Default Woodstar BS52

Having looked at this it seems to be the quickest way into having something that will meet the needs I have and will enable me to build myself a table should I get really hooked.

Anyone know this piece of kit and have any comments on it?

Had I time (and space) available I'd opt for building straight away but I need to get the boat built soonest.

Good option or no?

Do you need a shaper, or just a router table?
A router table can be used as a shaper, for less money. Especially if you build your own.

Never, under any circumstances, combine a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

The specs look more like a router table than a shaper. No load speed 10-25,000. 1500W motor, neighbor hood of 2hp, I think. Depends on what they did with the fence.
No prices posted so ya need to wait till next week to get the real question answered.

The problem with experience is I usually get it immediately after I need it.

It seems a quick way to get the stuff I need done and will meet my immediate needs.

I'll look to building a table (probably after boat is complete) so is an intermediate step at the moment.

HTH,

Vic
