I purchased this machine answering an add in the classified section. When I called the owner he said it was a 5hp single phase machine?, and that he had severial other machines for sell. So I and one of the young men that work in my shop headed (way) out into the woods. Finally finding the shop, we descovered the shaper was in fact a 2hp 115/230 single phase and the other machines costing to much or too run down. I paid $400 for the shaper, it did run after all, and headed home. The next morning I contacted powermatic and purchased a new quill (w/sealed bearings), pully, v belt and 3/4" spendle for $207. I've spent 3 days disassembling, striping, priming, painting this beast. The parts arrived the day after the last coat of paint and an hour later we fired it up!
