Phantom Shaper


I have never seen a machine like that, is it a molder or a shaper?

A molder makes profiles on trim and usually has a feed to feed the material through the machine.

While that planer can mold, a molder will only cut profiles, it won't plane, it basically makes trim only.

Yeah this monster I have has a fence thing to line up the molding so it stays true running thru. The shaper in this thread is for steel. Uses cutters a lot like a lathe and the head moves back and forth across the workpiece shaving it down. It can cut keyways, cut slots, shoulders, and probably more things that I have yet to discover in my effort to educate myself on its operation
