Default stumped

I was at a local cabinet shop today and noticed that the routers he was using was belt driven, by a 2 horse electric induction motor. tThe device he had the router bits in he called a, mandle. I have searched the internet all day for one and have found nothing.

So my question is what is this thing called and where can I get one???

I think you meant to say mandrel ?
It could have been an inverted pin router. They are usually pretty pricey.

I believe you refer to a shaper.
It's a pricey tool meant for production of hundreds of board feet of stock.
Commonly used to make moulding.
Not something normally found in a hobby work shop.

No. This has a table just like a router. It mounts to a piece of flat metal and has a pulley on one end with a belt on it running to a motor the top of it has a router head were you put the bits

Sounds like a home built router system, would have a motor under the table that turns the router mandrel (like a Collete) via a belt drive system. graincutter

Why don't you just go ask the guy at the cabinet shop where he got his?

Hi fromm

May I ask why ? you would want one, Bosch has a small one that's setup with the belt ( 1 HP ) But I have not seen one bigger

I have seen pictures from 1900's when many tools ran on belts but it's old tech.stuff the norm..sounds like youi saw some very old equipment

I did curiousgeorge. He bought it out of st. charles missouri from a company that is no longer in business. He said it was over 30 years ago when he bought them. Thats why i want one cause it has out lasted all of his normal routers. next time i go over there i will take a pic so you guys dont think I am crazy!!!!
