I’m not the best person to give advice on swapping a shaper to route table, mostly because i have 3 shapers and one ts mounted router (jessem lift)

Personally I’d never give up a shaper for a router, but I use my shapers every week, and cant remember the last time i used the router table.

I will agree that router bits don’t work well in a shaper and the delta hd fence isn’t great though its actually better than some I’ve used. Our of curiosity do you know of a router fence that offers all the features you are looking for? Most ive seen are about as functional as the delta fence. I just use table saw fence for mine.

I will say that the amana 68mm head and cmt profile knives are cheaper than router bits once you have more than a few.

If it were me i would place the shaper next to the ts and raise one to match the height of the other.
