I've used Powermatic equipment for 40 years and they work great. I can't say the same about Grizzly. Everyone talks highly about Grizzly so when I was needing a second shaper I bought a G1026. I found the quality of the shaper to be lower than Harbor Freight standards. The machine is dangerous to run with anything other than three wing cutters. Then to deliver the power from the 3 hp motor they have it set up on a single 3/8" belt. This will be my last Grizzly machine. I'm going to replace it with a real shaper and sell this one.
