Shop Fox W1763 2-1/2 HP Shaper
Our affordable heavy-duty 2-1/2 HP Shaper with all of the features of its bigger brothers and more: Built-in mobile base, precise spindle elevation gauge, ratcheting fence locks with independent left and right micro-adjustment, precision ground cast iron table, fully adjustable cutter guard, easy-to-change 2-speed belt drive, and convenient pedestal controls.
Easy Access Motor Compartment
Access the motor compartment for changing spindle speeds and switching between router bits and shaper cutters. The W1763 comes with 1/2-inch and 3⁄4-inch spindles for use with similarly sized shaper cutters, also included are 1⁄4-inch and 1⁄2-inch collets for use with router bits. The shaper operates at 7,000 RPM and 10,000 RPM. Typically, the faster speed is used when cutting with router bits and the slower speed is used when cutting with shaper cutters. Always check the rated speed for any cutter before installing it.
Micro-Adjustable Split Fence
The type of cut dictates the position of the fence pieces during operation. There are three basic types of cuts when straight shaping—full face, partial face, and plunge cuts. Because the shaper fence is independently adjustable, you can set up the shaper to cut part or all of the workpiece edge giving the ability to take progressively deeper passes on large profiles so the final pass results in a smoother and more consistent finish.
The W1763 shaper utilizes a 2-1⁄2 HP, 220V single-phase motor, with both forward/reverse capabilities and spindle speeds of either 7,000 or 10,000 RPM for maximum versatility. This shaper also features a precision-ground cast-iron table, hold-downs, safety guard, built-in 4-inch dust port and integrated mobile base for moving it where you need it. This beauty will handle it all.
