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.
