Would be great with a better fence.

Review Summary

The shaper itself runs like a champ. The table is smooth and flat. There isn't any vibration. The 3hp motor provides plenty of power. I just can't get excited about the fence. It does have micro adjust screws for the fence. The dust collection is ok. If you don't have the correct sized table insert ring in most of the chips falls down into the machine. The 3" dust port size was kind of odd. An adapter to 4" wasn't that hard to make.
When I lock down the fence both sides of the fence are not in the same plane so the edge of the workpiece catches once it passes the bit. I corrected bu making zero clearance fences that are solid and attach to both fences. I have often thought about changing fences but I haven't heard of other fences that are much better.
