I was looking around at router tables and all the ones that were small enough for my shop were made of cheap particle board. I would also need a less clunky router so I went in a different direction. Instead I bought this delta shaper for $160 which included the original stand. A modern Jet shaper of the same size would cost about 1200 new. I still need to buy some cutters for this machine before I can test it. The motor and other moving parts seem to be functional with minimal surface rust. I will buy a small benchtop router table at some point but this shaper should help a lot in the mean time.

Wonderful shop addition. I have very limited experience with these tools, but they are extremely versatile

That is the same model as my first shaper!

A fellow that worked for me years ago bought it from me and still uses it !

(it was used when i bought it about 1983-84)
