Powermatic sells a 3 horsepower shaper for $2,350.
Delta sells one for $1,600.
Shoot, even Grizzly wants $825 for one.
How do you figure Ridgid could produce a 3 horsepower shaper for five hundred bucks? I wouldn't buy one, the only way it could be done is by cheapening everything to the point of danger. A good quality 3 horsepower motor alone sells for over half the price you've listed.
I just did a new thread on the same subject(oops , im new) The shaper is my most important tool, and if rigid came out with one , i and my best friend would each by one without a doubt.i have everything theyve made woodworking wise , and i have to say despite a couple of flaws here and there, they re (IMO) the best product for the money hands down.
