Wood shaper is used for straight and
irregular shaping, matched shaping, tonguing and grooving, fluting and
decorative molding. It is simple to operate and does superior work
quickly and accurately. High speed is an important factor in assuring
clean cutting performance on any shaper.
shaper cuts stock to a particular pattern
or profile by employing a rapidly rotating multibladed cutter mounted to
a vertical spindle. The spindle is designed so it can be raised or
lowered in fractional increments to meet the work at a precise point; in
addition, spacers can be used to position the cutter at different
heights on the spindle.
The edge of the work is guided along an
adjustable fence .As the stock passes the spinning blades, it's shaped
to match the cutter's profile. Hundreds of profile designs could be
shaped using shaper machine to fashion anything .
