  1. I got one of these w/a garage-sale radial arm saw years ago- I've seen pics of them chucked into a drill press, but mine has no shank: looks like it's meant to go on a shaper. Am I missing something?

    I've only seen them in a drill press or overhead router. It's usually used for thicknessing so I doubt it would work well with a shaper.
  3. Right- I just mean there's no shank. I have no shaper & don't want one. And thickness planing is exactly what I will do w/this thing, if I can mount it right. I imagine whatever belongs in the opening/arbor/hole has to fit precisely or throw the balance off(when spinning), so I don't want to just put a long bolt through it.
  4. Stewart Macdonald's web site has information on it.
  5. Sweet- thanks!
