The Shaper Origin topic originated in this thread. I was encouraged early on to make it a blog, and now I think it’s time to follow that advice.

I have possession of a Shaper Origin. I didn’t have to spend the $2499, but in return I’m tasked with making it appealing to a wide market.

If you’re not familiar with the Shaper, check out their web site.

This is an open discussion of topics related to the Shaper Origin.

Feel free to chime in.

I did, but I think I’m already doing crazy stuff with my Origin I’ve never seen anybody do. Plunged it into mild steel every Sunday for the past 3 weeks, tool making, and parquetry.

On purpose?
What kind of tooling, rpms and cooling did you use?
