Build: Shaper Table becomes Router Table
I am in the middle of a conversion that is going very well. I am altering a large, old and damaged 3hp Grizzly shaper into a router table. The cabinet, cast iron top, the spindle "elevator" and the fence are being saved. The original motor, motor mount, belt-drive and spindle are being removed. I have taken some photos of this and hope to post them soon.
If there are any specific questions about this process, you can let me know. I will try to answer them in the upcoming posts! The shaper was a 1988 Grizzly, model 1026. The new "spindle" will be a Bosch 1617EVS. Cheers from Brooklyn.
