fizch I don't have a manual nor bits. So I am looking online for bits. Now that I know it is not a router, I am much better. I might have some questions as to changing the direction. Also, adjusting the height.

I am not sure how to adjust the height of the bit. I have attached a couple pics of the router table. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
As others have said, "It's a shaper." You should find a manual online, if you don't have a paper version, and look for the specs on what shaper cutters fit it. Did any cutters come with it?

Its a Shaper, I have one, I bougth it in Sears Craftsman, and use it for moulding, very easy to work with it, and with large pieces, its powerful.

I have bougth several shaper cutters in Sears: https://mx.search.yahoo.com/search?p...n&fr=ush-mailn

Mine can be run 110 or 220 v, I run in 220. And with a switch it can be reversible.

It is 110v.


Thanks for the heads up. I will have to look into using this thing then.

RainMan 2.0 I have this gut feeling why it was given to you . Hope I'm wrong lol

I wonder if that's considered a shaper ?

Update . I just googled shapers and this delta one came up and has what I believe the same threaded shaft that yours has . I think the bits are specific for those machines as I seen them and they had holes in them to slide on the shaft . So I suspect you crank down a bolt to hold them I'm place . I'm a newbie so just guessing . I'm sure the resident experts will pipe up shortly
