits were than for a normal router, but you get what you pay for. Quality.

Far better than a router table 06/22/2017 8:45:11 PM

I have been looking at router tables for some time. But, decided to take a chance on the shaper because of its power and versatility. The cost of the shaper, mobile base, and C2316 bit were about the same as a high end router table WITHOUT a router. Used it several times and very happy with it. I'm an a long time amature woodworker but I've found good tools help make good results. This is a great product.

Can't beat it for the price 05/19/2017 10:19:04 PM

Very happy with this shaper. I actually do custom woodworking for a living at Lafayette Wood Works.
I've been doing it for 30 years and use tools like this every day. With all the features on this unit,
and for the price, you will not find a better deal.

Happy Customer 02/01/2017 4:28:18 PM

I have a big kitchen remodel in front of me involving over 40 raised panel door and drawers. I have a decent enough router table, but he idea of coaxing all this work out of what amounts to a screaming, dusty toy was discouraging. So, I bit the bullet. Got a screaming deal on this shaper with no shipping and not taxes. I have set it up and have only made a few practice operations. What I see is a much, much quieter and powerful machine with superior dust collection. Very glad I splurged on this purchase and am looking forward to this remodel project instead of dreading it. This is my first Grizzly purchase. Fit, finish, etc. were all better than expected, so much so that I just took delivery on a stationary planer (for the same reason). Very happy with it as well. Both items shipped promptly with no hassles. Very satisfied customer.
