Clouseau Go to the site and search on Powermatic shapers. They are kind of touchie about talking about imported tools, but I know they routinely adapt Grizzly parts for Delta shapers and table saws. (The Grizzly 12/14 is the old Delta.) There are also several PM fans and excellent machinists on that site.

Hamlin You could order the part(s), if they work, great, if not. Grizzly does have an excellent return policy. I'm not sure if you could talk with a service tech or not, they are the ones who do the rebuilds, and such, they'd know more than the support tech's. You could try to speak with one. Otherwise, I'd say, wait a few days to see if others reply with a better answer.

Hope this helps.

JMK Ken I have 2 routers and a good selection of bits. I was in the process of deciding on what I was going to build for a better router table when I ran accross this shaper. I want to be able to use my existing bits until I can afford new shaper cutters.

Hamlin Perhaps I'm looking at this the wrong way but, wouldn't it be more prudent to just purchase a router instead? With a shaper, there is no bit speed control. Some bits need to be operated at a higher speed than what a shaper can give.

Grizzly Shaper

Does anyone out there have a Grizzly G0510Z and would be willing to measure the Dia. of the spindle housing (item #262 in parts breakdown). I have an old Powermatic #23 and would like to be able to use router bits. Changing the spindle assy. to the new Grizzly looks like and easy way to go but Grizzly Tec. Support only know what is on paper they can't see or measure anything.
