Powermatic® Shaper 5HP 3PH w/Digital Readout & Casters

This new PM2700 Shaper offers more features to you than any other shaper in the same class. The extra large 30" x 40" precision ground cast iron table includes a heavy duty miter gauge with an aluminum extruded support. The built-in, omni-directional caster system (patent pending) is retractable into the base. A quick-release lever allows fast speed and belt changes. The extruded aluminum fence has several T-slots so you can mount a wood face to create a no-clearance surface around any shaper or router bit. The fence also gives you the ability to quickly move the fence close to its final position, lock it in and then use the precision micro adjustments on each side of the cutter to dial in exactly the position you need. Adding to the precision of this machine is a digital readout for the spindle height. This allows making adjustments to within .001" in the spindle height, which is critical when aligning rail and stile cutters for those raised panel doors.

  • Integrated caster system built into the cast iron base for instant shop mobility
  • Spindle height digital readout for making fine incremental adjustments on multiple passes
  • Heavy duty 30" x 40" precision ground tabletop for smooth stock feeding
  • Convenient quick lock belt tensioning for easy speed adjustment
  • Industrial fence system with fine adjust dials for more precise positioning
  • 5HP totally enclosed motor offers plenty of power
  • Two spindle speeds (reversible) for a variety of work
  • Superior clear cutter guard promotes safety, allows observation of the entire cut

Can standard router bits with 1/2 inch shank be used in this shaper
Ken R on Feb 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Ken, yes. I purchased collets to hold 1/2" and As I recall, also 1/4" shanks. You have to pay attention to the feed speed however, so not to overload the bit. This is essentially a ginormous router table!
can you stack cutter heads on spindle and if so how far does the spindle adjust up and down in inches ?
Tony H on May 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Tony, yes, you can stack cutters on the spindle, up to 4" of them. The spindle adjusts such that you can use the top or bottom position of the spindle.
