    my jet shaper

    this is the shaper that i bought a couple of years ago for $125. in looking to see what kind of shaper it was, i found a site that was selling the same one for $400 what i'm planning on doing, is to take it off it's stand (the casters are beyond shot), and mount it on a riser (as the motor hangs lower than the base), and put it on the one mobile work bench that i have.

    Senior piece of woodworking equipment. That not a senior piece of woodworking equipment. try and beat this one. It's a 1929 King Sealey scroll saw. All cast Iron, it will scroll a 2" thick peice and you can scroll a 24" peice. It way way over 100 lbs and is all cast. It will pass the nickol teswt, absolutly no vibration.

    I use it to make pieces when I do restorations and need to swing tight curves.

    OK maybe we should start a new thread to see who has the "oldest Arn"...
