Production machines in action

For those who have never seen a large size shaper cutter in action, take a look at this production line for making a wood bed:


Also notice the exposed cutters and blades .........

The answer to your question will only be as detailed and specific as the question is detailed and specific. Good questions also include a sketch or a photo that illustrates your issue. (:< D)

No candy-ass 1/8 cuts there!

Did the guy use an edge guide for those long rips or freehand it?

Terrifying to watch. I had to stop about 1/3 of the way through.

Just have to watch your fingers


My Davis and Welles shaper had too small of a throat hole so the Freud Woodbox shaper cutters wouldn't fit through it so for a while I was using it with the cutters above the table, but as soon as I saved up enough I had a machine shop mill the hole out so i could use the Delta/Rockwell shaper inserts it the top


I swear the day I ordered the shaper with a 1 1/4 spindle, they started making 3/4 bore cutters, and they are about 1/4 of the price of the 1 1/4 bore, but the big ones have about 3 times the thickness of carbide

That's not the reason I posted it. Those guys seem to have the process down well enough, but I wouldn't even think of doing stuff like that. I guess if your livelihood depends on putting out the work,
the dangers get put aside. Obviously in a foreign country, Asian from the looks of some things, especially the squating working positions.



I have a friend who makes custom doors, frames and arches and who runs a 10 HP dual arbor shaper with up to 8" diameter cutters... exposed. He's been doing it for 30 plus years, so he's very knowledgeable and familiar with how things work. It's nothing I would consider as far as an occupation. In a one man shop all sorts of safety rules can be broken ........

A few of things.

Obviously not an OSHA shop.

No hearing protection.

No evidence of blood on the machines.

No steel toe boots.

One guy spraying didn't even have a mask.

And it firmly reinforced why I don't want a shaper. The four inch in diameter scare the H*** out of me. That one looked like a foot in diameter.

I was just commenting on what they other troops had said


Did you notice most were bare footed? Looks like South East Asia, but they are good at what they do
