  2. Because Photobucket has chosen to in effect "take down" everyone's photos (unless you pay them), we have extended post edit time in the Luthier's Corner to UNLIMITED.  If you used photobucket and happen to still have your images of builds, you can go back and fix as many of your posts as far back as you wish.

  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!
