Comments:
I received this shaper as a gift from a friend of mine. It had been used in a small sawmill. He said it had set unused for quite sometime. Judging by the condition I believe he was right. The motor needed a new starter switch and bearings. The spindle bearings needed replaced also. It came with 16 cutters, which I sent out to be sharpened. Most of this restoration was removing rust, and priming and painting. It was all worth it. Great solid little shaper. I no longer own this machine.
