Shaper vs router
I met a guy that's willing to sell me his Jet JWS Wood Shaper for 200$. It comes with all the spindles 1/2,3/8 and 1/4. He says it's not the newer one but works great
Thing is I have been looking for a router but truth is , I've never even held one. Here's what I am thinking , instead if buying a 200 dollar router , a 130 dollar table, I'd just go for the shaper.I googled what a shaper was and best I can see is that it's a large stationary router.
I'm pretty sure you guys are going to tell me jumping strait to a shaper is a bad move as I'm just getting serious about woodworking.
When it comes to my hobbies I do tend to dive in head first with out checking to see if there's water in the pool.
Let me know your opinions
