    original mini shaper?

    While digging around my 'stuff' looking for router parts, I found the original owners manual. Very oil soaked but still intact in a plastic bag.
    Reading it I found a reference to using the PC Model 5004 mini shaper. This pic accompanied the paragraph. Hard to tell if it is a router with shaper mountings or is a dedicated unit. They also say you can use the router for these tasks.
    I often laugh when I take out my Grizzly mini shaper but, fact is, it has proven to be a hard working and very useful tool. If I didn't this one, I would buy one.
    But if the 5004 is a dedicated mini shaper it seems Grizzly was not the first with the idea.

    That set up looks like it would fly off the workbench

    It looks to me it is the router mounted upside down. I'm guilty of doing it a couple of times, taking all the precautions, but it doesn't feel safe.
    Best regards,

    That looks like it may have been an accessory to a PC router that would "convert" it into a mini shaper. Not sure though, I'd have to do some research. Cool though.
