    Opinion of the Powermatic 3 or 5 hp shaper please

    Thread Starter: Dan Chouinard

    I think it may be time to step up from router table to shaper. Primarily will be used for making door parts. Router table has served me well but look forward to using a power feeder. Want to buy new machine. Does powermatic make a good shaper? Should I get 3 or 5 hp? Thanks
