Expert Review

While this shaper is right on the edge of qualifying for this list, it does come with a more powerful motor than any of the others. At 2 HP, you can count on this one for a wide variety of cuts. It uses either 1/2-inch or 3/4-inch spindles, both of which are included, and has a spindle travel of three inches. The table is 24 inches wide by 21 inches deep, but they also make a table extension for it, which will make it 23 inches by 40 inches, much closer to the size of larger, more costly shapers. The fence control is rack and pinion for precise positioning and to help ensure that it doesn't move on its own. There are also hold downs for the material attached to the fence. A heavy-duty miter gauges comes with it.Rating: 5/5
