Whacha gonna do with it?
" Quote: .... And should I invest in a 3-HP shaper for running additional molding profiles at a higher production speed w/auto-feed options? My feeling is yes......
If you are going to make interior and exterior doors a shaper is the way to go. and those 3hp Grizzly's are the best bang for the buck, I own 2 of them.
If you are going to make cabinets for kitchen in 3/4" stock the router table, 3 1/4 HP, 5 speed PC router and a Jessem MastR lift is the way to go, I have 2 of them. It will of course work with thicker stock and raised panels, but the shaper is best for 1 1/2" stock and up.
If you are a hobby shop, the router table, if a production shop BOTH.
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)
