    shaper platform

    with my shaper's motor hanging inside of, and well below the flanges that held it to the base, i have found that it would be right awkward to use now that it is off of it's base, and would sit at an angle on the bench. so i decided to make a platform for it to sit on. i measured the inside dimensions of the flanges (that's the other side of the out side larry ), and the distance of the motor beyond the bottom of the table. the platform was easy enough to make, as 2x6's on end, with a 3/4" plywood base gives more than enough clearance for the motor. i cut notches in the framework for the power cord and the on/off switch. it's not pretty, but it's functional.

    Not pretty, but functional is good in my book Dan!
